Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
When the name of Mickey Mantle is bantered about in terms of hitting performance, you're talking about a serious stretch of baseball. And the Toronto Blue Jays are playing that good of baseball of late, surging to the American League East lead by 4 games. Led by slugger 1B/DH Edwin Encarnacion, who went off this week for 10-24, with five HR and 10 RBI. In a week. The Jays went 5-2. For the month of May, Encarnacion hit 16 bombs, tying Mantle for the homers in May. Certainly worthy of Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
