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.
It was a busy week in baseball that started with the Hall of Fame induction, went through the trade deadline, and ended with a new team in first place in the National League East. Led by our sportsman of the Week, the New York Mets went 4-2 including a sweep of rival Washington Nationals to take the division lead. Lucas Duda is on a power binge. In those six games, he slugged 7 HR with 10 RBI while going 9 for 19 for a .473 clip while slugging 1.632 over the stretch. Duda isn't exactly tearing it up this season, but he tore it up for the week, a worthy Sportsman of the Week!
