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.
The weather is warming up, and so is the baseball action. But no pitcher has been hotter in a game this season than Sean Manaea of the Oakland Athletics, who scored the first no-hitter of 2018. The feat is more impressive in that it was against the team with the best record, and best offense in baseball, the Boston Red Sox. Manaea got the 9 inning complete game with 2 walks and 10 strikeouts in an efficient 108 pitches. He has long been considered a work in progress, in that his stuff was dominant, but seemed like he could not harness it. Well through five starts this season, he leads the American League in innings pitched and has allowed only 22 baserunners in 36.2 innings. And of the 5 runs he's allowed, 4 were solo home runs. He's not giving up much, but on Saturday night, he gave up nothing hit wise. And is a worthy Sportsman of the Week!
