Maybe Rockies owner Dick Monfort will make enough money from the All-Star Game to keep shortstop Trevor Story and not whine about the cost. — L.M., Littleton Kiz : Even if Monfort wanted to break his piggy bank, I’m not certain this story will have a happy ending in Colorado. Free to leave the Rockies when his contract expires at season’s end, why would Story want to continue playing for a team that’s not committed to winning? Sitting in my local pizza joint, imploring beer guzzlers around me to boycott any business owned by Monfort, I learned I was preaching to the choir. There were 12 baseball fans at the bar. All 12 wanted to see Monfort lose. Seven were Rockies fans bent on doing their part to push Monfort to the poor house. The other five were fans of other major-league teams that find it boring to play the minor-league Rox. Boycotting the players was not the vibe, but not paying Monfort another nickel sure as heck was. — C.B, Northglenn Kiz : Homefield … [Read more...] about Kickin’ It with Kiz: Could financial windfall from the All-Star Game keep Trevor Story in a Rockies uniform?
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The brain of Phillip Adams — the former NFL player who killed a South Carolina physician, three family members and a repairman before fatally shooting himself — will be tested for a degenerative disease that has affected a number of pro athletes and has been shown to cause violent mood swings and other cognitive disorders, according to the local coroner. York County Coroner Sabrina Gast said in a statement issued on Friday that she had gotten approval from Adams’ family for the procedure to be included as part of his autopsy, which will be performed at the Medical University of South Carolina. The hospital will be working with Boston University , whose chronic traumatic encephalopathy center conducts research on the long-term effects of repetitive brain trauma in athletes and military personnel, according to its website.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays keep finding ways to frustrate the New York Yankees . Austin Meadows and Randy Arozarena homered off Domingo Germán, helping the Rays extend their mastery over their AL East rivals with a 4-0 victory on Saturday.

Tampa Bay also eliminated the Yankees from last year’s playoffs in a five-game series that went the distance. Six Tampa Bay pitchers combined to limit the Yankees to five hits, with an injury-riddled bullpen delivering a strong performance after starter Chris Archer departed with a forearm injury that landed him on the 10-day injured list. “Any time you shut out a team in major league baseball, it’s saying something,” manager Kevin Cash said. “When you do it in that fashion against that lineup, it’s really saying something.” Meadows got … [Read more...] about Yankees Fall To AL Champ Rays
Yet another bookseller has followed Amazon’s lead in removing a bestselling book questioning the advisability of sex reassignment surgery. Online aggregator bookshop.org has banned scholar Ryan T. Anderson’s 2018 book When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment , citing complaints. On April 9, Anderson wrote that bookshop.org, whose mission is “supporting local, independent bookstores” has confirmed it removed When Harry Became Sally due to “multiple complaints and concerns from customers, affiliates, and employees about the title.” As Breitbart News reported , online retail giant Amazon subjected Anderson’s work to a digital book-burning in February, scrubbing all traces of the book from its site just days before a Congressional vote on the Equality Act. Amazon cancelled the carefully researched book not because of any factual errors or incendiary language but because it undermines transgender ideology by showing its utter lack of scientific … [Read more...] about Big Tech Gains Momentum in Censoring ‘When Harry Became Sally’
