    Noe Ramirez, who was a star right-handed pitcher for Alhambra High and Cal State Fullerton, has been with the Los Angeles Angels since 2017. The 30-year-old Ramirez is 1-0 with a 3.94 earned-run average in 17 relief appearances so far this season.

    Hey Tim, I know you are not a big Amat fan. I just thought I give a shout out to a local kid. I was listening to the Orioles and Yankess game this morning. I am not sure if anyone knows that Rio Ruiz is now the starting third baseman for the Orioles. It is always cool to see a local kid making it to the highest level of their sport.

    With the NFL having started their season Thursday night with 16,000 fans in attendance, my thoughts are why can’t we have limited fans for MLB games? The playoffs, the World Series? I know I’d pay to see some live games. Dodger Stadium is nice and fresh with their off season upgrades and 15,000 fans would only be about 25% of capacity. 25% of their vendors would probably love to get back to work.

    What parallels can be drawn between the terror attacks of 9/11 and today’s terror attacks in democratic-run cities?

    #3) Hopefully the rest of the league follows Miami’s lead. Stand for the National Anthem or kneel in the tunnel.
