Double-A: -Durbin Feltman has a 2.13 ERA across his last 10 relief appearances for Portland (Red Sox), but his rough start to the season is still haunting him. Through 26 total appearances, he's 2-2 with a 4.65 ERA 31 K's against 23 BB. -Brian Howard has pitched at least 6 innings in his last 4 starts for Midland (A's), picking up W's in the last two.

Short-Season A-Ball and Rookie Leagues: -Nick Lodolo is scoreless across 4.1 IP in his first three starts for Billings (Reds), taking no-decisions in all three. His sterling 0.00 ERA matches nicely with 6 K's against zero walks. -Johnny Rizer has hit safely in 3 of his last 4 for Aberdeen (Orioles), but cooled off a tad after his insane start to his pro career which included taking Noah Syndagaard deep.

    At the encouragement of a fellow poster, I am sharing big news about my son from the past week. He is on youtube and has his own channel if you search for Zak McAllister Just a follow up on my son’s week at the 2019 International Juggler’s Association Annual Festival. So, he won the three biggest awards:World Champ for Individual World Champ for TeamsPeople’s Choice Award (voted on by ballot by all festival attendees for their favorite person at the festival)He also got four gold medals for lesser events and won another audience voting performance competition. He’s only the second person ever to win all three big awards in the same week. Essentially, every single thing he was eligible for, he won. He was on fire. It is a niche group of performers around the world, but in that world, he is on top for the moment. It was a very cool dad moment for me to see him compete against people from around the world and come out on top.

    I didn't see this posted; please forgive if I missed it. Our new scoreboard is slightly larger than Baylor's: https://www.frogsowar.com/2019/7/14/20693811/revivalry-is-alive-and-well-new-tcu-scoreboard-built-with-the-bears-in-mind-baylor-rhule-patterson The loge boxes, suites, and club seats being built on the stadium’s east side will be complemented by a new, improved scoreboard as well - one that will measure 108’4” wide and 48’6” high. That’s 5,500 square feet of Snackwards Cam, for those of you playing at home. While it was a foregone conclusion that the Horned Frogs would take this opportunity to upgrade a scoreboard that left something to be desired, the measurements were set with a very specific goal in mind: be bigger than the one at the school 90 miles down I-35. Baylor's video board measures in at a barely visible 107’ wide by 47’ high. The Bears’ McLane Stadium opened in 2014. Not to critique Ms. Triebwasser's math, but that puts us at a little over 5254 ft^2 compared to baptist's 5029, a little over 225 more square feet. Suck it, rapey bears!

    The Camster was victorious over Istomin 2, 4 and 4 this morning and has advanced to the Round of 64 where he will play Kei Nishikori (ATP#7). Cam got into a little controversy with a tweet about how the Wimbledon wild cards should be announced 6 weeks or so before the tourney rather than just a few days before - he's been the recipient of wild cards before and probably shouldn't have opined.

    I picked up my copy of Dave Campbell's Texas Football today. Some things of note: Best recruiting class of 2014 = TCU. The Frogs never win the recruiting ratings, but almost always are first in this magazine's review five years afterward. College coach most trusted by 252 Texas high school coaches = Gary Patterson. (Least trusted = Jimbo Fisher) Among 40 top coaches under 40 = Sonny Cumbie Best receiver in Texas = Jalen Reagor All-Texas first team offense = Reagor, Lucas Niang. Second team = Sewo Olonilua. Best defensive lineman in Texas = Ross Blacklock All Texas first team defense = Blacklock, Jeff Gladney. Second team = Corey Bethley, Garrett Wallow, Julius Lewis, Innis Gaines. 2018 class 4A player of the year = Daimarqua Foster. 3A player of the year = Darwin Barlow 2019 high school Super Team 1st team = James Sylvester. 3rd team = Tyler Bailey Pretty good write-up on the Frogs by Shehan Jeyarajah. Of course, it's DCTF, so there is no proofreading. The depth chart shows a third of our players as "6-2, 220, Fr"

    Wimbledon starts today and Cam Norrie (ATP #55) is scheduled to play Denis Istomin (ATP# 115), an Uzbek player of Russian descent, in the Round of 128 early tomorrow morning. Cam is also in the doubles draw - teaming with Jaume Munar, a Spaniard, he's scheduled to play Dominic Inglot and Austin Krajicek on Wednesday in the Round of 32. For fans that can't get in to see his match on the court, there's always Norrie Hill, which Wimbledon has set up for Cam's fans to watch on big screen TV.

    I've been travelling and/or sick for a few days. Our current 65: Colson Altmann A few memorable 65s: Dick Lowe Brady Foltz The "Hurricane Game" against Stanford was a pretty memorable experience for any of the 10,000 or so of us that were actually in the stands that rainy, rainy day while the remnants of Hurricane Ike blew through Fort Worth. Despite the size, it was quite possibly the most vocal crowd I can remember at Amon G. this side of the 2009 Utah game. Anyway, it was GP's 65th win at TCU. Nick Browne, one of the last men's soccer players at TCU, also kicked 65 career field goals on the gridiron Baylor just could not handle Jalen Reagor on his 65-yard TD reception from The Muehl in last year's win in Pappadeauxville.

    The Camster beat Chardy early this morning 6-3, 7-6 (7-4) at Eastbourne and will now play friend and fellow Brit Kyle Edmond (ATP#31) in the quarters. Cam is #49 and this is a battle between the U.K.'s #1 and #2 players. Cam's doubles match starts shortly - he and Londero and playing Mclachlan and Nielson. Widow lost 3 and 1 to Nicolas Mejia in singles at Cancun but he's still alive in doubles. Jerry Lopez will be playing Joshua Ortlip later today or tomorrow (he's won something like 11 matches in a row); Nick Chappell will play Luiz Enrique Mancilla de la Cruz later today and is also still alive in doubles with Jerry. Cam and Londero lost in doubles 3-6, 7-6, 5-10.
