Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt remembers Joe Morgan, ‘God’s gift to baseball’

Joe Morgan’s eye-popping Hall of Fame ledger does not include any saves, but he did earn one in his career.

Morgan, who died at 77 on Sunday, spent the 1983 season with the Phillies and helped the club win the National League pennant.

In May of that season, Mike Schmidt was in the throes of a hellacious slump. Schmidt’s struggles reached an agonizing crescendo in a game against Montreal at Veterans Stadium on May 28.

“I struck out four times on 12 pitches,” Schmidt said Monday. “You can look it up.”

We did.

He was right.

In the top of the ninth inning, the game was delayed for 18 minutes by rain. His misery prolonged, Schmidt retreated to the clubhouse. He was beside himself.

“I was actually thinking about retiring, getting in my car in full uniform and driving home,” he said.

Morgan walked over to Schmidt in the clubhouse

Fantasy Football Rankings Week 5, 2020: Model that beat experts says start Mike Davis, sit DeVante Parker

Running back depth has been tested by major Fantasy football injuries through the first several weeks of the season. Browns star Nick Chubb was the latest tailback to go down after he sprained his MCL in Week 4. Chubb was put on injured reserve and will miss at least six weeks, opening the door for former Pro Bowler Kareem Hunt to soar up the Fantasy football rankings. Jaguars running back James Robinson has also been a pleasant surprise, putting up 446 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns through four weeks.

Hunt has a tough matchup against a stingy Colts defense this week, but Robinson will attack a Houston defense that ranks dead-last in rushing yards allowed, potentially making him one of the most popular Fantasy football picks. Before locking in your Week 5 Fantasy football lineups, be sure to check out the Week 5 Fantasy football rankings from the advanced

‘Mr. Vice President, I’m speaking’: Women praise Kamala Harris’s response to Mike Pence’s debate interruptions

Minutes into the vice presidential debate on Wednesday night, as Senator Kamala Harris described her view of the Trump administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Vice President Mike Pence and debate moderator Susan Page began to interject.

“Mr. Vice President, I’m speaking. I’m speaking,” Harris turned to Pence and said.

Harris repeated the refrain later in the debate, while rebutting Pence’s claim that Joe Biden would try to raise taxes on Americans in response to a question on the economy posed by Page.

According to NBC News, which tracked the number of interruptions by each candidate during the debate, Pence interrupted Harris almost twice as many times as she interrupted him.

The phrase began trending on Twitter, with Harris’s use of the line sparking support from women who appeared to empathize with being interrupted by men at work.

It even played out during CNN’s post-debate broadcast, when, as political analyst

Mike Pence’s Vice Presidential Debate Lecture to Kamala Harris Isn’t Likely to Help Trump With Women

Even before Wednesday night’s slow-boil of a vice presidential debate in Salt Lake City, the re-election bid of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence was in trouble with the one demographic on which elections hinge: women.

Then, with condescension and contempt, Pence sat with Sen. Kamala Harris of California, the first woman of color to be on a major presidential ticket, and lectured and side-stepped. When moderator Susan Page of USA Today declared that the debate would be civil, Pence visibly smirked. He knew better.

“Sen. Harris, it’s a privilege to be on this stage with you,” Pence said as the evening started. He later praised her history-making candidacy and thanked her for her public service. It was a veneer of respect that he didn’t necessarily practice during the debate. Repeatedly, he refused to heed time limits or even answer the question being asked. (To be sure, dodging

Sen. Kamala Harris sought to put a halt to Vice President Mike Pence’s talking over her during their Wednesday debate.

While Wednesday night’s vice-presidential debate was much more civil than last week’s interruption-intensive face-off between the presidential candidates, Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris also talked over each other at times — and Joe Biden’s running mate wasn’t having it.

“Mr. Vice President, I am speaking.”

“If you don’t mind letting me finish, we can have a conversation.”

“He interrupted me, and I’d like to just finish, please.”

Harris’s repeated refusal to let Pence talk over her led to these quotes trending on Twitter on Wednesday night. And many tweets featured other women calling out how often they have experienced similar interruptions in their lives, particularly at work.
