Jose Altuve

voted 15X (electronically) for Altuve to play 2B at the All-Star Game. In years past we filled out individual votes one at a time on paper at the ballpark...Just couldn't see Infante (BA = .235) starting.

Carlos Correa

Anybody see the Astros/Yankees series this weekend?

Correa is reminding people of a young A-Rod. Same height, same position,

Re: Apple Cash: too much of a good thing?

I don't own AAPL for the joy of it (or even for the dividend - although I like that part of it). I own it to produce wealth that I can spend. I want the stock FAIRLY priced when I sell it.

Re: tickets to Stros game/AOLFoolmanAgain

Thanks for the kind words.

Hey, no problem with the tickets. It's going to be a last minute deal anyway (my son organizing his friends). I bought the tickets way in advance because the prices can be 1/2 off.
