Hi all.  Here's how I see baseball on this Monday, April 23. Though a full slate of games took place yesterday, I'm still marveling over the no-hitter thrown late Saturday night by the Athletics' Sean Manaea (MaNyeYah)  He didn't just pitch a no-hitter, he no-hit the hottest offensive juggernaut presently prowling major league baseball.  The Red ...
