Lots of really good stuff there, sir.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Worley vs. Verlander... ouch... is there a scenario where that ever plays out well?

Meant to post this earlier: 

 

Here's my postgame coverage. You may find it a bit different than everyone else's. Hopefully that's a good thing!

The recap must be on a site blocked at work. Alas, I'll have to look at it at home.

Yeah, it was colloquially referred to as "2014".

I cannot overstate how sad it was to watch DanSan get dressed all by himself in the background of that Sano interview video. So sad.

Nice work, btw! Keep it coming!

Just a note from an admirer...if any of you out there want a place for excellent analysis...this is it. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

Just finished reading the pre-game.Really like the pace of your writing. 

 

4/14 Game Notes:"You can’t win the game in the sixth inning — but you sure can lose it."Makes me wonder if there are statistics that show the recent trend of using many RP's in a game are lessening this...

 

1-2-3 Garcia's!I'm still waiting for an OF filled with Saltalamacchia's or Knickerbocker...

 

Polanco, Sano and Mejia:a good game by all 3.Hoping to see much more from the outfield.

 

Great Articles!
