The Beatles: A Digression

I got a few e-mails today about my reference in the ALCS gamer this morning to The Beatles' entire "Sgt. Pepper's" album playing over the PA at Fenway Park before last night's game. As a couple of readers noted, it...

It is 2:15 a.m.

The Rockies and Diamondbacks are in the 11th inning, tied 2-2. Raise your hand if you're still watching this game? No, not you, Mr. Selig. Didn't think so. Good ballgame. I hope, at some point, to describe it for y'all....

Ramdom mid-game thoughts, NLCS Game 2

I didn't give you pregame lineups, but I do have these things for you: * Ubaldo Jimenez throws hard. I have his strikeouts at 97, 99, 98, 96 and 99 mph. Throws that hard on the hands. Mark it down...

ALCS Game 1: The Big Dance

I've been kidding Svrluga that he's covering the NIT, while I'm at The Big Dance. No disrespect intended to the Rockies or Diamondbacks, of course. I find both of them infinitely fascinating and fun to watch. (The game action on...

Hill's second surgery; two more outrighted

So Shawn Hill's surgery was, miraculously, labeled a success. You'll recall that this was the second of two procedures, the one to clean up his left shoulder, which was originally injured when he dove back to a base in Florida...

Advantage, Rockies?

First, I'm interested in how many folks watched this game last night. I have this feeling that the NLCS could be pretty intriguing, and that some future stars could be discovered here. Take Jeff Francis last night. The guy's not...

Manny Acta, John Schuerholz, the 40-man, etc.

Sorry to be out of the loop the last couple days. Travel, breathing, etc. But no excuses. It's the postseason, and now Sheinin and I are both in place, with the NLCS to start. Just got some Manny Acta news,...

In-between games, the Yankees

Kind of a lull here before play begins again on Thursday in Phoenix. But I thought I'd share a couple things with you. Are you a Yankees fan? Do you hate the Yankees? Either way, you have to listen to...

Game 4

Well, we're the only series still alive. Greetings from Yankee Stadium. It's a half-hour from gametime and the place is filling up. Eminem's "Lose Yourself" (OK, it's become a sports cliche) is playing over the PA. Mayor Bloomberg and former...

One series standing

So there have been 12 games in four series. Three series were sweeps. That leaves us with one game - one lousy game - tonight, Game 4 of the Yankees-Indians. Considering the lunacy I figured was coming, this has to...

The Boss is back

And I ain't talking about Springsteen (although, come to think of it, he's back too... The new record is excellent, and I've got tickets for the Nov. 12 show at MCI Center. Any of y'all going to be there? Ah,...

Two more sweeps?

Is that possible? What if both the Red Sox and Indians win today? Then we go four days without baseball. Is that good for the sport? I don't think so. We have Diamondbacks-Rockies in the NLCS, starting Thursday. I just...
