Game 6, Tag-Team Style

Greetings once again from Fenway Park in Boston. Svrluga and I are both in the house and will be tag-teaming this one and Game 7, if necessary. Personally, I'm flying high because my alma mater, Vanderbilt, pulled off a major...

Ballpark Update

I haven't done enough with this stuff, but some of you I'm sure will find it interesting. During the season, we had a regular, short feature in the Monday paper called "Ballpark Update," which was provided to me by Rick...

We Interrupt This Postseason...

I'll make this brief, because I need to get back to the Joe Torre story I'm working on. But how about that one? As the incomparable George King wrote on the New York Post's Website this afternoon: "Joe Torre fired...

Finally: Nats coaching staff retained

So there has been some concern, given that Manny Acta said the coaches would know their fate right after the season, about what their fate would be. All my reporting showed that they would all be back, but it made...

Off Day Thoughts; Nats Radio Deal Done

So first of all, for the record, I was indeed on my couch last night, but I was having a beer with my pizza, watching the Indians explode for seven runs in the fifth. Still have this feeling that if...

Sportswriter of Destiny

So this Svrluga guy is probably home by now, sitting in his silk pajamas, drinking a glass of wine and enjoying a home-cooked meal -- or at least a microwave pizza. Dude is charmed, no doubt -- much like the...

The Last Glorious Night of October

Greetings from Jacobs Field. As the title of this post might suggest, it's a beautiful night here -- mid 60s and sunny, with temperatures dipping only into the mid 50s by the end of the night. And also as the...

Nats: Five who were designated are now free

Minor housekeeping on Nats. Remember that list of people who were designated for assignment from last week? The Nats needed to get them off the 40-man roster. Well, five of those have elected to become minor-league free agents: infielder Tony...

NLCS Game 3: Lineups

They are currently blaring what sounds like a Melissa Etheridge album into the press box. Not sure why. I can say that I would like it if they would MAKE IT STOP. Tarp is on at Coors Field. Wind is...

The ticking clock

Perhaps some day this week, either Sheinin or I will be able to write a story about a game that actually makes it into the newspaper. Here's Dave's story about Game 2 of the ALCS, which took 5 hours, 14...
