Let's start the morning with a few links, eh?
The gamer examined the formula Florida has used again and again this year in its domination of the Nats.
The notebook looks back on the P-Nats championship, and what it means. (Phase One: Complete, Jim Bowden says.)
I generally try to keep this blog baseball-specific, but I wanted to acknowledge the passing of David Foster Wallace, a literary supernova whose writing talent was both electric and humbling. Though he's most known for his novel "Infinite Jest," his short stories and non-fiction work was just as impactful. His 2000 reporting with John McCain from the campaign trail -- "Up, Simba," I believe the article was called when it appeared in Rolling Stone -- remains the most insightful, unfiltered piece of "political process" journalism I've ever read. Wallace's love of tennis, too, was captivating: He wrote about it often, and so well that 1.) it turned me into a tennis fan and 2.) it inspired me to become a very inadequate tennis player.
Here's his 2006 story on Roger Federer.
