Major League Baseball Continues Play Catch-Up with New Technology

Since John Hodgeman of "The Daily Show" apparently doesn't have the time to fix Major League Baseball's myriad problems and controversial issues, I supposed I'll have to step in and get it done. Contrary to what you may imagine, I'm pretty busy myself. I could list all the stuff I have to deal with on […]

Andres Torres Signing Slams the Brakes on the Giants’ 2013 Offense

Let me write two things on the blackboard before class starts.

Arizona and KC Trades Earn 2012 MLB FUBAR Awards

Blogger Confidential: When the Tools of Ignorance Go Down

A funny thing happened on the way to my next blog: my beloved Dell Studio 1558 laptop lost its brakes, careened out of control and punched through several cloud storage containers before finally smashing into a virtual stone wall.

The Tao Of Tim Lincecum Verses the Offense of St. Louis

There are actually damn few truly defining moments in life, in sports, or in politics. Certainly interesting stuff happens all the time and a lot of it is important, but “defining”?
