Let Me Stay Here a While

I am of two minds when it comes to the Padres’ unexpected success in 2010. It is satisfying to know that a team that had the second lowest payroll in baseball and that was given little chance at finishing anywhere other than last in the National League West notched 90 wins (fourth most in 42 [...]

Tuesday Links (27 Apr 10)

The Friday links are getting a bit unwieldy, so I thought I’d try a different approach. Rather than dumping a boatload of links at the end of the week, I’m going to post shorter lists… well, whenever. This should make them less daunting and more timely. We’ll see how it goes; if you have thoughts [...]

Playoff IGD: Cardinals @ Mets (13 Oct 06)

first pitch: 5:05 p.m., PT television: FOX matchup: Chris Carpenter (15-8, 3.09 ERA) vs John Maine (6-5, 3.60 ERA) buy tickets Who is John Maine, and how did he put up such good numbers this season? He coughed up a few too many homers, but opponents hit just .212/.287/.399 against him; not too shabby.

Playoff IGD: A’s @ Tigers (13 Oct 06)

first pitch: 1:30 p.m., PT television: FOX matchup: Rich Harden (4-0, 4.24 ERA) vs Kenny Rogers (17-8, 3.84 ERA) buy tickets It snowed in Detroit on Thursday. Forecast for Friday afternoon calls for temperatures in the mid-40s and precipitation. Yuck.

Impromptu Playoff Meetup

My wife and I are heading over to The Field before Saturday night’s game at Petco. If anyone wants to join us, we’ll be there about 5:30 p.m. and probably stick around till 6:30 or 7. I don’t care what the odds are; I haven’t been to a playoff game in 20 years and I [...]

Notes and Links

Haven’t done one of these in a while. They’ve been piling up over here, and now I give them to you: Laurence Simon at This Blog Is Full of Crap is keeping track of which bloggers are rooting for which team in the playoffs. He may also be sending folks over here to mock me [...]

Movies, Playoffs, and Other Junk

Is thing still on? Oh, hey. Didn’t see ya there. How’s it going? Busy over here. Been working and re-working (and possibly killing) the melody to a song I’m writing. Ended up dropping the whole thing an octave so I don’t sound like a really horrible version of Stephen Bishop. Been watching a bunch of [...]

2002 Playoffs: Twins vs A’s

Wow. That Twins-A’s game yesterday was about as good as it gets. I actually managed to watch the entire game virtually uninterrupted (except for a brief spot in the top of the fourth when Fox Family Channel disappeared for about two minutes). I’ll make a few quick observations, as someone who doesn’t follow either team [...]
