Baseball Stuffs

Hi, folks. I’m back! I’m alive! And I am now a new resident of the east coast!

Due to moving across this great country of ours for the last few days, I have missed a lot of baseball. 😦 Thankfully I was able to catch up with some stuff on twitter whenever I was near free WiFi, so there’s that. I did see that my Cubs friends all lost their collective minds with the EYBS(tm) finally ended.

There wasn’t a game last night. We have to face it; we’re nearing the end of baseball season. It’s always a sad time. I was reflecting with a friend last night, I only went to four games this year. It feels like I’ve been slacking! I’ll definitely do more next season. At the very least, when the Braves come to Washington.

panicAlso, while I was gone, the Braves announced their permanent manager hire, and to no one’s surprise, it was Brian Snitker, who was their interim manager after they got rid of Fredi Gonzalez. Atlanta really, really likes to promote from within. So much so that everyone in #BravesFam knew that Snit was going to be the manager. Talking to Bud Black and Ron Washington was merely a formality.

So, let’s talk some baseball. Anything cool going on with your teams? Are you excited for the prospect of an Indians/Cubs world series (oh please oh please)? If the Blue Jays make it, are we going to have to listen to Drake for a week nonstop? Tell us in the comments!

    1. Yeah, I was mildly surprised. Like waking up and finding out that Brian May had won the Nobel Prize for Physics.

      I think he wrote some really great songs over the years, mind you. But I have never entirely escaped the feeling that Dylan has spent his entire life running a con game on the world. Ask Joan Baez.

      But hey, if Barack Obama can get the Peace Prize for not being George Bush, I guess all bets are off.

      1. Here’s my professional (emeritus) opinion: Dylan is as great as, or greater than, anyone since Seferis who won the prize for writing poetry. If you really look at his best work, his ability to weave simultaneous narratives out of free association, suggestion and metaphor is as prodigious as any modern poet in English, including Yeats, Elliott, Stevens or Williams. As a social poet, he’s pretty near the equal of Mandelstam or Neruda. As a postmodernist, he’s more exemplary, I think, than John Ashberry (and I wonder sometimes if Ashberry would have found his distinctive voice without him).

        I’m delighted with the selection. Bob Dylan, Nobel laureate. Damned well about time, too.


      1. I don’t know. Seems like all these rock stars end up being knights eventually. I guess with sword fighting not so popular any more they have to have some new metric.
