Tom Boswell of the Washington Post has an observation about the overall state of the Nationals. Specifically, he writes about what is lacking with the team right now: “The Nats need a stronger spine, one less likely to crack. They don’t need to fix all the vertebrae. But it is backbone, something no baseball analysis has…… Continue reading About that Team Chemistry thing…..
By accident of fandom, I root for the American League in baseball. I didn’t choose to be pro-designated hitter; I was born into my mother’s family and there it is. Since I became a sentient baseball watcher, my team has had a DH, so, when a National League fan pontificates about the purity and superiority of…… Continue reading From the AL Looking In
I’ve long been a proponent of seeding playoffs by overall record, and not by division winners. In fact, I wouldn’t mind moving to a balanced schedule and getting rid of divisions entirely, but I suppose divisions have more to do with travel logistics and artificial rivalries than anything else these days. This brings us to…… Continue reading Should MLB adopt a NBA type system in seeding playoffs?
For the third straight game, the Mets came from behind late to beat the Nationals, thus completing a 3 game sweep. The Mets have now won 6 straight over the Nats, and have a commanding 7 game lead with 23 games to play. This thing is over, right? Sure, the Nats still have 3 games…… Continue reading It’s all over – Mets will win the NL East. Right?

So now that it looks like a lot of you have decided to hang around here for now, I’ve come to a few conclusions. First, I must be totally nuts. What in the world did I get myself into? Second, I think most people seem pretty happy here, terrible theme not withstanding (Withstanding? Not Withstanding? …… Continue reading Call to arms! Err. Pen. Err, keyboard?
So I came across this article the other day. I’ll just leave a few excerpts of it here. Gee whiz, lookit dat anorexic right fielder in the Brooze uniform wearing a latex Ryan Braun face mask. Funny thing about that. It’s a treat to watch that guy, whoever he is, crushing ground ball singles through…… Continue reading New Post! Talk!
Yes, this is a temporary place for some of us to gather while we decide if we are all actually leaving HBT, or if they come to their senses and put out the flaming fucking dumpster fire that has spawned out of a site redesign. Still with that said, when I created the blog, I…… Continue reading Themed
There has been a lot of chatter going on at Twitter (It’s my guess that Craig can’t navigate the comment section of his own site either.) so I decided I’d link a few comments here for clarification and posterity’s sake. It seems that he started off very snarky with a giant attitude, then has slowly…… Continue reading Flurry of Twitter comments
Hello everyone. After the debacle that has become the new NBC site redesign I have begun considering creating a place where we can all gather and continue the fun we have had commentating on all of the baseball news of the day. Hopefully this won’t be necessary as I am optimistic that our cries will…… Continue reading For all those that hate the new HBT Design
