I’m trying to imagine what it must be like to have a a tornado more than a mile wide with winds up to 300 miles per hour bearing down on you. The worst of the storm that devastated Moore, OK went south of where my Oklahoma City relatives live, and it’s a bad one. [...]
Cole DeVries continues his rehab and the rest is minor league stuff.
I used to love to hate the White Sox, but that fiery passion has cooled considerably in the past few years. Now I just like to dislike them. For this I blame Ozzie Guillen, who somehow against all odds and expectations brought a new level of civility and respect to the formerly fierce and [...]

Even casual fans, with proper coaching and education, are able to see that the Win is a flawed statistic for measuring pitcher performance. We can all take consolation in just how flawed the statistic is as the Twins begin a four-game series this evening at Fenway with Clay Buchholz taking the mound for Boston. [...]

Three weeks ago I was pretty much done with taxes, except for entering one form that my daughter needed to provide. After weeks of nagging, she finally sent it to me last Friday. I plugged it into the old 1040 today, and my refund got a happy ending. What’s the lesson? Perseverance pays off. [...]

Mike Pelfrey vs. Jeremy Guthrie
My first ever game log and it comes against a Jeremy. Fortunately, it also comes in the second game of a series after an opening loss, so I [...]
For some reason Kansas City has received more than its fair share of musical tributes. Rodgers and Hammerstein gave the city the Broadway treatment with Everything’s Up to Date in Kansas City back in 1943. Over the years the town has been lauded in Leadbelly’s Kansas City Papa, Jelly Roll Morton’s Kansas City Stomp, [...]
