Nationals in a nose dive

The Rockies completely dominated the Nationals, who were swept for the first time in over a month, and for the first time ever in a four-game series. In the latter three games, the Rockies amassed 20 more runs than did the home team. Frank Robinson fired bullpen coach John Wetteland, but it will take some time before we know whether that move will do any good. See

Tonight the Yankees came from behind to beat the Nationals, making it five losses in a row. It was the first time the Yankees played in Washington since 1971. As an old Yankees fan, I found myself in a state of deep confusion, but at least I could take cheer no matter which side won. The Nats actually had the lead for most of the game, but Gary Majewski allowed the visitors to tie it in the 8th, and Chad Cordero gave up the winning runs in the 9th. That bullpen... Bernie Williams hit the go-ahead home run; he was supposed to have retired after last season, but he is sure helping out his ailing team in a pinch this year. Attendance at RFK Stadium was 44,749, the most since the Nats' home opener in 2005. I heard that all three games this weekend are sold out. Can that be true?

AT&T / SBC / Pac Bell Park

AT&T Park The AT&T Park page has been updated with a new diagram that conforms to the new standard. Let's hope the "AT&T" name doesn't change as quickly as the two earlier names did.

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
