Nats derail, get back on track
They literally did derail on the train back from New York last night. Fortunately, it was only a minor incident, and no one was injured; see MLB.com. The Nationals had to catch an emergency replacement train to Washington, losing precious hours of sleep. The Phillies are fighting tooth and nail to grab the NL wild card spot, and the first inning in tonight's seemed to indicate they were going to run roughshod over the bleary-eyed Nats. Somehow, Ramon Ortiz settled down after that and didn't allow any more runs over the next five innings, while a clutch double by Ryan Zimmerman in the third inning put the Nationals ahead for good. Brian Schneider batted in an insurance run in the eighth inning that proved to be decisive, as Chad Cordero allowed a run in the top of the ninth. The Phillies still fell short, though, 4 to 3.
With 19 home runs, 107 RBIs, and 47 doubles already (sixth in the major leagues), Ryan Zimmerman is becoming the clear favorite to win the 2006 NL Rookie of the Year Award.
PNC Park on CBS
Did anyone catch the premier episode of the new CBS drama series Smith? The opening scene took place on the Allegheny River, with PNC Park in the background, all lit up at night. That sure caught my attention!

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:
- Wild birds (LAST)
- Science & Technology
- Latin America
- Culture & Travel
- Canaries ("Home birds")
- Baseball (FIRST)
