Nats get mile-high reality check
Overall, the Washington Nationals played quite well in the four-game weekend series in Denver, outscoring the Rockies 21-18. But because most of those runs were piled on in the first game of the series, when they won 14-6, they didn't have enough "left over" to win any of the next three games. And so, for the first time all year, the Nats lost three games in a row, by respective margins of 4, 1, and 1 runs, and now share second place with the Florida Marlins. So much for the Nats' proclivity for winning close games.
Baseball page reorganization
I have been busy reorganizing my Baseball pages, all of which from now on will be accessible from one of these four navigational link pages:
- Stadium lists (links to 82 stadium pages, listed alphabetically by name and by city)
- Stadium comparisons (links to 16 chronology, ranking, and statistical pages, etc.)
- Franchises (links to 8 pages on the Major Leagues, the Negro leagues, Latin America, the Washington Nationals, etc.)
- Baseball in American culture (links to a new movies page, now separated from my "corny musings")
Those pages are still "under construction," pending a check on how the new, standardized layout appears on different computer systems. Same goes for the Baseball home page, which will soon become the central navigational nexus for the baseball pages, as the Baseball site map page becomes "deprecated." (That's computer lingo for "phased out.") This is a long-overdue renovation, but the end result will be a much cleaner look and a more consistent interface system. Things will be in a state of flux for the next few days, but the process of navigation will soon be much easier than before.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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)
