Logan, Simontacchi are injured

Outfielder Nook Logan and pitcher Jason Simontacchi have both pulled groin muscles in the past few days, and will therefore probably miss the first couple weeks of the regular season, which is now only a few days away!!! Ryan Church will probably take Logan's place in center field, and Simontacchi will probably be replaced by Jerome Williams in the starting rotation. Kory Casto is in line to become backup outfielder for the time being. See As for the infield, Josh Wilson has earned himself a spot on the 25-man roster, having batted .366 during spring training. Keep it up, Josh!

Also, there is a progress report on the stadium construction project in D.C., with an impressive photo, at It shows that the roof covers almost all of the fourth deck, which is almost contiguous with the third deck, like in Citizens Bank Park and other newer stadiums. A big roof is certainly good, but I wish it were a little bigger, as the sun can get awfully hot in Washington during the summer. "[B]y July or at some point in the summer, most of the building's structural work should be completed."

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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