Red Sox halt Rockies' streak

The Red Sox have a clear edge in this World Series, and last night's game erased any doubt about that. Josh Beckett started off the game with three strikeouts, and Dustin Bedroia set the tone for the Red Sox awesome offensive power with a leadoff home run in the bottom of the first. Nevertheless, it was a close game until the fifth inning, when the Red Sox batters exploded, setting a variety of records. Final score: 13-1. Thus, the Rockies' amazing ten-game winning streak came to an abrupt end. So much for the "advantage" of eight days rest! Now comes the true test of character: Will the Rockies bounce back and make it a competitive series, or will they wilt under the pressure?

GABP fixup

The Great American BallparkGreat American Ballpark diagram has been revised to include the new "Riverboat deck" club section in center field, plus a few minor corrections. Thanks to Mike Zurawski for pointing that out to me.

Free parking at RFK?

The Washington Nationals apparently jumped the gun in announcing that fans will be able to park free at the RFK Stadium parking lots next year, with free shuttle buses to the new stadium. Negotiations are still underway with D.C. officials, who are not too happy about this. As the harsh reality of parking shortages around the new stadium becomes evident early next year, there will be angry recriminations and loud complaints from fans. See Washington Post.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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