    Thanks for the article, enjoyed it immensely. I often thought the fiction editors at The New Yorker were really the major influences in American fiction for decades.

  8. Like most here, I've been a huge baseball fan all my life, but in the past couple of years, the way MLB has gone about its business, the hold the present game has on me is becoming very tenuous, to say the least. This present "idea being floated around" will kill the World Series, as it won't be close to the two best teams, but a tournament of survival. For me, if this happens... I'm out. My interest in the present game will end, I'll still read about the history of the game I love, but actually paying money for the present product, investing time and emotion in what's going on now, I'm done.
  9. Play ball! 2019 MLB season thread

    Good to have a upbeat person like Pence on the team. It will be interesting to see the kind of personality the Giants will have this year, it seemed like Bochy liked the low-key, subdued player, over the flashy, intense, gregarious type, eg. Posey, Belt, Panic, Duffy, Crawford, et.al. The last two season they've been a very dull team. Hopefully they'll liven up a bit this year.
