Since all the political news is terrible and only getting worse, I decided to reflect on something very personal this week -- about a great event that happened this weekend.
Pitching's cryptic nature has caused many headaches over the years, with fantasy owners representing a large portion of sufferers. We're here today to investigate how K-BB rates can alleviate the pain.
Meritocracy has been a major topic of discussion in the corporate world of late. And why wouldn't it be? It is an admirable goal to reward your highes...
The quest to become the most informed fantasy owners in the universe continues. As always, no one number or set can tell the whole story.
Perhaps lightning will strike and Greinke will be unhittable again. But maybe not. I am perfectly aware that a sample size of one is a risky proposition. Maybe Greinke will prove the exception and defy the odds. But in this case, those odds are quite long.
When I was a kid, I tried everything. Soccer, baseball, football, basketball, rollerblading, it didn't matter. In 6th grade, I learned the trumpet; in 7th grade, I started dabbling in guitar; and in 8th grade, the junior high marching band lost their tuba player so I stepped in.

Who really cares what people think of you? I don't let it stop me. Just ask yourself: are you living in righteousness? Are you living your life in Jesus? Yes? Then that's all that matters. God is smiling on you.
I thought I'd share the experience of managing three kids and a Little League game on a school night, for those of you unfamiliar with it.

By Jerry Zezima I have never been a man of many hats, not just because I am afraid I'd get stuck in doorways, but because my head, though empty, is t...
As I was preparing to come to this Benedictine community, I reflected on my first formative leadership experience.
Perhaps it is no accident that a baseball has 108 stitches and a prayer necklace has 108 beads. Baseball does not discriminate and we do not have to believe in the same God to be on the same team. It is a game of courage, strength, and character that can bring grown men to cry.
You're probably familiar with ERA (Earned Run Average). SIERA takes that further, standing for "Skill-Interactive Earned Run Average". It was created to quantify how well a pitcher has truly performed based on, well, their skills. That's ambiguous, so let's wade in a little with a case study.
