Everybody knows the Boston Red Sox boast three World Series rings in ten years, the oldest ballpark in the majors, and the most rabid fan base in organized baseball. Who knew they also had a poet laureate?

There's No Predicting This World Series

The World Series between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants features two teams that were pretty good in the regular season but have been played either excellent (the Giants) or almost flawless (the Royals) baseball during the postseason.

With all the hoopla around Tom Watson and his captaincy of the Ryder Cup, perhaps the focus should be on Nancy Lopez and her winning formula in the Handa Cup. Team U.S. defeated the World team, 28-20 in West Point, Mississippi the exact same weekend.

Pedro Martinez Shows Solidarity With a Young Pitcher

Ventura is a very good young pitcher who was a member of the Royals rotation all year where he posted a very respectable 3.20 ERA and a 14-10 record. Bringing him in to pitch in an unfamiliar situation like on only two days rest seemed especially strange and almost cruel to the young pitcher.

Any solution for destroying ISIS that fails to address the Sunni and Shia rivalry simply will not work. Bombs and arming rebel groups in Syria don't alleviate ethnic tensions; such actions might actually stir up more instability and fuel more sectarian violence.

Derek Jeter's Endless Farewell Tour

The overstatement of Jeter's intangible contributions, efforts to make him into a paragon of integrity and honor when he is essentially a great ballplayer who managed to stay out of trouble and not say anything stupid to the media in 20 years, all make it increasingly difficult to either like Jeter or take his farewell tour seriously.

OK... OK. You may not view a team that is 81-63 as "imploding," but hear me out.

A West Coast Post-Season

An all-West Coast World Series, a distinct possibility at this point, would present an image of baseball that is young, new and forward-looking, despite the inconvenient time zone for many in the East Coast.

Survey the excited crowd of a Red Sox home game and you'll see a lot of red, a lot of navy blue, a lot of white. You'll also inevitably run into a dash of pink. Consider what you are now thinking about the individual wearing that pink hat.

I have been out of the country for less than three weeks and it is mid-summer when not much happens of note. The first thing I confronted on returning was a total reorganization of the local supermarket. Under the influence of jet lag I found this quite disorienting.
