The [Indians-Yankees game] has used up words; they have weakened, they have deteriorated –Henry James, 1915 OK.  Henry James was talking about World War I, not the Indians game last night.  You caught me. But seriously.  What words can I use to talk about the “game” that took place last night?  Ridonkulous?  Shammockery?  Out-freaking-rageous? Some

Hating the Game

Don’t hate the player.  Hate the game.  No, I am not going to talk about urban slang from the 1990’s.  Then again, the message of that statement is so true.  It certainly describes my current feelings about the game of baseball which have been changing and shifting since the Indians traded Victor Martinez to Boston.

Yankees Lower Seat Prices, Dan Gilbert Laughs

The Yankees are learning what Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert already knew.  In order to maximize profits from ticket sales, you don’t want to give up all those proceeds that occur on Stubhub, Ebay and Craigslist.  So the Yankees decided when they opened their new ballpark, that they would outsmart the scalpers and just raise
