The More Things Change

An overwhelming burden of various commitments over the last twelve months has unfortunately left me with little time to update this blog. Many are now clearing up, so I hope to both increase and improve my contributions.

I may have spared myself some time and unnecessary web space. A quick look at today’s standings would show that despite recent and relentless hemming and hawing by the media, MLB’s divisions are lead by the usual group of suspects.

Teams including the Rangers, Red Sox, Yankees, Tigers, Braves, Giants, and Cardinals comfortably rest in their familiar leadership roles. The Angels, Blue Jays, and Dodgers maintain mediocrity, and surely regret the high expectations set by the media attention they received during Winter. The Yankees have benefited from the contributions of aging former stars. The mostly unknown and underrated A’s find a way to win.

I could go on and on, but I think I’m ready to pick up where I left off.
