Best Of the Blog: #1




So we come to number one. I don't know if this is truly the best thing I've written all year (that's pretty subjective, I'm not even sure I know what it is) but it is certainly one of the best and far-and-away the most widely read blog I've ever written. (And by extension, the mostly widely read thing I've ever written period.) So I hope everyone has a Happy New Year--my personal wish is for continued Yankee sucess of course--and I'll be back to original material. But for now, the best of the blog, from July Twenty-Sixth: Curt Schilling Traded.

Best Of the Blog: #2




Being that this is a "history" blog, I frequently try to keep myself out of it. That's silly, of course, and my sucess rate is probably well below the Mendoza Line, but at least it's a noble goal. And truthfully, even those times when I do intercede--like my fondness for near perfect games or members of the early 1990s New York Yankees--my view is usually just the jumping off point. Every day now-and-then however, I just let "me" go wild and take over for the day. I'm actually quite fond of most of these entries, although I'm not sure I can say the same for my audience. Despite, today we'll damn the torpedos and full speed ahead with a "me" entry, from October Twentieth: Yankees Play at Padres.

Best Of the Blog: #3




I had been toying with the idea of picking out a specifc story from my guest writers to use as a "Best of..." but was couldn't really decide (a) picking one out of out all the entries was really the "right" thing to do and--frankly, more importantly--(b) which one I would actaully pick. Of course, being that I'm a pragmatist at heart, I've come upon a solution. So, from the third week of August: Guest Writers.

Best Of the Blog: #4




This is, I have to confess, another one of those times when the story is really what makes this a "Best Of..." rather than anything special about my writing. That being said, I do think I described this well, and it is a fun topic, a blog I enjoyed writing, even if I did have to fudge the date a little .So here we are, from July Fifth: Mets at Braves Game Ends.

Best Of the Blog: #5




I have to admit, I'm very very fond of this next one. Not only is it one of the times when something I wrote ended up making me look pretty smart--always a plus--but I also like the backstory that goes with it, the little bit on Harry Beck and the Underground map. I picked up that bit of trivia one of my first days in London (when the idea for this blog was just beginning to form) and I stored it with the intent that someday something could be made of it. All-in-all, I'm really quite pleased with the result. So here we are, from April Third: David Eckstein Debuts.

Best Of the Blog: #6




You never quite know what subject will attract people's attention. Some of my blogs that I never thought were anything special have turned out to be the most popular and others I was quite fond of barely drew any notice. That's not to complain of course, I'm sure its like that for all writers. This entry is among my most read and although popular sucees isn't always indicitive of quality, but in this case I think there's some correlation. So here we are, from July Thirtieth: Doc White Faces Washington Senators.

Best Of the Blog: #7




Before getting into the baseball I'd like to wish everyone out there a Merry Christmas and I hope that whatever your faith, you are enjoying today as much as I am. (And trust me, I really am enjoying it, I'm a ten year old at heart when it comes to Christmas Morning.) For Christmas, I wanted to do a story that was funny and nice, something that being cynical the other three hundred and sixty four makes rather difficult. Despite that, I found one so Merry Christmas and here it is, from June Fifth: Tony Clark Changes Number.
