R.I.P. Carlos Silva, the quiet passenger

Sad news. Carlos Silva, the silent presence during every Yankee radio broadcast, has died of cancer at age 50.Silva produced the games, and from the teasing way that John and Suzyn spoke about him and to him, it was clear that he was part of a closely knit family.I saw a picture of him today. He looked nothing like I envisoned. For some reason - my own hangups, probably - I pictured...

Complete Game, Interrupted

Similar to my post earlier in the summer on what a beautifully morbid season Cliff Lee was having, I tend to have a fascination with the way baseball sometimes refuses to be fair.

After checking my mail obsessively over the next four months, I got...

One big community and its incredible togetherness

I wanted to say a few words about what happened to Fabrice Muamba and the way people have reacted. The way it's made us think and all of that. But I didn't quite know what to say.
