The Cleveland Indians / Mad Men Timeline: 1960-70

In his famous pitch to Kodak back in Mad Men’s first season, the stoically charismatic Don Draper describes nostalgia as “a twinge in the heart, far more powerful than memory alone.” Not unlike a carousel projector, sports can help crystallize those otherwise distant recollections of the past as well—giving us context and a “feel” for the way things were; even if we weren’t...

Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz, and Craig Biggio: a few personal thoughts

I don’t really have much time at all for Hall of Fame outrage these days and I don’t want to spend much time spilling digital ink over whether or not PED users belong in the Hall of Fame or not, because I feel like I’ve done that a million times and I’m as tired of writing it as you are of reading it.
