- The Mariners sucked
- There weren't pennant races until the last week of the season (but how awesome were they once they showed up?)
- My job ramped up again with the start of the school year, meaning lots of training at the start of the month
- My job is also strongly tied to Tacoma Public Schools, so the teacher strike threw off my schedule pretty good for a good chunk of the month after training
- I've been working on some bigger posts, which will come out in October
With my apology and explanation out of the way, back to baseball. It's been a crazy week, and with the playoffs here, the craziness may not stop (though I think we've already seen the most dramatic action we'll get). Even with all the drama on the field, the most inexplicable news to me came out this morning, when Terry Francona and the Boston Red Sox split ways.
