One fan who is no longer excited about opening day
added 03/16 by James Anderson
There was a time when I looked excitedly toward opening day in baseball. This was a rite that exhilarated me every since I was 11 years old. I will turn 63 this year. There was a time when I would pour over the daily box scores like a research scientists studying his notes on his viral drug cultures in his laboratory. I would follow the top hitters and pitchers and keep charts on what they would have to do the remainder of the season to hit that .330 batting average or reach 40 home runs or win 20 games. I did this because I had such a burning passion for the great American pastime. A game that was a woven part of the fabric of the American culture as the stars on Old Glory. That has all changed.

Cardinals 94, Astros 92, Cubs 90
added 10/04 by Steve Cutchen
A pennant race of the most nerve-wracking kind. It will be best 2 of 3 at St. Louis for the division title. The loser could miss the playoffs. By beating the prediction for the third time in the last four series, St. Louis moves to 2 games over. Houston loses a game to the prediction for the third straight series. And the Cubs match by taking 2 from the Reds. The projection now stands at Cardinals 94, Astros 92, Cubs 90. This Knuckleball presents the update.

Baseball's Place as a Nation Recovers
added 09/20 by Steve Cutchen
In 1918, Baseball was ruled "nonessential" by Secretary of War Newton Baker. Yet a little over a month after Pearl Harbor, FDR said, "It would be best for the country to keep baseball going." After last week's national tragedy, and amidst great ceremony, baseball resumed Monday, contributing in part to the unifying of America. Yes, this Knuckleball looks at the pennant races and the series just past. But it also looks at the history of baseball in times of national crisis.
