I somehow only realized three days ago that the 2014 MLB season was in the final week. I had a lot of catching up to do.
I popped open the MLB At Bat on my phone. Ya, there are the Nationals, Angels, and Orioles having clinched divisions. I was pretty much aware of that.
But wait, the Athletics were the #1 Wild Card team in the American League? I thought they had gone in the toilet? I had no clue that they were still a playoff team.
And in the National League, I was very clueless about the San Francisco Giants. I thought they were terrible, but there they were as the #2 Wild Card team.
I’ve missed a lot.
Oh, and the blog was shut down. I was unable to make new posts. After three days of trying to contact WordPress support, I found it was because they have a limit on the number of post-dated posts you can have. I had gotten up to 100 blog posts “in the can” for this site, and that’s when they apparently shut you down.
So, I’m going to have to do some things a little differently now.
Back to 1984!
One week removed from our post on the ’84 All-Star Game, here’s New York Yankees 1B Don Mattingly reflecting on his favorite All-Star memory.
