The 2016 World Series

After doing really well predicting the Wild-Card Games (2-0) but not so well with the League Division Series (1-3), I’m back to my undefeated ways in the two League Championship Series! Let’s recap:   ALCS Blue Jays-Indians: Got the winning team correct, but not the number of games. I really expected that the potent Toronto […]

The 2016 MLB League Championship Series

A couple weeks ago, I ranked the ten MLB playoff teams this season. I also made predictions about who’d win. Well, the Wild-Card games and the four League Division Series are over, so let’s see how they (and I) did before looking ahead to the two League Championship Series. AL Wild Card Game: Toronto was […]

My Top 10 2016 MLB Playoff Teams

I did this last October, and I can now officially make it an annual tradition. Ten MLB teams make the playoffs, and that leads itself nicely to a Top 10 list. I would have posted this yesterday—on the first of the month like my previous top 10 lists—but not all playoff spots were locked up. […]

Assessing My Pre-Season MLB Predictions

Here we are, smack-dab in the middle of August, in the heat of the Major League Baseball playoff hunt. Back on April 3, I made my predictions for which teams would make it to the post-season. With only about a month and a half to go, there are some teams clearly out of the race, […]

My Top 10 Baseball Movies

It’s summertime! The weather is getting warm here in New England, and the Red Sox are playing well (after two abysmal seasons). That’s right, I’ve got baseball fever, so this month’s Top 10 List is devoted to baseball movies. Whether you think I strike out or hit a home run with this batting order doesn’t […]

My 2016 Major League Baseball predictions

You know, it’s been some time since I’ve posted something other than a book review, author feature, or a Top 10 list. I’m soon going to have some news about my own writing, but this is not that post. The 2016 Major League Baseball season starts today, and I figured it was a good time […]

The 2015 World Series

After doing so well in the Wild-Card Games (1-1) and the League Division Series (3-1), I didn’t do so well predicting who’d win the two League Championship Series: I thought the Blue Jays would defeat the Royals in seven games (Royals won in six), and I was throwing all my support at the Cubs in […]

The 2015 MLB League Championship Series

A couple weeks ago, I ranked the ten MLB playoff teams this season. I also made predictions about who’d win. Well, the Wild-Card games and the four League Division Series are over, so let’s see how they (and I) did before looking ahead to the two League Championship Series. AL Wild Card Game: I predicted […]

My Top 10 2015 MLB Playoff Teams

I love baseball, and here comes the 2015 Postseason. I would have posted this on the first of the month like my previous top 10 lists, but not all playoff spots were locked up. It went down to the final day in the AL West and second Wild Card races. The ten teams in the […]

A Dream of Fields 11: The Seattle Mariners

11Mariners

Sadly, this is the last ballpark in my series. It’s the last home team I’ve seen, and if you look at the date below, you’ll see that I’m long overdue to go somewhere with a ballpark. Washington, D.C. isn’t too far away, and I’d love to go to Toronto. Someday… But I can say that […]
