The Platoon Advantage
Fixing the Worst Days of the Baseball Season
I got back into town last night just before the first pitch of the All-Star Game, after spending a week at a cabin in the Internetless north woods of these United States. As such, my last seven days has been much more of this:
I am thus feeling very disconnected from the game I love, and completely out of the normal routine that baseball fans fall into of watching or listening to games every night on TV, radio, or the computer. Watching and following a team through the long season is dependent on these routines, and mine are way out of whack.
Thankfully, baseball has seen fit to throw me a bone, tossing the midseason break onto the tail end of my vacation to lessen the amount of baseball I would have otherwise missed. In fact, it turns out I could have taken a couple extra days and not really missed anything worth watching.
