Every so often, someone asks me to name the best thing I’ve ever written. I never know exactly how to answer that — everything I’ve written is sort of tied for best/worst; that’s just how it feels for me. But it is possible that this Vin Scully piece that I wrote in 2010 is the best thing I’ve ever written? Certainly it’s one of the most special pieces I’ve ever written. And it means more to me now than ever.

Well, last week was a real bummer. It was a particular bummer for Mike Schur, who set a new unhappiness record at minus-118 happiness, thanks to a week where all the teams he actually cared about lost. My week was a much tamer minus-12, in part because my daughter Katie and I invested a lot of our happiness in the Chicago Bears-Houston Texans game, and the Bears won that one on the last play of the game.

» The Triple Dud
2022/09/22 14:51 from JoeBlogs
Thanks to Brilliant Reader Brad for pointing this out: A lot of people are focusing on a couple of triple crown chases going on: In the American League, Aaron Judge currently leads the league in batting average (.317), home runs (60) and RBIs (128). He has clearly locked up the home run title (second is Yordan Alvarez with 37) and his RBI lead of 13 over Jose Ramirez makes him pretty much uncatchable. The only leg of the Triple Crown still in play is batting average — Xander Bogaerts and Luis Arraez are both well within striking range. Of course, it should be added that everybody knows the flaws of batting average these days, and Judge’s .419 on-base percentage is way ahead of everyone else’s.
