The Baseball Desert

Playoffs. Baseball. Whatever.

There are days when the game takes a back seat, when the rivalry doesn't matter, when the pinstripes are nothing more than a random decoration on a baseball uniform. Today is one of those days.

If you want to indulge is some Yankee-bashing, Surviving Grady is usually a good place to go, but today Denton has just the right words:
Perhaps the rivalry and the things we read in the news everyday have hardened us, making us forget that under the pinstripes he was a husband and a dad. Truly, my thoughts and prayers go out to Cory Lidle's family and friends.
The Baseball Desert echoes those thoughts and prayers.
