Today will be the last day for a long time in which the first post of the day will be “Today at THT.” Why? ShysterBall readers who date back before last October know why: the return of “And That Happened,” this blog’s quaint little daily recap feature. It resumes with the ballgames come Monday morning. Well, there will be one recap on Monday because there’s only one game on Sunday, but you get the idea. Tuesday will really be hopping.
For those of you unfamiliar with ATH, here are a couple of examples. It started as a way for me to make sure that I kept track of actual baseball rather than get too bogged down in steroids or stadiums or what have you, but it quickly became my favorite part of this blog after it got going last April. For me it’s like the baseball season in blog form: sometimes it’s good, sometimes it sucks, sometimes it rains, but it’s there every day reminding you that while no single game matters, all of them together mean everything.
But that’s Monday, probably at around 5:45 AM. Today at THT:
Only two more baseball-free days to go.
