Cordero is out for the year

Late yesterday it was announced that Nationals' closer Chad Cordero has a torn labrum, and will be out for the rest of the 2008 season. See Coming on top of news that Nick Johnson will miss the rest of the season, and the uncertain prospects for the return of Ryan Zimmerman, Austin Kearns, Shawn Hill, and (most recently) Lastings Milledge, this is really adding injury to insult to injury. (Reserve players Ryan Wagner and Johnny Estrada are also on the DL.) Fortunately, Jon Rauch has performed very well in his role as substitute closer, for the most part. (Last night's 6 - 5 loss to the Marlins was an exception.) If you want to know what a torn labrum is, see the University of Michigan Health System.

Yankee Stadium fixup

Yankee Stadium I have tweaked the Yankee Stadium diagrams, rendering the concourse area more accurately than before, and adding a few touchups. This was prompted by a recent tip from Josh Geiswite. Coincidentally, I also had some inquiries on "The Bronx Basilica" from Joe Johnston and Rob Stevens. If you would like to offer your thoughts about particular stadiums to the general public, feel free to use the "Impressions" feedback feature on the page in question.

Also, I have refurbished and updated the Artificial Turf, On-speculation stadiums and Anomalous stadiums pages.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
