• Ah, the beautiful unpredictability of the game. It's not just that the Dominicans lost to the Dutch. It's that in almost every meaningful way, the Dominicans played better than the Dutch, out-hitting them 15-8 and out-walking them 15-3. Granted, the Dominicans did make six errors in the two games -- errors led directly to both losses -- but do you know how hard it is to lose two games while nearly tripling your opponents' hits and walks?
• Newsday's Ken Davidoff takes down the A-Rod naysayers. Utterly devastating.
• I think this Jonah Keri kid might have a real future in this business.
• So what do you think about Topps' new 3-D baseball cards? I think it's a cool idea, but probably just a way station to something really cool.
