This is the biggest sporting event that the nation’s capital has been a part of since Super Bowl XXVI, played twenty-seven years ago. This is the biggest baseball game the nation’s capital has been a part of since Game 7 of the…

There are very few times in your life where you can legitimately say that everything you have ever worked for has come down to one moment: right here, right now, what are you going to do going forward?

Yet another Dodgers season has come and gone. Like clockwork, they’ve been eliminated from the postseason in embarrassing fashion after an amazing regular season. Playoff Clayton Kershaw. Bullpen collapses. Vanishing offense. Head-scratching managerial moves. The 2019 NLDS had it all. I don’t know how to explain any of it besides the simple fact that the…

Tyler Skaggs, starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels, died on Monday, July 1. He was 27. This news hit me like a blow. Not again, I thought. Active major leaguers have passed away too often in recent years. Especially for the Angels, who lost 22-year-old Nick Adenhart a decade ago to a car accident,…
