A guest post from Jennifer Berney:

When I entered my MFA program in 2003, I hoped I might be a literary success in the making. Though I had only written a handful of short stories, I imagined that a two-year writing program would provide me with the structure I needed to complete a book-length manuscript, and after that I’d have it made. I’d find an agent and land a publishing contract. I might not make the bestseller list right away, but I’d have a steady, respectable career. At the time, this seemed like a reasonable dream.

8/20/14 Look In

Standard —                      


One hundred twenty six games thus far



Doug Fister acquisition from a recently post ASG break ailing DET has caused more of a landscape switch than some would assume. Fister with a line  some may think Is way beyond his means: 2.20 era along side a 74SO/14BB ratio just under 120 Innings; DET David Price which didn’t come without a major Impact to DET prospects sending top draft picks also a single MLB ready arm to St.Petersburg

In contrast to Fister who Washington seemed to of brought In for almost nothing.


Washington clubs starting staff has grown to become a major contender In contention for this October Classic.


–The starting point of this season If someone had tried to or who may conveyed an Image to my own mind that: Jonathan Lucroy, potentially would win NL MVP ? I didn’t know who he was till a few weeks Into April he’s batting over .300 (42- 2B) major Impact behind the dish makes for a huge Impact on the ball club.


–This season thus far and last seem to have transferred MLB back to a pitchers dominate era, not so much as In pitchers throwing surplus Innings / complete games, more so that hitters can’t seem to post as similar seasons as In years past.


St. Louis closer Rosenthal, has struggled during his task leading to teammate Pat Neshek most likely taking over his position, first time all star as a middle bullpen guy Neshek at the young age of thirty three, with already 192 plate appearances faced he’s walked 5 given up 25 hits and struck out 58 earning a earned run average under one.


Blast from  69’ season San Francisco Giants had two starters to throw over twentyfive CG’s  (Perry – Marichal) only 26 total teams In the game then.

MLB teams agendas change on a daily game schedule for countless reasons to name. A great last
six weeks of the regular season Is here. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed reading this somewhat equal to the value of how I enjoyed writing It.

O’s thump NL East best Nats 8/5/14 MLB



O’s 7/14/0   —    Nats 3/12/1


Baltimore Orioles starter Kevin Gausman scuffled an recovered Os bullpen hermetically seals the ball game retiring all nine batters faced; giving Baltimore, three to one beltway series victory.

Different leagues same quest playing In October with playing styles equivilant to match, the Orioles an Nationals are far from lacking exitment an or talent forthcoming a balance of baseballs best teams separated by one beltway  


David Price debuts In NYC: Detroit which seems to have the deepest starting rotation or second deepest (eave that up to the ESPN guys to figure out) Price should have no qualms tossing through NY Yankees decimaded lineup. Late night LA blue Dodgers Kershaw takes on Angels of Anaheim yes the Trout – Kersh matchup Is substaintal enough to take note on, meaningful.


Early October picks 2014


AL East – Baltimore Orioles
AL Central – Detroit Tigers
AL West – Oakland Athletics

Wild Card (2) – LA Angels (One game series) VS CLE Indians — (No not cause of Johnny football or how dare I put him second king LBJ) — to play the best record team In which ever division series that may be.

NL East – Washington Nat’s
NL Central – Brewers Crew
NL West – Dodgers Blue

Wild Card – St. Louis red birds (Of course one game series) take on ATL Braves; no magic this year Buccos wouldn’t be the first time I’ve been buccin wrong.
