Writing! That describes the baseball we are being subjected to....

Eighteen innings, zero runs
Masochists, this stuff is all for you.

In the last two games, Washington has played four hours, 18 minutes of baseball. During that time, they've produced the following totals:

000 000 000 - 0
000 000 000 - 0

I was thinking about putting that in the paper, but thought better of it. The visual is just too dizzying; presented in the space of a newspaper column, readers would probably view it as some printing error -- some sort of layout code that got jumbled in with the text.

This is the stuff that made Drysdale and Hersheiser great....every 4th DAY!!!
