Just a heads-up to loyal readers —- I’m stowing the laptop away for several hours to take care of more important business.

Like taking my dad to see the Phillies (and Cliff Lee‘s Citizens Bank Park debut) this afternoon and perhaps to grab a cheesesteak afterward.


So the blog will go quiet for much of the rest of the day. Nearly anything relevant that needs parsed can probably wait until then.
