The [Wednesday] Papers

On top of everything else that happened at Wrigley Field last night, Fernando Rodney fired the arrow:


I don't know why MLB video lately leaves a big block of white space beneath it, but I spent more time than I wanted to this morning trying to solve it, so we'll just have to live with the ugly.

"Talent wins out above all else. And by series end, the Cubs just had more of it than the Cardinals - even if a lot of their key contributors, by baseball's standards, are still wearing diapers," Jonah Keri writes for Grantland

Wow, check out this report from Cleveland on Byrd-Bennett. MUST-SEE.

Embedded tweets with images also creating white space. Twitter did recently alter their embed code, though I was able to instigate a solution from them for how it fucked up past embedded tweets by breaking our pages, but geez . . . I realize we aren't likely using the best tech elements in our design - or at least, certainly not the latest - but still! Our CMS is up-to-date!

We've never had proper tech help here, which isn't to say those who have aided us over the years aren't highly appreciated. But if we had someone who could really dig in, there's a lot we'd like to do, in terms of upgrades, basic maintenance, and innovative creative ideas - that are probably pretty basic in tech terms - that would be super cool. Just sayin' - I have a long list for anyone who wants to jump in and do some awesome things together.
