TrackNotes: Preaching The Preakness

By Thomas Chambers
Subliminal or spoken there's a Derby hangover, you get so worked up. I admit I feel it too; we got another game in two weeks. But for me, just how good is the Derby winner? That is a really fun question. Don't ever think Triple Crown, that's greedy. Prices, a new mix of horses, a track they'll never see again, just two weeks from the last race. Sounds like a tasty racing cocktail to me.

By Jim Coffman
The tanking years had driven me away, and I never regained my drive to attend games in person and give my money to the billionaire, conservative owners.

Rebuilding And Racists

By Roger Wallenstein
The nights will be cold. The crowds will be sparse. Spending $9.75 for a Modelo Especial is excessive. The drama won't come from the fans. No, it will be all about whether this ballclub can maintain respectability as the rebuild continues. Just the way it should be.

TrackNotes: No Gambling!

By Thomas Chambers
These days, baseball games are taken out of the hands of the best pitchers and players, making handicapping impossible. Football is an inhuman, militaristic industry and not a game or a sport, civilian casualties be damned. And basketball is too painful to watch even with a wager down. But we do have Thoroughbred horse racing.
