5:09 – Sorry gang, but it’s looking like my laptop is none too happy. Will try and take care of it and come back. 5:05 – Nothing much is happening in the game. But the New York Megamillion Jackpot is not over $135 million. Thought you’d like to know. 4:48 – I’m embarrassed. The Mets […]

NOTE: This was an interesting experiment in liveblogging by only using a partially-updated box score and info that could be found on the internets.

As advertised, I am live blogging Game 3 of the 2007 Fall Classic. But first, some preliminaries: 1. This new Fox postseason music. What do we make of it, sportsfans? Frankly, I was looking forward to the old music. It was, you know, sporty. But with the new music, I keep thinking someone on The […]

FYI, Sarah will be live blogging tonight’s game. That means you can look forward to at least three but probably more of the following things: 1.

Will anybody get elected to the Hall of Fame this year?

Last week, we asked you to vote for who you would like to see enshrined in baseball’s Hall of Fame. The verdict? If it were up to UmpBump readers, nobody would make it in. The leading vote getter (so far) is Jeff Bagwell, who has 60% support. Of course, in the real voting, players need […]
