I've written three articles for The Faster Times over the previous 18 hours. Please check them out:
* The Texas Rangers haven't had a great history, but they've never come close to choking a playoff series -- until now. My thoughts on what's happened so far in their series are in "Will the Texas Rangers Be the Latest Dallas Team to Choke?"
* Is Brooks Conrad to blame for Sunday's Atlanta Braves' loss, a game some are comparing in pain to the Leyritz game? Is Bobby Cox? I asked baseball writer -- and Braves fan -- Dan Schlossberg for his thoughts. The piece is called "Brooks Conrad, Bobby Cox, and the Braves’ Heartbreaking Loss."
* I wrote about how Dan Shaughnessy has somehow twisted the Boston Red Sox curse to cover...the Texas Rangers? Check out "Dan Shaughnessy Finds New Target for the Curse of the Bambino: The Texas Rangers."
