Road to the World Series 2017

Another long MLB season has come to an end. All 162 regular season games have been played. And a of this writing, just 10 remain with a chance to take home a World Series championship. Two-thirds of the league’s teams have packed it in and headed home for a long winter of wondering what might have been and awaiting the arrival of next spring and the ever-present hope that that season brings.

Once again, spring has sprung. Regardless of what the weather outside brings, there's no escaping the fact that we're just days away from the beginnings of another baseball season. Spring training is almost at an end. The crack of the bat and the smack of the mitt will soon surround us.

Phish: focused ferocious fun on Chicago 94'

Following the release of last year's seven-disc box set 'Hampton/Winston-Salem '97,' which captured a pivotal funky moment in the evolution of Phish, another thematic archival release has arrived in the form of 'Chicago 94' (JEMP Records), featuring two stellar Phish performances recorded six months apart at Chicago's UIC Pavilion.

1994 was probably the busiest year Phish has ever seen. In March, Elektra Records released the band's fifth studio album, 'Hoist,' a record that helped Phish reach a wider audience with songs like 'Down with Disease,' 'Wolfman's Brother' and 'Sample In A Jar.' As drummer John Fishman told Richard Gehr in 'The Phish Book,' 'Both we and Elektra wanted to have something on the radio, so we tried to write a hit single. But we never committed ourselves to it totally.'

An open letter to Theo Epstein

Dear Mr. Epstein,

I've been a Red Sox fan for a pretty long time. I first started really following the Red Sox at the tail end of the 1986 season. I had just started the fifth grade and the Sox were making their memorable run to the World Series. So my fandom was born in heartbreak. From day one, I understood that being a Red Sox fan meant being disappointed. It meant understanding that it wasn't a matter of if the Sox would blow it, but rather when.

And then you came along, Mr. Epstein. You came along and changed what it meant to be a Sox fan. You and yours took a team that hadn't won a championship in eight decades and landed two rings in a span of four years. You were only in the driver's seat for nine seasons, but in that time, you completely changed the perception of the Boston Red Sox organization.
