Baseball: Doug Glanville, the writer?

Nothing is more boring than listening to someone talk about her fantasy baseball team. So I'll spare you.

But I will direct you to an occasional series of New York Times columns by former big-leaguer Doug Glanville. He's smart, articulate and literate.

"The problem with being pre-ordained" is a case in point. It's about the collapse of the Cubbies in 2003. High hopes, shattered dreams, and all. But read it, and try to convince me that it isn't an allegory for Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential bid!

And "Lovers not fighters", well, you'll never look at a baseball brawl in quite the same way again.

I look forward to seeing what Glanville comes up with next.
