Eschatology of Baseball: Doctrine of Baseball Season’s End

Could they put a “warning label” on Talk Radio? As someone who spends too much time driving from home to hospitals to schools to church to various places, I also spend too much time listening to Talk Radio. After listening to one conspiracy theory after another from radio geniuses—without a shred of evidence in sight, I finally relented and turned almost exclusively to sports. I now interchange the Rangers baseball games and radio shows that discuss baseball with WRR (Dallas’ Classical music station). By the way, my favorite Ranger’s feature is Eric Nadel’s “A Page from Baseball’s Past.” It is a short entertaining story from baseball history and is utilized principally as a pre-game program before Texas Rangers baseball games are broadcast.

Tomorrow is the end of baseball season and for six long months I will have to be satisfied with listening to classical music—which will not be too hard. Yet as we say good-bye to baseball for 2009, I do want to say that some of the sports talk radio geniuses have suggested that the Rangers dump their manager Ron Washington. For the record, who would have thought that with two games to go that the Rangers would be 14 games over .500%? No person in April in Arlington I think. Wash had gotten his people to “play ball” and this team has a good up-side!

I just hope that the Rangers continue to go in the right direction and the future with Nolan Ryan, et. al. looks pretty appealing.
