I have been asked this question over and over again. I thought I would try to answer it. There are a couple of things stopping me from blogging. The first is time. I do not seem to have any extra. From arbitrating or mediating almost every day to running a small business to being an active...
I am indebted to http://www.baseballmusings.com/ for bringing the following to my attention. I expect that there is (or should be) a good book out there all about the arbitrators in baseball history.Former baseball arbitrator Thomas Roberts died due to age-related complications last Wednesday....

I constantly am meeting new people who know something about me already because they have visitied the blog (and often they have something to say about what I have written (and occasionally...

Been gone for awhile. I have been avoiding typing because of an ongoing soreness in my right arm - caused by typing but last night I was at TFK and a number of people complained that I have not been blogging so I have decided this morning - to put it in a sports cliche - to suck it up and to get...
