FMJRA 2.0: No Joy In The North

— compiled by Wombat-socho What a wretched week this was for the Senators. First we got swept by the Twins, and then lost two out of three at Montreal, where at least we weren’t freezing since this year’s Expos have moved into Olympic Stadium. Next week, we have a three-game series against the Tribe and […]

FMJRA 2.0: Home For Tax Day

— compiled by Wombat-socho This tax season has been odd for a number of reasons: I did not expect to be left in Tonopah for the last couple of weeks of the season instead of being called up to Reno, and I did not expect to be working on the day after the tax filing […]

FMJRA 2.0: A Winning Week

— compiled by Wombat-socho SOTD Much to my surprise, my Senators went to Philadelphia and swept the Phillies, but then went down to Baltimore and lost two of three. Well, 4-2 is better than nothing. Still, we’re tied with the Twins at the bottom of our division with an 11-16 record 7 1/2 games behind […]

FMJRA 2.0: Adrift Somewhere In The Anacostia River

— compiled by Wombat-socho What an awful week this was. The Reds took two out of three at RFK, and then we went to Fenway and lost two out of three to the Red Sox. Most of the games have been close, but a close loss is still a loss. While I’m not quite to […]

FMJRA 2.0: Gloom, Despair, Etc.

— compiled by Wombat-socho SOTD The Senators haven’t had a week this bad since the 1971 season, and I hope we don’t have another one like this soon. First we got swept by the Angels in our home opener, and then we went to New York and lost two out of three to the Hated […]

FMJRA 2.0: Opening Day & Other Disasters

— compiled by Wombat-socho “Ever seen that guy in the street carrying a sign that says THE END IS NEAR? Chances are he’s a PhilliesSenators fan.” – Bill James, THIS TIME LET’S NOT EAT THE BONES, slightly modified Actually, our opening series against Dom’s Royals at KC went well – we won two games in […]

FMJRA 2.0: Play Ball!

— compiled by Wombat-socho The Senators started the 1972 season in Kansas City against the defending AL champion Royals, and took two out of three thanks to our bullpen, which (unlike the Royals) is full of good arms to back up a solid starting rotation. We did lose the middle game thanks to the weather, […]

FMJRA 2.0: The Shame of Life

— compiled by Wombat-socho SOTD Did you know Kid Rock wrote the chorus for this song? If you’ve listened to a lot of his music (and I have) it jumps right out at you, but I guess it was a big surprise for a lot of people. Wonder if he’ll ever do a cover version. […]
