    jshaw: And it is received in that spirit. Plus, I agree, it took me a little while to feel that I'm "getting" the characters, particularly Jack, and the ways in which he isn't Charlie. If I was revising these instead of basically posting as is, I'd be going back to the first twenty or so and making some changes. But his baseball strategy is Charlie's is mine, so that (as you'll see today) isn't likely to change. Hopefully you (and I say you because I kind of suspect that you're the only one...

    October, 2021 Emma left the conference room, her lips pursed in frustration. The meeting had gone far longer than she had expected - and even further longer than it had any reason to go. There was very little that frustrated her more than pointless meetings. Perhaps local news. And people who voluntarily voted away their freedoms. Also those who explained things to her that she already knew. Oh, and people who assumed that because of her looks she couldn't do her job well. People who misused...

    October, 2020 "No!" Mal cried. "Guerreb was the one good thing that fell to us in any of the drafts. You can't!" It was all I could do not to stand up and go nose to nose with her. I managed not to, but it was close. "Like hell I can't. I can, and I will." "Just to prove that you're in charge now and not Ray Bernard! Just to prove - " "Stop." I said it quietly. Well, I thought it was quiet. "Mal, I thought we just finished up on how I feel about taking advice. If you would like to...

    October, 2020 "You're going to trade one of them, aren't you?" "If I can," I agreed with Bill. "Why?" asked Adam. He was still whining, but it wasn't quite as bad as before. "Why not just put Mowett as the DH, or move John to left? We don't have anybody there either." "That's quite true. Gustavo Amella in left is terrible, barely a 67/67. But he's popular in New York, and I'm hoping that playing him will help us to fill the seats. That's why Andres Blanco is playing short for us...

    October, 2020 "What a goddam mess." Bill had said those same words at least three times in the past two minutes. Of course he was looking at the rosters. Mal laughed - after all, she'd lived with it longer than Bill and I had. Adam looked as though he wanted to be defensive, but even he couldn't defend this. Frank Scurry looked like he'd found something very interesting on the floor. "No argument there. Let's try something different. How about we look at what we've got that's good?" I...
