Yup, it's time for the Fall Classic. I'm taking part in a symposium at Culture11. My first contribution, in which I out myself as a temporary Tampa Bay Rays fan, is here. Why Tampa? Largely, as I say in the wee piece, because I enjoy Philadelphia's beery opera buffa and do not much fancy that being corrupted by victory. Happily Michael Brendan Dougherty and Tim Carney are around to talk, like, about actual baseball.
