Here's the thing. I'm watching one of these shows on the Cooking Channel featuring food trucks. There's a Scottish expat making fish and chips; in a thick brogue he somewhat wearily explains his irritation with Americans who habitually order a side of tartar sauce: "tartar sauce is basically gherkins." That's this blog. I claim no particular insight, no revelation. If you enjoy the flavor, great, but this blog is basically gherkins.

A Hundred Games to Go.

My ballot at 40 games is here.

We're 60 games in, meaning the Giants have now played 60 games.  Here's the ballot.  I won't maneuver it to pick a rep for every team and I won't bother to look up how many roster spots each league is using this year (my guess, a million three) until the 80 game post.
