My new post at NotGraphs is about the Diablos Rojos and their now ex-ballpark Foro Sol.
This week’s post for NotGraphs is a short story called “October 27, 2011″ set during game 6 of the Cardinals-Rangers World Series. http://www.fangraphs.com/not/october-27-2011
Forgot to mention these things I did for NotGraphs, coz I iz dumm:
This, we recently found out, will be the last season that Diablos Rojos will play at Foro Sol. It’s a crappy stadium. It’s ugly and way too big, but, sentimentally, it’s kinda been a second home since I’ve been in Mexico. Next season they’ll play *somewhere* in the city, and there’ll be a brand new stadium in 2016. But for now, it’s nice to take photos and do drawings of the old place.

My new post for NotGraphs is about having a shy bladder and an imagined double play. http://www.fangraphs.com/not/6-4-3/
I love Dodger Stadium. I’ve only ever been there once, but it’s so beautiful. The above drawing is done with the iPad app, Adobe Ideas. You can see it bigger, and the ink drawing it is based on, here.
My new thing at NotGraphs is paintings of the eighteen major league ballparks I have visited:
Don’t let the title of this blog post put you off, non-baseball lovers.
I wrote a post for top baseball site NotGraphs about this very subject, but, between you and me, *stage whisper* it’s hardly about baseball at all. It’s most about being in a different city. Travel writing, I guess.
Here’s an infographic about when in the calendar year each of the World Cups has taken place.
Probs won’t mean owt to you if you don’t follow baseball and other American sports, but here’s an animated GIF I did for NotGraphs called “Summer 2014″
