Letter from the Interim Managing Editor: Sorry again about the lack of content last week, folks. Was a difficult week for me to keep updated, what with being camping Thursday through Sunday. Of course, huge news (Altuve’s extension, covered aptly by Clack here) breaks while I’m on a rare vacation. Back now, however, and ready to get back to work. Thanks for hanging in there. Tell your friends: We’re back. - Marbach
