8 July 2014- Eight days since the arrival of free agency- I cannot say for sure that this will ever end. The troops quiver rancorously. Supplies are low. I feel thankful to have learned how to distill my bored tears into potable water during the great work stoppage of '11. Dispatches from the front are bare and serve only to further disillusion:
