David Price and Clayton Kershaw Are the Great Mysteries of October Baseball

Today 19:07 GMT

In the alternate universe known as the regular season, Clayton Kershaw and David Price are among the best pitchers of their generation.

Whether Kershaw and Price have any mental tendencies that work against them is impossible to know for sure, but the recurring nature of their playoff woes makes them harder to dismiss as happenstance.

Baseball’s Ugly Sweatshirt Crisis

Today 18:12 GMT

Never mind that you’ll look completely ridiculous walking around in a DO DAMAGE sweatshirt by the first week of November, and maybe sooner.

By now, I hope Journal readers agree I’m a reasonably even-tempered fellow—prone to occasionally baseless emotions about the Wisconsin Badgers, but other than that, a fairly civilized guy. You know I don’t serve those brainless hot takes they yell at you during every hour on sports TV and radio.

The good and the bad of Tim Berners-Lee’s new project on data privacy

Monday 19:07 GMT

Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, is trying to figure out how to keep your private information from advertisers’ prying eyes.

It’s a great idea that is necessary in a world where data breaches happen every day — the recent Facebook FB, +0.25% fiasco where 50 million users lost their personal data to hackers (again!) is just the latest example. Individuals certainly need to reclaim ownership of their data from mega corporations that not only abuse their data, but also easily fall prey to hacker attacks.
