I have to say that I very much enjoy your rundown of the games each week. Your writing it insightful and entertaining, which is a tricky but beautiful combination to behold. I do hope you will continue with it for the entire season and return for many more. The Cafe needs writers like you.
That being said, Michael, please stop using so many commas. I know this seems like a strange, perhaps silly request, but I edit a lot of writing professionally and this small habit you have is an easy mistake to correct. With your level of writing talent I hope you seek additional publication elsewhere and if you do, the commas must go. For this site, where we all chip in for the fun of it, it's not a big deal but I would hate to have it impact your writing on the bigger stage.
Here is a great reference
site if you need it. Again, I am very impressed with your writing and I look forward to your article each week. I hope this feedback hasn't insulted or embarrassed you in anyway. Keep up the good work.
