Shields, Brooks on L.A. Times Soldier Photos, Jamie Moyer, Fenway at 100

In this week's Doubleheader, syndicated columnist Mark Shields and New York Times columnist David Brooks tackled whether the Los Angeles Times ought to have published the two-year-old photos of soldiers in Afghanistan posing with the bodies of a suicide bomber and another insurgent. Here is the LA Times' defense of its decision to share the images with the world. We also have an extended boys of summer discussion on baseball. Two stories specifically caught our attention -- both historical moments: the Colorado Rockies' Jamie Moyer became the oldest pitcher in history to win a major league game. Six players on his team were not even born when Moyer started playing pro ball. Pretty amazing. Also amazing is the fact that famed Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, turned 100 years old on Friday. Both Mark and David shared some Fenway memories. You might even notice a 4/20 reference of sorts by David. Have a great weekend.
