The avant-garde film movement is no stranger to meditations on suicide, depression, and obsession. One has only to think of Deren, Brahkage, and Anger, to connect the dots. Drugs and altered states of consciousness, once part of the underground culture are now the province of the major pharmaceutical companies. In discussing Stan Brakhage's film Anticipation of the Night, the astute Ken Kelman identifies the film as a "mental process." The film, after all, is a meditation on suicide.

This cosmic game, however, indicates that the large globalized drug manufacturers have indeed co-opted the small intriguing creative souls when it comes to discussions about depression, suicide, melancholy. The remarkable 17th century cleric Robert Burton has told us that it was his creative passion that soothed his discomforting and disquieting mental problems. Chemical compounds such as the benzodiazepines abate the fires and quell the sparks. This may not be the right course of action for the creative person.

Most of the runs in this game were sloppy...the result of errors. Ernie Gehr, Nardil and Zoloft all committed infield errors that resulted in runs. Mention should be made of Prozac who pitched a superb complete game that included eight strikeouts.
