    Summary

    After 11 years playing shortstop for the New Jersey Knights, Danny Williams is traded to the Honolulu Warrior Kings, perpetual cellar dwellers of the American League West and the armpit of major league baseball. With a bum knee and a dwindling batting average, Danny knows his career is in its death throes. But as long as he can walk, he's going to play, and hey, at least Gracie still loves him. When All-Star power-hitting second baseman Steve McGarrett shocks the sports world by turning down a lucrative contract with his current team, the Monterey Bay Seals, to return home and play for the Kings, the team his late father helped build, everything suddenly changes. The Kings aren't the losers they used to be and despite Danny's glass knee, the double play combo of Williams-McGarrett keeps making the nightly highlight reels. Better yet, Danny is hitting again.

    Only there's something Danny and Steve aren't telling anyone: They're more than just teammates. Much more. For Danny at least, it's a huge reason for his recent success and anyway, they're not hurting anyone. Besides, it's really no one's business but theirs.

    Too bad it becomes everyone's.

    Summary

    “So, umm,” Sid says into his phone, suddenly nervous.

    “Sid?” Geno’s voice registers surprise.

    “Yeah, umm.” Why is this difficult? “I’m here?”

    Geno laughs. “Back in Pittsburgh?”

    “No.” Sid clears his throat. “I’m-- I’m in the Moscow airport.”

     

    Or:

     

    Sid decides to spend his summer in Russia.

    Summary

    Sid’s expression turns inward for a moment. When he meets Zhenya’s eyes again his face is still bright red, but he looks determined too.

    “Well, I guess I owe you,” he says. “I mean, I got a picture of you this evening. So.”
