The dominance of the blogosphere as represented by a few links.
Between the Lines has a rather funny take on the D-Rays manager in “Joe Maddon, Tactical Genius“. Reminds me of the old SNL bit with Dan Aykroyd, “Fred Garvin, Male Prostitute”.
The world famous Awful Announcing is hosting an NFL Pick ‘Em contest. Winner scores an iPhone!
I’ve harped on plate discipline on this blog, not just drawing walks but getting ahead in the count to get a strike to hit. The Hardball Times has the data on this topic as well as some players that swing at bad balls (Alfonso Soriano–go figure!) and the good ones.
I’m Writing Sports has the top 25 MLB players 25 & under. Miguel Cabrera is only 24? Seems he’s been around forever.
Bugs and Cranks has a few tips on what to wear with to the ballpark. They say to Cubs fans–enough with the Nomar. I say the worst is the Cards fans still wearing McGwire jerseys–post-retirement & post-wimpy, teary congress wuss session. I’m sure they’ll all be ponying up for their Rick Ankiel jerseys now…or looking in the attic for the ones they stuffed away.
