When you don't live in or around Boston sometimes you miss the sounds bouncing back and forth in the echo chamber that is local media. Nobody is talking about Clay Buchholz attending a charity event at my parents house in Virginia, but apparently it's a thing up in Boston. Why? I have no idea. Neither does the excellent Dustin Parkes, but then he doesn't live in Boston either. (Dustin Parkes; The Score)

One time shortly after moving to Philadelphia I made a trip to Lehigh and 21st Street in Philadelphia. There's only a church on the grounds now, so why did I go there? Because that was where Shibe Park used to stand. Richard Barbieri did the same thing in Brooklyn, going to the site where Ebbets Field once stood, only he had the good sense to write about it. (Richard Barbieri; The Hardball Times)

When you get right down to it, Kevin Youkilis did one thing as well as anyone in baseball: he didn't make outs. (Joe Posnanski; Joe Blog)

You mean someone misunderstood the book Moneyball? I find that hard to believe. (The Common Man; The Platoon Advantage)
