Barely anything today, because of the general lack of baseball activity recently. There are a few new, interesting links out there though:
Coming Soon: Jonathan Papelbon's Dubious Taste In Cinema - Deadspin
Wow, Paps, wow - anyone want to take a shot at predicting the new nicknames he's going to be bestowed with?
Baseball: Highly touted lefty Kikuchi opts for Japan over U.S. - Kyodo News
Darn. The best way to look at this, to me, is to consider that he could develop a little more in Japan - or maybe we avoid a disaster if a major flaw is exposed.
New book details 1912 World Series - redsox.com
The 1912 World Series, an eight-game act, is detailed in Mike Vaccaro's third book, The First Fall Classic: The Red Sox, the Giants and the Cast of Players, Pugs, and Politicos Who Reinvented the World Series in 1912.
Might have to pick this up - sounds like an interesting read.
On a related note, I'm going to spend part of today trying to locate a book I purchased a few years ago that contains loads of Sox moments' anniversaries for each date - blame my being 13 when I last saw this book for not knowing where it is. If I can find it, expect some mini-history stories each day; I'll even try to keep the dates straight.
Comments, links, suggestions on where to look for that book - whatever you feel like sharing, can all be entrusted with us.
