Still trying to catch up. Hopefully, I'll have a short night of homework sometime this week and I can post a bunch of links. Anyways, here's a bunch of more recent links (I'll save the still-relevant ones from earlier this week for later).
First, since I promised it to ferret:
I'm guilty of several of these offenses. Good reminder that it's not the end-all stat.
And now, some fielding fun:
Try to avoid puking.
And guess who's projected as the worst CF?
Web Gems counting, for giggles.
Kinda old, but it still applies; it's not like he's signed somewhere yet.
After the jump, money, plans, and the minor leaguers.
Depends if Theo really is planning to go up to the CBT, but even then, the majority of the budget has been eaten up.
Red Sox fans should be asking what the hell is going on? Lord knows Im baffled.
Just thought I'd sum up this link for y'all.
Someone with an education in intellectual property, can you tell me if acronyms are considered the same as the words they represent? Not completely related, just wondering if "MFY Suck" would count, when the MFY finally do this.
Very well run club, and now that they have a good GM, the team should start catching up to the fans.
Dusty got him to attend the Atheletes' Performance Institute. I'd imagine a short, angry man doesn't have that much trouble convincing people do things.
This idea sounds amazing now - but how much would it cost? It would push Vic to the bench on his off-days, but I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing.
An agent has taken to the web to get his client signed; had to happen eventually. Now if someone would just publish the entire copy of one of Boras' small novels, we'd be entertained for weeks.
Damn, I thought Mirabelli had it locked up.
And he'll only be on the team for one year next decade. That's going to be an emotional year for Timmeh, now that he's made it clear it will be his last. (Although I'd laugh if he manages to get the record this season by some crazy twist.)
Most people remember Bowden's short-lived stint with the Red Sox in 2009 by his performances against the Yankees, which included the good, the bad and the ugly. But no one's ability and talent should be judged on just three outings, even if they were against the world champions.
Nothing groundbreaking, but a good look from outside OTM. Same goes for these two links:
Interesting take on Kott's defense.
