Today's links' feelings will be hurt, just a little, if you merely mouse right over them ...
- Dave Cameron and Rory Paap engage in a long conversation about Matt Cain, and of course they still can't resolve this pesky question. I link, you decide.
- There are a couple of things in this story about Rollie Fingers almost signing with Cincinnati that make me a little skeptical. See if you can spot them.
- Internet writer Eno Sarris interviews Internet writer Murray Chass.
- Maybe you're sick of baseball surnacronyms, but The Nationals Review came up with one for nearly every player on the roster, so I really don't have a choice here.
- In these days of cash-strapped local governments, I don't have any idea how they came up with the money to restore (parts of) Cleveland's ancient League Park. Not that I'm complaining.
- Meanwhile, they found some money in Atlantic City, too. And they need it, even if their decrepit stadium is hardly ancient.
- You gotta hand it to MGL: When he's outraged, you know it.
- First, snowball fights and ice skating in hell. Then, this might happen.
- Finally, we wish a fond farewell to Tony Malinosky, who until Tuesday was the oldest living major leaguer. Now that mantel passes to Connie Marrero, who turns 100 in April and last I heard was still enthusiastically greeting visitors making the pilgrimage to his home in Cuba.
