R.A Dickey signing his books Apr-20 at the John/Richmond Chapters-Indigo

+
You'll have to scroll down a little on the "Indigo List of Events", as there's no specific link to the event itself I say "If you got the book (or will be getting it), and on your way to the Rogers Center to watch a game on April 20th, what's a little standing in line, anyway?"

A Different View (from a different time) - What Starfish has to do with .400 hitters?

Now, this piece is not that recent - the collection (The Flamingo's Smile) was published at 1985. And, yes the stat that it deals with is BA, which some consider a rather flawed stat. And, yes. it's quite long, and the format is annoyin'... HOWEVER, the general argument is as relevant now as it was then. And, while not being smart enough to be a stats geek, I always find Gould to be a great read. Oh, and I almost forgot - Gould is a paleontologist - Baseball is just a hobby for him.

Dwarfing Jon Rauch?

I'm already pulling for this guy. An intelectual ball player... now, that's a novelty... we should have tried and get him from the Angels in the Vernon trade. Just imagine him and Rauch on the same team... refreshing quote: Money is something else most people consider essential but Van Mil doesn’t. When he breaks into the majors – Angels coaches say a midseason call-up is a realistic goal – he’ll be paid the major league minimum of $410,000. "It’s a Dutch way of thinking," he said. "I don’t need $400,000 a year; $200,000 would be good. And I don’t mind paying more in taxes. I can still live a very good life."

The Richard Griffin Poll

As the Griff seem to have been the center of attention around here lately, I thought we should clarify the air issue a bit. So here's a poll. As simple as that.

the Yankees have reportedly signed former Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon.

In the event that Pujols doesn't re-sign, Stark names the Rangers, Nationals, Orioles, Blue Jays, Angels, Mets, and Dodgers as possible free agency suitors. He also cautions not to count the Red Sox and Yankees out, even though they have Adrian Gonzalez and Mark Teixeira, respectively. But none of these teams should get their hopes up just yet

the AA aproach

Check out Mike Wilner's report on what AA had to say re: those winter meetings. A great read that should set some too-anxious debates to rest.

Do we need a "Latino Nanny"?

I commented about it elsewhere, but I figured that in order to stop that degeneration of the discussion, I'd better have a post dedicated to the issue.I'll start by commenting that I'm a foreigner...

Jeff Blair, Do Shut Up!

I won't start here a list of grievances, but that Jeff Blair guy is getting on my nerves recently. I'll just provide you with the latest specimen, and invite you to provide more. For some obscure...

Recommended Booing (yes, yes.. and cheering...) Policy

From my experience at booing (and a bit of cheering), I've arrived at one major conclusion: If there's a clear booing/cheering policy, and the crowd boos in unison, it has a much greater effect....

Bloggers! Unite! We should change this game!

I heard Richard Griffin today on Fan590. To my horror, I found myself agreeing to most of what he had to say. More after the jump
