The Prince of New York’s 2008 Baseball Guide
Thanks to Michael at Some Ballyard for plugging it. I went to Amazon and ordered one for the MLB office here. As Michael noted, "The book is a small price to pay to encourage a fine independent sportswriter and allow him to ply his trade."
Elsewhere around the Sphere:
FANS ON THE FIELD is the latest at this moment to be excerpted/featured at the bottom of the new MLB.com homepage. Reminder to feel free to leave a comment here with a roughly 15-to-20-word excerpt from within your MLBlog to be considered for that daily change. . . . Welcome to our newest player blogger, Opening Day starter Joe Blanton of the A’s. Gotta give props to my colleague Mychael Urban, our A’s beat writer, for coming up with the suggestion of "Big Joe’s Bluegrass Blog." Blanton loved it and we look forward to his posts; he won’t be happy that Kentucky just got booted from the first round of the Big Dance for the first time since the Pleistocene. . . . Another good new Yankee blog here.
