Sometimes people write better than us. Each Tuesday and Thursday (except when we forget) WoW gives you our favorite baseball links we've come across.
- ESPN.com contributor and all-around good guy Jonah Keri gives us his 100 story lines to keep abreast of during the 2008 season. Number 84 is spot-on: "The Royals will be really interesting." Indeed!
- The Orioles set an attendance record last night. Oh, the glories of ineptitude have been visited upon the Charm City, and the fans respond with fervor. Fervor for not showing up, that is.
- Retired history teacher Bob Rittner defends the DH at Baseball Analysts. I disagree with his thesis but I respect the arguments he presents. Frank Thomas doesn't know it, but he loves Bob Rittner.
- Alex Ferreyra drafts a fantasy team consisting entirely of Latino ballplayers over at Machochip, and he has some help from an unlikely but brilliant and charming source. I still don't understand why he broke his own rules to take Justin freakin' Morneau. Yes, I am an unabashed Derek Jeter fan who still feels the burn of 2006.
