linkpunch gorillaSometimes people write better than us. Each Tuesday and Thursday WoW gives you our favorite baseball links we've come across.

  • Doug Glanville reflects on players switching uniform numbers after trades, the "Dirty 30", and Lance "One Dog" Johnson. If that's not enough to get you to read it, then I got nothing for ya. New York Times.

  • Jesse Spector interviews Brad Lidge. The most revealing thing about Brad Lidge? He drives SUVs exclusively. Brad Lidge is a boring man. Touching Base.

  • Bob Timmermann gives us the downlow on catcher's interference. A certain football blogger I know who is running a fantasy baseball league this season included 'catchers interference' as a statistical category. Yes, he's a Reds fan. Baseball Analysts.

  • Lloyd the Barber takes down J.P. Ricciardi's radio call-in show, FJM-style. Wait, scratch that. He does it more like, but he's no thief. Ghostrunner on First.

  • Ian Snell learned how to pitch by watching CC Sabathia on his iPhone. Fanhouse.

  • Dinesh is happy to celebrate the festival of Raksha Bandhan in the States, but misses his family: "Back home, I would have had my sister tying a rakhi on my wrist. Made me really homesick." In Hindi, the word rakhi means 'dog anus'. Million Dollar Arm Blog.

  • The Reds apologized to their fans in a letter, but blamed their shitty play on 'injuries to key players within our starting lineup and rotation'. You dummies, the only real injury that hurt the team was Dusty Baker putting Aaron Harang on the DL from overuse.

  • Carl Pavano is back, in POG form.

  • Fictitious restaurant wins Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. Dr. Vino.

Shameless thief, thankyouverymuch.

There should really be a comic-book villian named "Dr. Vino." Wreaking havoc on the world, one glass of syrah at a time.

All of a sudden, coming here, fans are in the stands fighting each other. People really want it, and it’s fun to be part of something like that.

I also think that Met and Philly fans beating the crap out of each other is fun too.

Must I now also question the "Best Steakhouses" lists in airline magazines?

Whenever I go to CBP, I will now boo Lidge relentlessly until he gives a better interview. The only part I liked was when he sai...zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Brad Lidge is a Texan. What else do you think they drive in fucking Texas?
