Sometimes people write better than us. Each Thursday WoW gives you our favorite baseball links we've come across.
- Larry Stone has been following the Brett Favre "will he or won't he just die already" story from a distance and can't help but notice the similarities between Favre's fading glory and that of Mr. Steve Carlton. It's especially interesting to note that, even at age 64, Steve Carlton would have a better passer rating than Favre and would require far less Vicodin. The Hot Stone League.
- Matt Sussman calls out anonymous sources in the sports world (like the ones who finger steroid users or leak silly news) and he demands that they be unmasked, paraded through town squares in shackles, and then dipped in the watering hole in one of those old-fashioned dunking devices. The Layoff Beard.
- Bobby Valentine has a blog and isn't afraid to use it to bore you. Before entertaining us with tales of his pals from Stamford, CT coming to visit him in Japan, he knocks down the rumours that the Nationals have contacted him about their not-quite-yet-vacated managerial job. Also, he posed for this awesome picture. On the Road with Bobby V.
- Rany Jazayerli notices how well the Royals have done in interleague play and wonders if the franchise would have been better off switching leagues when they had the chance. Unfortunately, they'd be a shitty team in any league just as long as they keep paying Jose Guillen to play baseball. Rany on the Royals.
- Did you realize that there have been enough MLBers who have lent their names and likenesses to video games over the years to form an entire starting lineup? You even have the 1980s computer game Earl Weaver Baseball to manage the virtual team and spew vulgarities at the virtual umpires. Wezen-ball.
