    https://joeposnanski.substack.com/p/baseball-76-ferguson-jenkins I wanted to read up on Fergie Jenkins, and found this. THIS guy is a Writer. I am usually down on the guys who cover the Orioles because frankly they’re neither very good writers nor very insightful. It takes a real artistic talent to be able to share facts, and opinion, and do so beautifully; To write in such a way that the writing itself is appealing more than the information that is being shared. Joe and I disagree on a lot of things that are taking place in society today, and neither of us is losing any sleep
  2. Some selected highlights, from The Athletic:
  3. For any Athletic subscribers, want to hear your thoughts on Posnanski’s top 100 of all time list. Nice group of O’s on there, Brooks, Frank, Cal and Mussina. A little disappointed Eddie Murray wasn’t included and think there’s a good case for Palmer as well. The outrage over Ruth at #2 with Mays presumably ahead of him at 1 is amusing to me, couple that with Bonds at #3 and the end of the list has been entertaining.
  4. https://medium.com/joeblogs/the-balance-of-baseball-3fe894ef8602 Follow up post on the math. Outs are bad M'kay? Also 4 singles are better than 2 home runs. https://medium.com/joeblogs/baseballs-balance-in-math-2a49aaa3819a
  5. And his daughter. You all know I'm a fan but this one is strong even by his standards. http://joeposnanski.com/hamilton/

  10. Hey BTerp, someone else posted a Posnanski article for once. http://joeposnanski.si.com/2012/02/10/aging-with-chart/?sct=hp_bf3_a2&eref=sihp
  11. Maybe I missed us talk about this but the great Joe Posnanski had this to say about Adam Jones buried in a blog about lineups: I think that the next big defensive cat fight will be over Adam Jones. As you probably know, the defensive cat fight the last few years has been over Derek Jeter — with some people whipping up numbers that show him to be a dreadful shortstop and others throwing Gold Gloves at him the way women used to throw underwear at Tom Jones. And there was a mini-fight over Torii Hunter, who was beloved by the eye but not so much by the stats. Now we have Jones. I spent the othe
  12. http://joeposnanski.blogspot.com/2011/04/greatest-rock-band-in-world.html Concerning who holds the greatest rock band in the world title, that's a tough one as Joe mentions. Arcade Fire is tremendous and growing in popularity, but I don't know that they're popular enough to hold that crown. But who is?
  13. Pretty good read from Joe Posnanski at SI this morning on Jeter and Tiger Woods making changes to their swings to fight back father time. We've all been waiting for the Yankees to age and maybe just maybe 2011 is that season. This is a team that actually played under .500 the last two months of the season. Albeit by one game. And full disclosure, it doesn't exactly paint a pretty picture for Derek Lee and Vladdy having big years at 35+. I think they can still be effective. But as we've all been saying this offseason, it'll be the young arms that will lead us to the promised land in 2011.
  14. http://joeposnanski.si.com/2011/10/11/the-worst-contracts-in-baseball/ Once again premium work.
  15. Great article: http://joeposnanski.si.com/2011/07/01/14-crazy-baseball-facts/?hpt=hp_c2

  17. Ok, now that I have your attention...:laughlol: No, that's not really what he says. http://joeposnanski.blogspot.com/2010/11/age-of-setup-man.html As he suggests, and so do some of the commenters, this is not exactly a completely ground-breaking discovery. But it's still shocking to see the numbers laid out and just how inconsequential a "closer", as we think about him today, may actually be. Especially compared to the "setup" man, who is essentially doing the same job the "closer" did 30 years ago.

  20. http://joeposnanski.si.com/2010/08/24/all-too-familiar/?eref=sihp Excellent article on the young phenoms who never reached potential because of injuries. Ben McDonald gets a paragraph in there too.
  21. http://joeposnanski.com/JoeBlog/2010/08/11/defensive-numbers/#more-3796 Really good stuff here about a much discussed and debated topic on the Hangout.
  22. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/joe_posnanski/08/31/bill.james/index.html?eref=sihp The "professionalism" section is an interesting point. I think that really goes to the heart of, for example, Moneyball; both the concept and the reaction. The whole idea is to use your resources to produce the most wins, using unconventional methods if that is what you need to do. And what form has most of the negative reaction taken? Ridicule. I also like the take on Bill James. I don't think there are very many better people to watch a game with, and the idea that most of what he has figure
