This is the 5th installment in a series of many (this is going to outlast the Real World and maybe, just maybe, cockroaches). Without preamble, here goes:
- Steve Goldman writes about Mike Mussina’s sparkling start of the season at the Pinstriped Blog. Should we be concerned that the Yanks have only won 2 of his 4 starts?
- Soxaholic takes note of the date, and discusses the greatness that is Boston baseball right now (including Adam Stern’s dazzling glove work). Speaking of the basis of Cypress Hill’s career, I remember a lot of things seeming better than they were when I was under the spell of a certain…plant. Things like Richard Linklater’s Slacker seemed interesting (what crap!) and Dunkin Donut’s bagels tasted like a gourmet meal. With the lights turned on, the shades up, the truth of these things becomes clear. God, I hate Schilling (but the guy can pitch)!
- At MLB Trade Rumors, Rumor Monger posts about who has the goods and need to get and want Barry Zito if he becomes available. RM believes the Yanks are the early favorite to procur the lefty’s services. Would you trade Hughes and Duncan for Zito? Any opinions?
- And, finally, because the site is pretty great and very useful, I just wanted to mention that David Pinto is keeping us up-to-date on everything going down in baseball at Baseball Musings.
