Some you will love this, it's a nice article by Joe Posnanski of The Kansas City Star, on his blog...


If you just want to read about the Gloaden Rule, scroll to #4, the rest of the article isn't bad though...

Posnanski is, without question, my favorite writer out there.
He's open-minded about new statistics without taking them as gospel.
He's not afraid to admit he was wrong about something or someone.
He takes suggestions from his readers.
He doesn't write things just to get attention or grab ratings.
You can how much he loves baseball (and life) through his writing, unlike many other writers who seem jaded and curmudgeon-like.
And he has a very good writing style.

I have virtually no interest in Bannister, yet I read his Banny Logs because Posnanski makes them captivating.

I'll second a vote for Joe Posnanski. He's a fabulous writer, and he's in Kansas City. Meanwhile, we have to deal with bull**** airheads like Mariotti and Rogers. What did we do to deserve this?

He wrote a great column a few months ago comparing the careers of Tom Hanks and Steve Guttenberg.

Awesome strat-o-matic references too.

I almost wish I hadn't come across this, the more I think about Ichigload, the more he disgusts me...

He referred to my brother as "excellent" in his blog, like, a week ago (http://joeposnanski.com/JoeBlog/2008/07/22/great-part-ii/).

I would call that excellent as well, your brother is one hell of a writer...
