100% Joe Posnanski links

It's been nearly two weeks since I've posted anything.  Why?  Well, I've been very busy and by the time I get home at night, I just haven't felt much like writing. I've also been reading far less of the baseball stuff the various baseball blogs,,, mlbtraderumors, FanGraphs and the like have to offer each day.  But the one blog I always manage to check (along with Neyer's Sweetspot) is Joe Posnanski's blog.  I've heard people say on more than one occasion he's likely the greatest American sportswriter ... and each day I read something new from him I find nothing to dispute that.  What's more?  Joe, unlike so many of America's sportswriters, embraces sabermetrics.  Isn't that something?  

With that ... a triple dip of Joe Posnanski:  

If you think its tough to be a Giants fan, you're right.  Well, at least it's been pretty rough recently.  It's worse for Pirates fans.  But, it may just be worse for Royals fans ... Doyle's law (for 25th Hour fans); no Murphy's Law really does apply when the Royals lion mascot Sluggerrr hits a man in the eye with a hot dog.  What's the worst result that could happen from a team mascot hitting a fan in the eye with a harmless hot dog?  Well, read this (on the Royals taking losing to a new level) to find out ... I don't recommend reading it in an area designated for quiet (like I did).

All Giants fans should read this from Joe Posnanski on Pedro Feliz

And this also from (you guessed it) Joe, which leads me to my next post...
