Links on a lost day

Though I often think I’m better than that, the truth of the matter is that I mostly traffic in snark. Hey, it’s what works for me, so I’m not going to hide from it. The problem with snark, however, is that it rarely plays when things get serious, and the death of Nick Adenhart made today a serious day. Certainly one on which I didn’t feel like snarking about anything. Mostly I’ve been doing what most people do at times like these: reflecting on how damn fleeting life is and planning on trying to remember that more often from now on, even if I’ll probably forget it by next week and return to the same old baloney with which I’ve always filled my own life.

Put differently, I lost the will to blog late this morning and decided to punt the day. Before the Adenhart news, however, I had written a few posts over at NBC that those of you who actually enjoy a little snark when things get bleak might enjoy:

  • The Nats’ curious Philadelphia outreach program
  • Some more Marlins’ ballpark ranting. Cut me some slack; you guys may be tired of it, but the NBC readership doesn’t yet know how obsessive I am about that kind of thing.
  • The case against retiring Doc Gooden and Darryl Strawberry’s numbers
  • And finally, my attempt at stealing Yahoo!’s idea of building the perfect ballclub.
  • Hope you like it. I promise I’ll be back together tomorrow. In the meantime, be careful out there and make sure you tell the people you love that you love them as often as possible.
