The Pittsburgh GrayCraws

Scott Simkus rocks. Why? Becuase he does stuff like find and analyze stats from Negro League barnstorming tours against white minor league teams in order to try and get a better understanding of how the talent pool looked in the days of pre-integration.

In other news, what kind of backlash would I get if I had linked to an article that uses the phrase “‘super’ negro league team” over at NBC?

    Thought you made a conscious decision a couple of weeks ago about not throwing meat at the zoo animals.
    My latest internet brainstorm: English for Blue Network commenters”
    Sample:
    Dese- plural of “D”
    Dem-  Abbreviation in print to a Democrat
    Dose- a pill used for medication
    Dere- Throw down a gauntlet to those who disagree

    Oh, wait, #4 is English 201, at $50 extra, or a ticket in right field at CitiField, spelling lesson included.  There’s a market for Jerry and Omar, with Frenchy as a visible example.

    Very interesting but not surprising info.
    “Super negro league team” at NBC? The word “lynching” comes to mind.

    “Thought you made a conscious decision a couple of weeks ago about not throwing meat at the zoo animals.” I’m thinking maybe Craig has masochistic tendencies buried somewhere and this is a creative way of dealing with them.

    “My latest internet brainstorm: English for Blue Network commenters” You could offer the same course to the denizens of Citizens Bank Park. (I absolutely hate the names of the new ballparks. I’m too young for Connie Mack Stadium, but even Veterans’ Stadium is better.)
