Today at THT

When there isn’t a lot of baseball news, I try to find non-baseball articles with which I can find fault. For example, here is an article about presidential aging that does not account for the fact that William Henry Harrison had every bit as youthful a countenance on his deathbed as he did the day he took office. Just because you didn’t include it in your data set doesn’t mean it didn’t happen, people.

  • Colin Wyers begins a series that attempts to determine how much a player is truly worth to his team. I presume that his numbers will be different than those generated by Scott Boras when he puts together those hilarious player prospectuses each offseason.
  • Don Malcom has part two of his series on the Hall of Fame. I counted already, but quick, without looking, see if you can guess how many times the name “Rice” appears in it. I’ll set the over/under at 16. And . . . Go!
  • Over at Fantasy Focus, Alex Zelvin gives you some tips on how to do well at something called Rotohog. I haven’t read it yet, but I’m not sure how useful this article can be, really. I remember renting one of them rotohogs that time I needed to grind out that stump in my front yard, and when I did the guy at the Home Depot told me everything I needed to know.
  • Finally, Michael Lerra lays out some basic rules for your upcoming draft. The first rule is that you do not talk about your Fantasy Draft. The second rule is – you DO NOT talk about your fantasy draft. Third rule: someone yells Stop!, goes limp, taps out, the draft is over. Fourth rule . . . well, you see where this is going.
