Today at THT

Things to read as you stew about how there will soon be less baseball coverage in August than there used to be:

  • Joe Distelheim has five questions about the Chicago Cubs. Question number six: You know, winning the World Series might be nice and all, but I bet there’s a lot of money to be had in a bicentennial celebration of the last World Series win, so maybe you want to wait a while longer?
  • Jeff Sackmann has five questions about the Milwaukee Brewers. Question number six: ever thought of really making that race interesting by adding some andouille or Braunschweiger?
  • Sky Kalkman assesses the careers of three contemporaries: Boggs, Gwynn and Ripken. What, no Brookens?
  • Tuck! talks stimulus
  • Finally, over at Fantasy Focus, Alex Zelvin discusses using poker strategy to win at Fantasy Baseball. Color me dubious. I had my last fantasy draft last night and wore a silly visor, big sunglasses, and some unfortunate gold jewelry, and I don’t think it helped a bit.
  • Here’s a plan: why not make the NFL season a year-round thing. Yeah, it may stink at first, but eventually every player will get injured, and then maybe the game will just sort of drift away into history. Don’t look at me that way. A boy can dream, can’t he?

      They did. They tried adding chorizo a few years ago, but MLB smacked them down hard. It’s sort of stunning (although not so surprising, I guess) that MLB has a version of the Formula 1 rules for sausage races.
