Couple of items for a slow Friday morning:
–I’ve been meaning to link to this for weeks. It’s the heart-breaking story of Adam Greenberg, a Dodgers farmhand who is trying to make it back to the majors. His previous tenure in the big leagues lasted all of one pitch. Go read it, then join me in rooting for Greenberg to get back to The Show. (Tip of the cap to The Good Ol’ Blog.)
–Here at Redleg Nation, we’re big fans of Will Carroll (although I recognize a difference of opinion on that point). Here is one point on which Carroll and I agree completely. I have to have one of these.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
