    Today's links could have been all about Tim McClelland, except he seems like a nice enough fellow so I'll cut him some slack ... after I'm finished ripping him! My biggest problem with The Worst Call of All Time isn't that McClelland blew it. Eve...

  8. Yankees bench Hall of Famer

    Today's links are about baseball, mostly. * Jonah Keri takes issue with my supposition that Jorge Posada's not going to wind up as a deserving Hall of Famer. Jonah might be right. But I can't see Posada actually getting in. Not unl...

    Rob Neyer

    While fisking someone else's all-'00s team yesterday, I goofed. As one commenter was only too happy to point out ... No Catchers played in the 2000s? Really? How can we be expected to take this seriously if something as egregious as leaving ...
