A weekly roundup of what’s good to read in baseball.
- Think you know batting stance? Cut4 is going to quiz you on it! (I got 48% and am suitably shamed)
- Former San Fransisco Giants pitcher Barry Zito just release a music video for his country song “Secret to Life” and while the video is a pretty big yawner, the song itself isn’t bad. (country ballad alert):
- Get your tissues out. Here’s a clip of President Obama giving Vin Scully the Medal of Freedom, and no matter how many times I watch it, I get misty.
- The Dodgers spent big when the Guggenheim Partners took over in 2012, now they’re looking to cut back on spending. MLB Trade Rumors takes a look at how this might shake out in their 2017 season.
- Over at Bless You Boys, me and the team talk about why we’re thankful for the Detroit Tigers.
- Which of course tied into my editorial this week: Give Thanks for Baseball.
It was a busy week for me, so no solo content from my at BYB, but expect to see tons of it in next week’r roundup.
