A weekly roundup of what’s good to read in baseball.
- 538 has a very mathy chart predicting the Cubs as the most likely candidate to win the 2017 World Series.
- This piece by Michael Lananna about the life of pitching prospect Donny Everett is moving and beautifully written.
- Sports Illustrated featured unusual pitcher Sidd Finch in a fantastic story.
Hunter Pence got mushy ahead of Opening Day.
I really love seeing Dads and Sons playing catch in the parking lot before games…fires me up

Over at Bless You Boys I wrote some stuff:
- Michael Fulmer will take the mound for the Tigers home opener.
- Max Scherzer made Tim Tebow look pretty minor league.
- The MLB released an awesome new hype video, I talk about why it actually matters.
- I look at the reasons why using Anibal Sanchez in the starting rotation might be a good idea for the Tigers. (a couple days after this it was announced Matthew Boyd would take the 5th starter job)
