Today's links think Chipper Jones should stop worrying about the home runs and just love the walks ...
- Good piece on how Ubaldo Jimenez became an overnight sensation (hint: it didn't happen overnight).
- Mike Fast gets to the bottom of the shuuto pitch (and be sure and read through the comments).
- A certain ex-general manager makes a nice comeback from his recent (and widely ridiculed) comments about a certain Triple-A starting pitcher.
- Dave Allen wonders: Do better players have more Twitter followers?
- I'm afraid this one still needs some work, Sparky. (Randy Wells near the top, Tim Wakefield near the bottom? Come on!)
- Is Carlos Silva for real? Well, no. But sort of. As R.J. Anderson writes, Silva really is a different sort of pitcher this season.
- According to Peter Schmuck, Dave Trembley is a dead man walking ... but the Orioles should be gentle about it.
- Best. Album. Cover. Ever.
