Today's links won't bite. Or bark. Unless you back them into a corner. Don't back them into a corner.
If you're in the Bay Area tonight, be sure and catch "Out: The Glenn Burke Story" on CSN Bay Area. Here's Jon Weisman's review.
Matt Klaasen looks at catcher defense rankings.
Bill Baer. Ryan Howard. Heat maps. Five-year, $125 million contract. Uh-oh.
Well, it's official: Big League Chew is Made in the USA (with local news video!).
I agree with 'Duk about the Indians' new road jerseys: They're nice, but if you're going to do something, why not go all the way?
Oddly, the owner of the A's is just like the rest of us: He doesn't have any idea what Bud Selig's committee is doing, either.
