Links for a spring morning

Holy cow, is it nice out there or what? I went shopping for softball gloves yesterday and was too hot in my pants. Crazy. Speaking of softball, what is the deal with that? This is my first year joining a league and there are multiple ball sizes. Seriously? Is this a tremendous difference between a slow pitched 12.5 inch ball and a 14 inch? Is this really necessary for me to have different sized gloves?

On to the links..

Anthony Witrado's English Adventures Continued...: Al points out another classic A-Dub mistake. I love that it's Al pointing it out because he is quick to point out that he's no English major himself.

USA beats itself by slaughter rule: I remember when I was in little league and we lost a game once by slaughter rule. Even though I was 0-3 I still wanted to fight every single one of my teammates for letting this happen. I hope Youkilis doesn't feel the same way, he could probably do it.

Wait a minute, why am I talking about this?: BRAUN IS INJURED??!? I HATE THE WORLD BASEBALL CLASSIC!!! I HATE THE DUTCH!!!

You know who else hates the Dutch? Matt Lindstrom: The WBC is no longer fun and games.

Brewers too reliant on home runs: You know, because that strategy worked so horribly for the Phillies.

Bill James wants a piece of me: Bill James comments on Rickie Weeks. I'm going to comment more on this later, but I'll give you a preview: I am going to challenge a 59 year old man to a fight.

Mets owners are greedy, jerks: Shocking, no?

We'll be back with more later. (A lot more actually.) Until then if you want links done right check out Brew Crew Ball who have been very kind to us in our short existence. (Sidenote: Does it bother anyone else that the Brewers and Cubs blogs on SB Nation both are initialized BCB? That bugs the crap out of me.)
