Slow news day

Posted at 3:53 PM on April 18, 2006 by Ben Tesch (2 Comments)

The Twins are off today, and not many games today. There's always Paul Lukas' Uni Watch, which had kept a sharp eye on various baseball clothing items, such as illegal undershirts, new sleeve designs, batting helmets with earflaps, and memorial patches.

Other fodder sure to cause a ruckus is Nate Silver's article on most valuable players, but not the same kind that you're thinking. Nate takes the approach of assuming every single player around the world was a free agent, where all contracts became null and void. Then who is the most valuable player? The top half of the top 50 has alot of future franchisers.

Hah whoops! I meant to say yesterday, but perhaps it was just a amazing premonition.
