Things to read while realizing that sometimes it’s better to let the metaphors go and simply call it like you see it:

  • Scott Lucas has five questions about the Texas Rangers. Question number 6: how much money would the Rangers pay you if you built a machine that turned corner guys with some pop into starting pitchers? $5 million? $10 million?
  • Steve Treder has part 2 of his look at the Branch Rickey Pirates. As I mentioned over the weekend, I just read and reviewed a book about Walter O’Malley. The entire time I was reading it, I kept thinking “boy, I can’t wait until Rickey shows up again, he’s way more interesting than O’Malley.” I think the author might have felt that way too.
  • Dan Turkenkopf analyzes Vernon Wells. Dan prefers a Jungian critique, whereas I dismiss the accumulative phenomenology of symbols and dreams, taking more of a Freudian approach.
  • Peter Jensen has part 3 of his Gameday/fielding metric analysis.
  • Paul Singman shares his Yahoo! team roster with us. I have a Yahoo! draft coming up a week from Wednesday. I have this feeling my team won’t look as good as Paul’s.
  • Finally, Eriq Gardner talks about “unsexy balance.” I haven’t read the article yet, but I’m going to assume it’s about someone putting their socks on in the morning without sitting down.
