Things you’ll want to read this morning:
- Joel Sherman picks the “under performing All-Star” team. Some of the names don’t really strike me as All-Stars, at least not anymore, but it’s a fun read all the same. In a morbid sort of way.
- Along similar lines, Joe Posnanski picks the “having a worse season than Jeter” All-Star team. And this was before Jeter’s good weekend!
- Tom Verducci analyzes baseballs attendance numbers without hyperventilating. Hey, that’s a pretty big achievement for the MSM, who are always eager to write yet another story about the much publicized demise of baseball. Larry did the same for the Yankees last week, although sober rationality is much more common from him. (To be clear, I’m not ribbing Verducci here, but the MSM in general. I like Verducci.)
