Joe Posnanski does a Poz-style post comparing prospect lists. He doesn’t actually mention the Mets by name, at all, but he uses the Nationals relatively gentle handling of Stephen Strasburg as compared with the Indians “abuse” of a 17-year-old Bob Feller to argue for a more aggressive handling of prospects. And Mets fans groaned.
Bob Feller debuted over 73 years ago, on July 19, 1936. It’s just a different game. I’m not suggesting Feller wouldn’t be awesome today, but the game on the field is pretty different, no?
I love reading Posnanski, but sometimes his stuff just goes on and on, usually in a good way, but how in the world does one process all of this information now?
My favorite part of this Ted Berg post is not that he’s coming to hang out in Savannah, although I am excited for that too, but that he goes all free-association with the word Houston to link to Beck. My man-crush on Beck predates my being a man. Easily.
If this Chocolate Strawberry rap from 1987 doesn’t make you smile, you might actually not be human, or a Mets fan.
