Quick Programming Note
I just wanted to let everyone (the 8 of you that read this) know that posts might be sparse for the next few weeks. The reason? I’m beginning another project (also baseball-related) set to start just after the World Series. You can check back here for more details once it’s up and running. Rest assured, loyal readers, that Knuckleballs is not dying. This new project will take some effort to get going, but Knuckleballs will still be fluttering in from time to time. Once the other project is going, Knuckleballs will go back to its current operating procedures: also sparse posts (the only difference now is that I’m flat-out telling you I’ll only be writing once a week). For anyone who is curious, topics currently in the queue:
- Roster construction: how many different ways to get to the goal? (H/T to Loyal Reader Mac, whose silly banter has provided the idea for many of these posts)
- AL and NL Award Ballots (MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year): I will publish these before the awards are announced (I have my lists, but I want to offer some analysis with them as well, so be patient).
- I’ll be going back through the first 70 posts and checking all of my predictions. All of them: the good (David Wright and Ubaldo Jimenez), the bad (Scott Baker is a sleeper Cy Young candidate), and the ugly (HEY SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS).
Thanks again to everyone for reading and helping to make this “realer.”
