It occurred to me that I haven’t been providing links to my recent Sporting News columns here. Thus, I’m going to offer links to a few articles this morning.
Anyone who reads me regularly knows that over the past few months, I’ve been interviewing long-retired candidates like Dale Murphy, Bobby Grich, and Dwight Evans. With the MLB season getting underway though, my editor and I thought it might be good to focus on some active players. Hence, over the past few weeks, I’ve assessed the cases of Buster Posey, Zack Greinke, and Justin Verlander.
It’s fun to shift gears a little and write about players that a lot of contemporary readers care about. That said, I’ll probably do another round of interviews before too long. Ideally, when the Expansion Era Committee releases its ballot for Cooperstown in the fall, I’d like to have interviewed every player on it.
