Tuesday Quick Hits: Rickey Henderson Is The Epitome of Awesome

Rickey Henderson

  • As far as personalities go, I think Rickey Henderson might be my favorite baseball player of all time. Pretty good interview with him here, and I know I've linked this before, but it's always worth revisiting some of his greatest quotes.
  • Poor Blue Jay fans. I still can't believe that guy wore a Cincinnati Reds uniform.
  • has moved to MVN, so make sure to check that out. Great site.
  • Interesting possibility floated by In Demand to replace Extra Innings: they might just mass buy subscriptions and offer them to customers at a discounted rate.
  • Reds and Blues reviews the new Baseball Prospectus. I bought it myself about a week ago, and like Doc I just don't enjoy it like I used to. Really inconsistent writing and analysis, plus as Doc notes the production quality has weirdly declined. The publisher used cheap paper for some reason. I don't know, maybe I'm holding them to a higher standard than usual, and I am enjoying the book, just not as much as I have previously.
  • Deadspin's season preview for the Reds is pretty entertaining.
  • It's incredible how far Mark Prior has fallen. Not to be a Debbie Downer or anything, but I always try to think about guys like Prior when I find myself thinking of Homer Bailey as the team's savior. You just never know.
  • This article really could have been written about Adam Dunn, and it wouldn't have read all that differently.
  • John Fay is pretty wishy washy here, but he seems to think that Griffey will be moving to right. I'm starting to think we'll see Hamilton in center on Opening Day, with Griffey on the DL, but we'll see.
