It's been a while since I've done a reposter, or since you've read a reposter. That's because not much is happening, and when it does Wick is pretty much on it. So I'll try and uncover some interesting stuff that you should read.
Or a bit more interesting and Shinkellian, The History of Catcher's Masks. I love how masks had a mouth hole so that ballplayers wouldn't spit dip all over their cage.
Jose Arangure wrote a phenomenal article about Dominican deaths in light of Oscar Taveras' death. I will basically read anything about young Dominicans in baseball, and this is no different.
This Post Dispatch photograph is relevant, devastating.
But, on a lighter note, Pops Daniels won the "What's the worst live sports experience" thread that SBN tried to run. As always, thank you so much for existing, Pops.
And finally: We're going to do another Winter Book Club this winter. Any suggestions. I think that The Devil's Snake Curve is the early leader in the clubhouse, but I'm open to anything that's either fiction or non-fiction as long as it'll be interesting to talk about. Any suggestions? We'd love to have something up and ready in a month.
