rudolphAs you folks know by now, I’m wintering on GammonsDaily.com writing just about every day, M-F.

Here are some highlights from this past week:

Thinking about Wee Willie Keeler, Freddie Patek, Dustin Pedroia, Eddie Gaedel, and less than kinds words for Randy Newman.

Let’s all appreciate a better brand of baseball and Jim Thome.

If you work out the bullpen, it appears you don’t stay anyplace for any length of time. Take LaTroy Hawkins , who since the last time he signed with Rockies in 2006, has signed free agent contracts with the Yankees, Astros, Brewers, Angels, Mets, and he’s back with Colorado.

Brian Roberts a Yankee

A chance for Roberts to be on the DL for New York.

Rudolph has his own page on the indispensable Baseball-Reference.com, whose founder, Sean Forman, will one day end up in the Hall of Fame.

It’s not too late to give the best gift: THE BILL JAMES HANDBOOK

http://www.gammonsdaily.com/its-not-too-late-to-give-the-best-gift-the-bill-james-handbook/

As you are looking at the meh group of gifts you planning to give this holiday season, may I strongly recommend that you purchase the 25th anniversary edition of The Bill James Handbook.
