Good read - thanks for sharing it.
   2. RMc's Unenviable Situation Posted: August 23, 2017 at 08:14 AM (#5519171)
The world needs more men like JD Droddy.

This team would've made the list, but they played only 64 games. Fortunately.

So is the American Association doing okay, or is it in trouble in general?
   4. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: August 23, 2017 at 09:10 AM (#5519191)
This is definitely a worthwhile read.

I've always thought that Ben Lindbergh could really write.... but this is a really good article, probably one of his best.

This is a great read.

Say what you will about his writing and analysis, Bill Simmons has proven to be a very good evaluator and curator of writing talent.

I took Constitutional Law and Judicial Procedure years ago with Professor JD Droddy. Almost made me want to be a lawyer. He was brilliant.

Simmons reminds me of mid-to-late career top academics. He is very good at developing talent and guiding it, but the admin and supervising load takes a toll on your ability to do the work yourself.
