since i don't have an essay prepared about it am i allowed to fanpost it? (actual question there. please let me know etiquette. i just have a feeling it'll get lost in the shots as it's already being ignored in the OT place i previously put it...)
here's an article that i bet you'd enjoy hating on if you haven't yet. get ready for a flashback to more Artful times. my only thoughts are, "surprise! the NYT wrote an article about the A's."
and, "surprise! the NYT wrote an article about the A's that didn't half-way become an article on the NYYs doing all the right things."
and, "did this have any play on the ever-debatable why did beane go with chavez over tejada a few years later?"
maybe as a conversation starter, does anyone remember the events described, either the plays or the mood or the meeting? and do you remember having any suspicions about them?
finally, not a thought, partly of a mantra, partly a song stuck in my head, "drum drum drum-drum-drum, ME-ne-CHI-no!" (second chorus: "double-A hitting coach, ME-ne-CHI-no!")
