Reading list

I'm hustling to catch a plane, so I'll leave shovel the content duties onto the very capable shoulders of the hyperlink.

Here's the game story from yesterday's debacle.

Here's how the bad news piled up. (News about Zimmerman's MRI)

Here's at least one reason this week can produce something good.

Oh, and one more reading recommendation, if you'll indulge me. If you watched yesterday's game, you probably noticed Wily Mo Pena's bat absolutely shatter in the fifth inning. I mean, it felt apart like a cheap toy. About ten years ago, when players used ash bats almost exclusively, you never saw such a total, almost endangering, decomposition of wood. But now, players are using maple bats, which break more easily and are becoming more and more of an issue within baseball. (I asked Pena after the game if he'd indeed been using a maple bat. Always, he said.) Jeff Passan, who writes for yahoo.com, tackled this subject quite well recently.
