In celebration of the beginning of the Steelers' Thunderdome Fantasy Football League, Cotter at One for the Other Thumb has put together a Meeting People Is Easy with the contestants. It's quite a cast, as you'll see if you click the link. I could tell you that our five-day e-mail draft was one of the most hilarious things I've ever done, but you don't care about my fantasy football team.

The Centre Daily Times has been destroying the Pirates' management of late for letting the State College debacle happen. Charlie has been on the ball for the whole thing and the problem is really quite simple: it's Dave Littlefield's fault. Welcome to the club, State College.

Remember last year when the Brewers and Cubs passed around the NL Central lead like a hot potato and it seemed like no one wanted to win? Yeah, it's happening again. If the Astros make the playoffs, so help me god ...

So ... many ... LaRoches ...

The blogger formerly known as Postman R left FanHouse a while back to run the blogging side of things on a site called Mouthpiece Sports. Yesterday he scored a solid interview with one of my favorite writers, Chuck Klosterman. And check out the rest of the blog as well, since it's essentially the reincarnation of We Are the Postmen along with FanHouse's Will Brinson and Jon Bois (aka, one of the Dugout guys).

New sidebar links: Brooks Baseball (which has the PitchFX tool that I use a ton), One for the Other Thumb (solid Steelers blog, fellow Thunderdome league member as mentioned above), Baseball Digest Daily (all around good baseball stuff).
