"BASEBALL NERD" & KO-related BASEBALL material

Postby Marie » Mon Mar 23, 2009 3:50 am

NOTE: I'll be changing the subject line from time to time, to keep up with Keith's baseball-related activities. Everything else on the thread stays the same. :-)
__________

Kicking this thread off with a blast from the past --

It's a very shaky video but the audio is wonderfully clear and may put you in mind
of a piece Keith did on Moonlight Graham a while back --


Keith's related interview with the actor who plays Mathewson (talking about Fred Merkle)
here.

And now, continuing his lifelong love of the game, Keith and MLBlogs present:
BASEBALL NERD!

Looks like the 'Wing Nuts' can't give it a rest. :roll:

Here is part of todays post. :wink:

Keith Olbermann wrote:POLITICS-FREE

Thanks to all for the comments and the welcomes and the flaming go-to-Hades. This blog is about baseball and not politics; I won't touch the latter here unless it unavoidably pertains to something between the foul lines, so write all you want about left-versus-right - I hope you find it entertaining to yourself, I won't be reading it. As elsewhere here, abuse won't be tolerated and the fine folks at MLB.Com will ultimately decide if we have to start approving comments. Doesn't matter to me; I come here under the banner of the greater good: Baseball.

Bless his heart! Baseball has always been the one corner of the world where he's completely happy.

The turkeys will never get him down: he's heard worse about the umpire many times!

So this just appeared -- our Keith has been busy with a lot of projects this year! And once again, all you had to do was mention that he wrote the foreword to a book for the flying monkeys to be unleashed. (The co-authors are probably sitting there reading the comments and thinking, "Hey, remember us? What are we, potted plants? What the hell is going on here???")

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you --

Baseball Prospectus 2009!

Yeah, really, it's really a baseball book!

That was fun. Thanks, SL!

KT shows she's an all-day sucker for Keith. :-)

Could be because he's looking down... :-k

I always look at the other people in a Keith photo to see how they're reacting, and when I spotted that guy I thought he was just someone who looked like Jay. But then I saw what Keith wrote:

"Until [Jason] saw the shot, he had no idea we had spent the afternoon sitting in front of Jay Leno."

I wonder who took the pic. They did a nice job.
