In my dreams I keep seeing the Ken Burns title card, "A Death in the Family."

Happiness is listening to the O's preview podcast, hearing a Neil Young song come on at the end, wondering why you guys chose that one, then, hey! I get it. Thanks for the laugh.

Among my very favorite things about baseball is that they don't change the rules every year. Change that and baseball will die faster because its sense of permanence and history is a large part of what sets it apart from all other major sports.

My impression, watching Reddick over the course of 2015, was that his defense had definitely fallen off. In particular, vaunted throwing arm seemed to lack steam. Given his injury history, I assumed there was something nagging going on, but not something that would force him to sit. His defense is one of the things I'll be watching closely this year.

But it is seen in both football and basketball. Not necessarily in as ritualized a form as hockey but still very much there, nevertheless. In both sports, players and coaches from each team seek their counterparts to exchange handshakes and good wishes after each game, not just playoff games.

Okay, fine, bring the DH to the NL. However, when a manager changes pitchers he has to change the DH, too. Now there's strategy!

Nailing two runners at the plate in the same inning during a game where you go 3 for 5 with a double, triple, and home run and drive in 5 is one hell of a game on both sides of the ball.

As an A's fan and someone not unfamiliar with 1978 Van Halen bootlegs living in a place three orders of magnitude worse than Phoenix and 300 miles from big league sports of any kind, I dug every syllable of this. Always a pleasure to read your stuff.

How much to keep Myron Noodleman away from my local ballpark all season?

Questions that occur: how large is the spread of talent between the best coaches in the big leagues and the worst? One of the takeaways I got from this piece is that without good coaches player performance would suffer, but if most big league coaches fall into a narrow competent-plus range, most players gain the same level of benefit, neutralizing the value of one coach versus another. Thus, while coaches are important, since everyone has one, they aren't significant when trying to explain why one team wins more games than another. But if some coaches are Johnny Bench and others are Rick Stelmaszek, then it's worth a closer look.

I was at the game when Gallo had his two-homer night and his second shot, a slam, was the longest home run I've ever seen in that park. A real jaw-dropper.

Was Bonds going to take a minor league deal for half a mil?
