A Subjective Look at Defense
by

I can think of only one good thing about Ken Griffey Jr.'s injury: it's a legend in the making, right up there with the Curse of the Bambino, and it reinforces why baseball is the greatest game on earth.

I can think of only one good thing about Ken Griffey Jr.'s injury: it's a legend in the making, right up there with the Curse of the Bambino, and it reinforces why baseball is the greatest game on earth.

Before we proceed further, know that I take no joy in watching an All-Century Team player's career so ruthlessly derailed. Long-time readers of my columns will remember the scathing denunciations I leveled on Junior for trying to screw his old team on his way out of Seattle. Griffey said straight out that he'd use his 10-and-5 rights to veto a trade to Cincinnati if the Reds had to give up too much to get him.

However, we're all guilty of occasionally giving in to our darker sides, so why should Griffey be any different? We should cut him the same slack that we hope for when we lapse into the less-than-noble, selfish half of our personality.

So it's not the Griffey injury that's amazing, but rather the unpredictable results from a given set of circumstances. Babe Ruth was a top left-handed pitcher with a great bat when he was sold from the Boston Red Sox. He went on to become on the game's greatest sluggers, rewriting the future of two American League franchises.

At the time of the sale, nobody could've envisioned how everything would ultimately shake out--that's what makes it legendary.

Let's revisit the circumstances of the 1999-2000 offseason. The Seattle Mariners were coming off a disappointing third-place finish in the AL West. The Cincinnati Reds had narrowly missed reaching the post-season, losing a one-game playoff to the New York Mets for the NL wild card. During that season, Ken Griffey, Jr. had been named to the All-Century team.

Baseball Prospectus

We've tabulated this year's HACKING MASS results, and we've got ourselves a winner. Keith Lindahl led his imaginatively named squad to a fantastic 371.76 ESPN to easily capture the 2001 HACKING MASS title. Keith's winning team is a smorgasboard of stiffness:

The Internet has spoken. Your choices for this year's Internet Baseball Awards.

It's time to announce the winners of the tenth annual Internet Baseball Awards. More than 2,000 cyberspace baseball fans--a new record--participated in this effort to select the baseball players whose 2001 seasons were most deserving of honors.

This year marks not only our tenth year of balloting (we started in 1991, but sat out the 1994 season in protest of baseball's rude behavior), but also our fifth year of Web balloting. A few of our readers probably remember the good old days of e-mail ballots (as we remember all the fun it was counting ballots by hand), but most of you have been treated only to the extraordinarily comprehensive user-friendly Web ballots designed by BP's Webmaster, Dave Pease. Our thanks go to Dave, who puts in a ton of work to make this process go smoothly.

For those of you who haven't been to an Angels game lately, the Rally Monkey is the Angels' device for getting the crowd excited when the team is behind. It started about a year ago, and now every time the Angels need runs, they show a clip of this small animal, who may or may not be the monkey from "Friends" jumping up and down. There are Rally Monkey stuffed animals, T-shirts, a movie is in the works...you get the picture. A bad idea being pushed by the full weight of Disney's marketing muscle.
