Coop's take of Aaron Poreda from yesterday's 'B' game vs. the Rockies:
- Carl's latest 'Palehose 8' comic strips: Regarding Don Anderson, The Great Warrior of Tucson, and Regarding the Truth about Swagger and Passion.
- THT: Craig Brown looks at the Bill James' argument that when a player experiences a sudden spike in walk rate one year, it would often be followed by a substantial drop in batting average the following year.
