It is fun to talk about Gwynn’s value, his production, his advanced numbers (WAR and OPS+). But it was transcendent just watching him hit, watching him devise a way to slip the baseball through.

You can't make this stuff up.

Right? This in particular got me:



One of my favorite fatherhood experiences was when Elizabeth rode in the front seat of the car for the first time, and we turned on the radio and some super fun song came on — I think it was “Call Me Maybe” — and we sang along, and she did this funny little dance, and it was so fantastic, even if it doesn’t translate to anyone else.


I have a 4 year old daughter, and on a whim this week I taught her "Funkytown," only substituting silly things for "Funky" whenever we wanted. And she made up this silly little dance to it, and it's great. And Joe's description here kinda matches my own experience. Amazing.

As I watched her, all I could think was how grown up she has become, how deeply I already miss the 4- and 5- and 6-year old versions of her, but also how fantastic the 9-year-old version is. No, I don’t want to start singing “Sunrise, Sunset” here … fathers understand.



This part got me.  I already miss the 12 month and 18 month versions of my kids.  Yes, they are more interesting and fun at 2, but they'll never be that cuddly and sweet again.  And, like, that's it, it's over.  Gone.  Just like that.

I'm severely disappointed that he hasn't written about LeBron coming home yet.

His blog post on Ted Williams and the Boudreau Shift is classic Pos, though, with his unique blend of youthful, amused, fascination and down to earth explanation.

Awesome thank you. I always forget to check the NBC site. He has a very weird consistency about which posts make it over to his page.

Pos will usually tweet a link to new columns
