On the Irate front, Steve Z. of IrateFans eloquently argues for a public audit of the Pirates' books. IrateFans also has a nice set of new essays from Jim Krug on Baseball Mogul mockery of DL, Charlie on detailing the DL blunders, and Pat on abandoning all hope.
News of other bloggy goodness brings: Charlie arguing against and even pleading with DL not to resign Casey. I wholeheartedly agree with Charlie and most others here: signing Casey to a 3-year, $18,000,000 deal would be sheer insanity. Billy and Zeke came within 5-10 feet of evil, greedy, master loser Ogden Nutting while wearing their authentic IratesFans t-shirts at the ASG.
