The RP’s Weekly Web Gems: The Politics of The Diamond

Politics of the Diamond

There has been a bit of hoopla in the media about an attendance crisis in MLB.  The Big Lead has done some investigating.  Turns out that if your front office makes an effort to put a good team on the field consistently, fans show up to games.  How erratic! [The Big Lead]

The Arcade Fire won the Grammy for Album of the Year this year.  Here is a video of them singing “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” at Wrigley Field. [Deadspin]

Another link cross-pollinating WWG topics is this: a very interesting read about Jeremy Guthrie of the Baltimore Orioles and many other members of the Latter Day Saints faith in Major League Baseball. [Desert News]

Major League Baseball has released their All-Star ballot.  Be sure to fill it out! []

As a Cardinals fan, I hate it when the Cubs do well.  And that means I’ve spent a lot of time over the past two years being mad at Starlin Castro, the Cub’s young and promising shortstop.  Although this article’s title may be a bit racist, the content is very interesting–its about Starlin and his climb to the majors from his Dominican roots.
