The Big Announcement

Remember that third "big" announcement I've been hinting at for a while now? Judging from the e-mails I've received on the subject, most of you are sick of waiting to hear about it. There's only so long one's ass can stand being tickled with a feather, I suppose.

The bad news is that I'm not quite ready to spill the beans on it yet. The good news is that I will be spilling all the beans (as well as other assorted vegetables) first thing Monday morning.

Also coming first thing Monday is my Top 50 Prospects of 2004 article, which is another thing many of you have told me you haven't enjoyed waiting for.

In the meantime, I apologize for the lack of a more interesting and lengthy entry for today. It is the end of mid-term week here at the U of MN, so I've been busy. In place of that, here is some suggested weekend reading...

First and foremost, my blog entries from earlier this week:

MON: Value Over Replacement

TUE: 2-3 Months and 17 Years

WED: The Twins take over

THU: Joe on Joe

Also, for those of you who can't wait for Monday's release of my Top 50 Prospects for 2004, you can check out my three-part review of the players who made my list last year:

Top 50 Prospects: A Year in Review (Part One: 31-50)

Top 50 Prospects: A Year in Review (Part Two: 11-30)

Top 50 Prospects: A Year in Review (Part Three: 1-10)

And finally, for the people who are just frankly sick of reading what I have to say, here is some good stuff to check out that is written by people other than me...

- Craig Burley's series on statistical evaluations of college players over at Batter's Box (Part One: Hitters and Part Two: Pitchers). The study is both interesting and groundbreaking, which makes it a must-read.

- Everyone's favorite replacement level Yankees blogger, Larry Mahnken, on Blind Faith and Derek Jeter.

- The group of bloggers are putting together roundtable discussions on each division. So far they've covered the AL West, the NL West, and my personal favorite, the AL Central. Sadly, they didn't ask me to chime in with my thoughts on the Twins (although there is a Twins fans in the group), but I actually found myself so engaged in the discussion that I kept wanting to say something to someone. That is a pretty good sign that it's a great read.

See ya Monday...
