Predictions and Links

Following my sterling 2-2 performance last week, I thought it best to mitigate my picks by linking to other blogs that have material of interest.

An interesting pair of posts from Verdun on baseball and wartime, one on the general idea and the other on its effect on the Hall of Fame.

Who is the greatest fielding shortstop in baseball history? I am not sure, but the Cardinals have at least two in the running, Ozzie Smith and the forgotten Marty Marion

Who makes the Hall of Fame? Well, Bill James has a number of different methods of predicting the vote, and Alex Remington at Yahoo Sports gives us a good overview.

What happens when someone already in the Hall of Fame is proven to be a steroid user? No one knows. Jose Canseco alleges that some member did, but he has the misfortune of remaining Jose Canseco. In contrast, Rob Neyer discusses the question intelligently.

Finally, picks for the week, not against the spread:

Colts over Ravens
Cardinals over Saints
Vikings over Cowboys
Chargers over Jets
