On Blogging

It's been roughly a month since there's been any activity here(not accidentally, this coincided with the end of the semester for me), but it's high time to get this dog walking again. One of the blocks for me during this month has been the sense that to post new material, I should have something good or feature-length, and this has led to more delays, of course. So in the interest of offering more consistent activity on here, I will be posting shorter and quicker pieces that won't always offer the depth, but will keep the dialogue going.

And I would like to encourage others in the league to continue posting new material as much as possible. If you're not currently signed up to post, let me know(and include your email addy) and we'll get you hooked up.

Hardball Dynasty'sJose Almonte
Jose Almonte
Years Active: -2 to 11
Years with North Stars: 0-11
Claim to fame: 1,496 consecutive games played (Capra record)
Awards: All-Star (1, 4), Silver Slugger (4)

Almonte was an on-base machine, with 7 seasons of .400 OBP or better. That was also his career mark and he had 7 100-walk seasons. He also scored 92 or more runs each of the first 5 seasons of Capra, and hit 38 doubles in season 4. A forearm nerve injury ended his record games-played streak, particularly impressive considering he was a catcher.

Wilson had a long career and finished it with 3 straight seasons hitting over .300 with the club. His .322/.381/.547 slash line at age 34 was impressive.
