Hot Stove -- 1/20 thru 1/27 or 400+ comments

Up over 400 posts again, so here's a new thread.

A couple of starting points:

  • Over at Beyond the Boxscore they have an excellent book review of Brad Snyder's "A Well Paid Slave", about Curt Flood's fight for free agency in the late '60's and early 70's.  (Amazon link here).  I read and cited much of this book when I was working on my dissertation on organized labor in professional sports a few years back; it is an excellent read for anyone interested in baseball history.
  • Hardcore and some others found an MLBTR link about Sheets asking for 2Y$18M with a third year option from the Mets.  To me this screams of a pitcher with possible health issues.  He'd be much better off on an incentive laden one year deal with the crappy 2009-2010 free agent class of pitchers.
