For those of you who have Netflix "instant watch," I just want to call your attention to an old interview with Ted Simmons--exactly the kind of thing that gets you through the off-season. It's on the show "Talking Baseball with Ed Randall." I've been working my way through the various interviews, and this may be my favorite. I'm too young to remember Simmons's playing career, but in interview he strikes me as one of the most intelligent ballplayers I've ever heard speak. For those interested in the history of the game, it's a must-see. He talks about being his own agent, about leaving the Cardinals, about catching Gibson, etc. Having never seen him play, I'm a Simba fan, just from this interview.
