Serving up yesterday's dose of VEB

We've turned from projecting to looking at the results of the projections, with Craig yesterday announcing the results for Trevor Rosenthal's VEB projections. VEB projected a 2.1 WAR, and I love Rosie, but 2.1 is a pretty large number for a reliever. I could certainly see Rosie eclipsing that number in 2016, but I'll take the under.

Outsports, SBN's blog following gay and lesbian issues in sports, covered the story of Tyler Dunnington, a former Cardinals minor leaguer who reportedly quit after hearing several homophobic comments from his team members and coaches. Sheesh, he just had to play for the Cardinals, who really could use a break from bad PR. Professional sports does seem to be one of the last bastions of homophobia in America, perhaps due to sharing space in locker rooms, but hopefully the great work done by Billy Bean pays off and a player's sexuality is a non-factor is sports soon enough.
