Projecting Akinori Iwamura
Jeff Sackmann has a fine article up over at the Hardball Times that attempts to project Akinori Iwamura in the Majors for 2007. Read it, please.
Jeff runs also Brew Crew Ball among other sites; check it out.
In case you missed it, Jeff is going to be filling in for me on MLBTradeRumors when I leave for my honeymoon next week. I just had my bachelor party last night at Sluggers. Dueling pianos and batting cages! I'm pretty surprised I wrote as much as I did today given the hangover and whatnot. Bachelor parties are cool; you should each have several of your own. Every time you finish your beer someone is handing you a new one...and you don't have to pay for it!
We've also got more first-rate bloggers who are going to pop in with guest posts while I'm gone (Larry from Viva El Birdos, Tom from CubDumb, Greg from SportsBlah, Jake from Bucco Blog, and so forth). I think the site is going to be very cool while I'm away.
Many thanks to all those who wrote in volunteering to help me out. About 90 people inquired! As always I was overwhelmed by all the exceptional writers willing to assist. In addition to my friends who will be guest-blogging, I'm going to ask a handful of these applicants to contribute one guest post each. Should be good times.
