Rarely do we post link dumps on Pittsburgh Lumber Co. these days, so I suppose you can consider this to be a special occasion. In any case, check out some work that Randy and I did around the Most Valuable Network.
This week’s edition of The Last Page, MVN’s home for feature-length sportswriting, spotlights an article Randy wrote “about the great Roberto Clemente, [that] attempts to quell the call to have his number universally retired.”
There is no doubt that Roberto Clemente was a great ballplayer and a great humanitarian. Since his tragic death, however, much of his life has been spun toward a description of perfection, making him a nearly mythic figure. Some sportswriters have continually misstated the facts of some of his career and glossed over the rough spots in his personality to make it seem that he was well thought of by all who crossed his path.
Today also marks the launch of MVN Radio, a live stream that you can tap into using a variety of media players. The sports talk starts at 3 p.m. EST with The Pitch and continues on until I make my hosting debut at 9 p.m.
We’ll yap about all things hardball on Full Count for about an hour. We’re live every weekday in the same time slot, so feel free to drop by and say hello.
