Bits and pieces, Nov. 30

A review in The New York Times practically guarantees increased sales, so kudos to co-editors Tracy and Foer  and all the contributors to this fine collection.

Readers of the NJ Jewish News know I also do a weekly Torah haiku. Therefore I have to support my fellow poets. Here’s a haiku look at the players on the 2013 Hall of Fame Ballot from the Value Over Replacement Grit blog.

Rob Neyer of SB Nation doesn’t seem too enamored of Tony LaRussa’s memoir. I had the hardest time getting through the New U.S. Grant biography, so I can appreciate Neyer’s sentiments.

Not trying to do a rerun here, but I was cleaning up some web pages I had saved for later reference and came across this “event review” from Metsgrrl.com, which I don’t believe I ever used. It’s a discussion with Mets’ TV director Bill Webb from January 2011. The information is just as relevant and, in the Hot Stove season, pretty welcome, I daresay.

 

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
