MLB Bullets Sends A Pinch-Hitter To The Plate

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Josh is away, but MLB Bullets carries on with a pinch-hitter.

Hey there. I'm Josh's fill-in on MLB Bullets. Be kind, won't you?

You're looking down here because every BCB linkpost ends with something familiar. Josh has his signature line, "And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster." Erik posts an interesting non-baseball-related link or two.

What I've found here is a non-baseball link, but it's baseball-related in a way, too. You might be familiar with the writing of Roger Angell, who's written about baseball for the New Yorker for many years, and who has also written several baseball books (all well worth reading, if you haven't).

Angell is now 93 years old. Recently, he wrote about growing old and anticipating death. It's well worth your time.
