BBA Link Fest

Your faithful Flagrant Fan is the new president of the general chapter of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA). The poor blighters. Anyway, the general chapter is the chapter that features sites that don't just follow one team. They are generalists. As this writer well knows, it's a tougher row to hoe as it's much easier to build a following when a fan base comes built in. Presiding over these great members is an honor as there are terrific writers among this group that you should add to your daily list of must-read sites. What follows is a a list of links from some of their best stuff in the past week. Do this old Fan a favor and right click on the links and open the posts in a new tab.

Bryan (the other baseball writer in Maine) over at Replacement Level Baseball Blog ponders in prose on whether there is a regional bias in Hall of Fame selections. He might be on to something.

Blaine Bontz over at the Call to the Pen does a great job of summarizing the National League MVP contenders. So glad he included Joey Votto!

Daniel over at the always entertaining Ball Caps Blog likes what he sees of the new look Houston Astros. Not sure they are the wave of the future or just MLB on the cheap, but Daniel has a good take.

Diamond Hoggers pays worthy tribute to Vin Scully, the Dodgers' broadcaster in honor of Scully announcing he will be back next year for his 63rd season. Great job here!

Theo over at Hot Corner Harbor apologizes for not posting much lately and atones by giving us a great piece on Jim Thome. Worth waiting for!

Bill over at The Platoon Advantage is on a serious roll. His latest work renames the divisions in baseball much like the NHL divisions are named. Highly entertaining.

This links page will be a weekly feature and will appear here every Thursday.

Congrats on your ascension to chapter president. The opposition is already campaigning to thwart your dreams of a second term.

Seriously, though, thanks for taking the task, so to speak.
