Sunday links and stuff

On Monday President Bush will introduce his nominee for the Supreme Court. Stop clicking. There is no link. It's just my guess.

Mark Steyn is brilliant, as always.

Betsy's Page is a great blog run by a teacher from North Carolina. She recently was interviewed by a mainstream paper which generated some new traffic. So as a service to the newbies, she did a review of her best columns since she started blogging. Check it out.

Yesterday, Mark Buehrle of the White Sox hit the Indians best hitter, Travis Hafner, with a pitch to the head. Later in the game he hit another Tribe batter. Prior to that game he had not hit a batter all year. In fact he has such good control that he has only walked 26 batters all year. I won't go so far as to say he hit Hafner in the face on purpose. I will say the Tribe batters better take it out on today's Chicago starter and put some runs on the board.

If true, this is big!
Marlins righthander A.J. Burnett will be traded to the Red Sox within a week, an MLB official said yesterday. Boston plans to sign Burnett to an extension.
So the Yankees get 39 year old Al Leiter and the Red Sox counter by getting Burnett who is in the prime of his career. Who does Steinbrenner fire for this?

Johnny Damon has hit in 28 consecutive games which puts him halfway to reaching Joe Dimaggio's 56 game hitting streak. David Pinto of Baseball Musings plays with math and examines how batting lead-off gives Damon more opportunities to extend the streak.

Oh yeah, Skip Bayless is a complete idiot.
