I’ve been busy this weekend working on a new project which hopefully you’ll all be able to see this week. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing about it.
One thing I did have a chance to do is break out my new copy of Settlers of Catan, by Mayfair Games. I had played the game once, and nearly won my first time, but more importantly I had a blast playing. Along with baseball cards, I collect and play war games. I own a lot of out of print Avalon Hill games, and my ten year project is to learn Advanced Squad Leader.
Anyway, I set up a game and ran through it solo. Fortunately, I won. I just hope my six month old son grows up to like these games.
In the meantime, if you want to check up on the most current news and happenings, here some places I recommend you go.
Blade finished his analysis of Cesar Geronimo in our ongoing debate on which of Sparky’s teams was the best. You can check it out at Reds Cutting Edge. I’m hoping to get my response up in the next couple of days.
Billfer has done a nice piece on the Tigers of the future, as he goes through their top 10 prospects. As always, he does a fantastic job of breaking things down.
And if you haven’t had your steroid fix yet, I highly recommend you check out Only Baseball Matters. Not only do you get a ton of facts, but you get a ton of passion.
I’ve also been trying to figure out Diamond Mind Baseball. A reader bought me a copy of the simulation, and I’ve been having fun with that as well.
