c trent talks with Bill James.
I know several of you think James is the devil incarnate. I thought you might be interested in this interview.

2009 questions...the infield.
"At the end of 2008 Joey Votto was coming along like gangbusters. During the 08 draft the reds drafted a first baseman with their first pick. At the end of 09 will you want Yonder or Joey to be the reds first baseman of the future?" Tuff Gong was the only one that rose to the bait and suggested that Yonder... 3 Mar 2010 16:30
