There's my lunchtime reading sorted!
Joe Posnanski is awesome.

I met him and Whitlock a couple of times when I was out in Kansas. They were at the KC Star at the same time.

Were they cool? I'm a big fan of JoePo.

Hey, smart people: Where can I find team ERA separated by starters and relievers?

@Orel - Fangraphs offers that:

Starters: http://www.fangraphs.com/teams.aspx?pos=all&stats=sta&lg=all&type=0&season=2010&month=0

Relievers: http://www.fangraphs.com/teams.aspx?pos=all&stats=rel&lg=all&type=0&season=2010&month=0

@Orel
They are pretty much exactly how you imagine them from reading their writing. Whitlock is sharp and funny, but a jerk. He was definitely in the "If it's free, I'll take 3" camp of sportswriters

Posnanski was a good dude. You knew you were in good hands when he was covering your stuff

Thanks, Jason!

FB: Good to know.

rbn goes Jim Tracy:

Did I get the chills? I guess you could say that.

Could I read the entire article with clear vision? Well, that would assume my eyes didn't water when JoePo mentioned the son dragging his dad over to see Vin's star on the walk of fame.

Did I enjoy the article? What do you think?

That last paragraph is killer.
