An Excerpt from a recent edition of the Joe Sheehan Newsletter

For reasons that aren't completely clear, Ned Colletti never addressed his bullpen in-season, and that neglect is coming home to roost in October. Scott Elbert was a excellent reliever once and he may be again, but right now he's a guy coming off an injury who wasn't even that good in the minors this year. Using him in a tied playoff game is a cry for help. Rostering him is a cry for help.


During an impromptu Twitter Q&A last week, someone asked how many subscribers the newsletter has. I answered, "~1350", to which they someone else wondered, "What are the other 32,550 people doing?" It was a reference to the difference between the number of Twitter followers I have and the subscriber number.
