Buy The Amazin' Avenue Annual

Eric Simon from Amazin' Avenue asked me to contribute a 1,500-word essay to the Amazin' Avenue Annual. I agreed, and then I typed "Armando Benitez is a doodyhead" 300 times. Though he appreciated the sentiment, he rejected my submission and asked me to provide a real essay. The topic: what it's like to watch a team win a championship when there were no guarantees they would even finish .500 before the season started. So for all you Grant completionists -- the guys and gals who trade live shows, make homemade Grant shirts, and bid on my high school poems on eBay -- this one's for you. It's also for people who like baseball writing, too, with Joe Posnanski, Will Leitch, and Jeff Sullivan also contributing. Buy it.
