San Francisco Giants link dump, 9/7

Thearon W. Henderson

This is a small link dump this weekend in honor of Yusmeiro Petit. It's a petit link dump. Get it? Cool.

Thoughts on Yusmeiro Petit - Minor League Ball
What's better than an eight-year-old discussion about Yusmeiro Petit, the prospect? An eight-year-old discussion in the comments asking if the Mets would dare trade him to the A's for Barry Zito. Oh, what a strange world we live in.

Andrew Baggarly nails this article on Petit's night. Don't forget about the auto-play video, though. I usually do when I'm in a library or coffee shop.

Browsing the sports section of SkyMall - SBNation.com
From occasional contributor Bill Hanstock, a horrifying look into the sports of SkyMall. If you have a mancave, there might be something here for you. Also, if you have a mancave, make sure you stay down there as much as possible. Don't come up unless you really need something.

Freeman has emerged as legit MVP candidate | Atlanta Braves Blog / David O'Brien

On the Braves' last road trip, a national baseball writer and a St. Louis writer both mentioned to me that Freddie Freeman would probably be in their top five for National League MVP, and both said it with a tone of surprise.

This is included because Brandon Belt and Freeman are having similar seasons. When you adjust for park, they're eerily identical. One is a "legit MVP candidate" and the other guy still makes talk-radio callers upset. Oh, what a strange world we live in.
