Bill James on the 100 best pitchers' duels of 2011

4

No real analysis or anything hard-hitting, just an interesting little list that I spent an hour or so reminiscing over this morning; looking up box scores, remembering fist pumps because some of these pitchers were on my fantasy team, or just recalling how much I enjoyed watching some of these games. Even three appearances by Pirate pitchers (#'s 8, 57, 74 respectively) and a negative comparison for Kevin Correia. Grantland's a little too kitschy for me most of the time, but I like some of the snark and had no idea Bill James ever wrote there. Bringing up another topic: this seems like a really odd thing for Bill James to produce. Anyone else get that feeling?
