Today's links aren't letting a little thing like the utter lack of baseball news get in the way of having a good time ...

  • Really nice memorial of recently departed Bill Lajoie from Lynn Henning.

  • For you non-Insiders, Craig Calcaterra's got the executive summary of Dan Szymborski's case against Jack Morris ... or, more precisely, the case against the case for Jack Morris.

  • Meanwhile, Larry Granillo asks a really interesting question: Is collusion to blame for Jack Morris' case?

  • Every so often, I simply have to link to ESPN.com content just in case you somehow missed it, and Jerry Crasnick's great work with Jeff Bagwell is one of those every so oftens.

  • Beyond the Boxscore's Lucas Apostoleris with everything you always wanted to know about the bunt. Well, some of everything. This is just Part 1. We won't know what else we want to know until Part 2.

  • Crashburn Alley's Bill Baer asks a good question: Are playing-time contract "incentives" actually bad for players?

  • King Kaufman blogs Game 7 of the 1960 World Series and ... Wait, strike that. King blogs the first inning of Game 7 of the 1960 World Series, and it takes him 2400 words. Hey, I'm not complaining.

  • Speaking of old film, it's just a start but what a start, as Craig Wright begins collecting ancient baseball video, beginning with Dazzy Vance, Ty Cobb, and Victor Starrfin.
