Shoals is on of the guys from the Darko Liberation Front. In this interview, almost two years old, he extols the virtues of Ritter and Honig’s The 100 Greatest Baseball Players of All Time. I’ve never read this book. Bill James pans it, but I should give it a shot. I’ve enjoyed other stuff by the two authors; especially The Glory of Their Times. Shoals goes on about the sections devoted to Pete Reiser and Herb Score. This might partially explain the Free Darko philosophy.
