    Great piece. I don't know Amy, but I've really become a recent fan of her work.

    The luggage tags is a great detail.

    Great read. More convinced that Joyce would have been the right choice for SI Sportsmen of The Year.

    I like any writer who uses the word "belies"

    One of my favorite words.

    I'm not familiar with Amy. I will be looking forward to more of her work.

    Brilliant article.

    I'm in total agreement with this, but I think it should have been he and Galaraga. Have someone who speaks Spanish interview Galaraga at length, translate it, give it to Posnanski, have Pos interview Joyce at length, and then have him spin together a story about sportsmanship.

    I liked Layden's story about Brees a lot, but mostly because I really like Layden. But SI could have really gotten it right with Galaraga and Joyce together.

    If you're interested in reading more of Nelson's stuff, here she is on Rod Beck after he died.

    Amy seems to travel below the radar in Bristol land. I usually only come across her when her work is posted on here.

    She is a very talented writer. Also pretty good on tv when she has been on.

    She wrote the outstanding piece on the Angels pitcher who died as well.

    Great detail on that luggage tag...made me wonder who did that. The person at curbside/counter check-in? Some baggage handler down below? If the latter, that's even more impressive -- if not a little scary.
