    This seems to make more sense than our guy Chris Snow going from newspaper to general manager, but it still is interesting.

    There's some funny stuff in "The Extra 2 Percent" about how the Tampa Bay Rays are so secretive that when they poach stats guys from some of the baseball sites, the writer has to write cryptically to readers about "a great opportunity" and not identify in any way what job he's taking.

    Guess the Grizzlies aren't that way.

    It'd be fun to look back and see what Hollinger has written about the picks, signings and trades that led to the construction of the current Grizzlies, who of course are looking like a threat to win the West. He usually comments on most moves so I figure he's written about most of their moves. I think he wrote that it was a mistake letting Mayo go, who's lighting it up in Dallas.

    Neither are any of the baseball teams, anymore.

    Hell, the Astros have hired at least three Baseball Prospectus writers just this offseason. And Luhnow himself announced at least one of them on Twitter.

    To me, this is almost as significant as the Red Sox hiring Bill James as a consultant. That turned out pretty well.

    One more reason not to feel bad about not having Insider. Good for him.

    Should read "John Hollinger and his scary eyes go from ESPN to . . ."

    I'd be remiss if I didn't remark upon a great opportunity for a fellow Wahoo.
