Welcome to the site that goes along with the upcoming book, “Starting IX: A Franchise-by-Franchise Breakdown of Baseball’s Best Players” by Jim Turvey. The book looks at the best player at each position in each franchise’s history, and spins off from there.
While you’re here, check out some of the articles, all by yours truly, with some of my favorite work I’ve written as the Sports Editor at the Crookston Daily Times; some thoughts on pop culture and politics; and excerpts from the upcoming book.
If you’re wondering the level of production, basically imagine the Word document Ryan opened up for Creed on The Office, but even lower-tech. Like if Robert Pollard (circa 1993) created a sports/pop culture/politics blog… Have fun!
If you have any questions about when the book will come out, and how it was be possible to get a copy upon its release, send an email to Jim.firstname.lastname@example.org.
