Russ Keeps You Guessing

You may disagree with Russ Smith's latest takes on the DH (adopt it NL!), interleaue play (scrap it MLB!), throwback jerseys (enough already!), Barry Bonds (sign him, Boston!), ballpark food (keep it simple, stupid!), and instant replay (pass!), but you have to give him credit for keeping you guessing. I've been reading his stuff for a few months now, and just when I think he's a radical, he lauds something traditional, and just when I think he's bordering on Luddite, he bangs the drum for something progressive.

I think most folks' opinions are scattered across baseball's ideological spectrum, but maybe not so wildly across it as Russ' are.
