New Link: Just A Bit Outside

A new link now on the Continuum: “Just A Bit Outside”. From Fox Sports, it’s a site somewhat in the vein of Grantland, Sports On Earth, or SI’s MMQB site, only unlike those, this one only focuses on baseball. Already it has some neat stories up, so check it out.

Some stuff from the past week you should probably read

The Midseason GIF Awards.

And, of course, my look at Mr. Go.
