I’ve said it in the comments and on Twitter, but I just want to say it again: thanks, everyone, for all the positive comments on the Periodic Table of Hall of Famers. I’m glad everyone seems to be enjoying it so much (and, yes, there have been some great suggestions that I might want to incorporate in the future).

Good friends Bill and The Common Man from the Platoon Advantage – you know, from our (generally) bi-weekly podcast – asked me to write a guest post this week, and my post is now online. You may not remember, but thirteen years ago today was one quite active day for the Hot Stove. Not only was the Expansion Draft for the Diamondbacks and Devil Rays that day, but it also saw some significant wheeling-and-dealing involving Pedro Martinez going to Boston and a few other near-Hall of Famers switching teams.

It was definitely an interesting day. Go check out my guest post at the Platoon Advantage and let us know what you think.
