Some links from around the Reds blogosphere….

Blue Collar Baseball notes that Sean Casey may be retiring from baseball. Redleg Nation wishes The Mayor all the best. He’s one of my personal favorites, and he was always a great representative of the Cincinnati Reds organization.

–Justin has done a quick and dirty analysis of shortstops in trying to answer the question of whether Barry Larkin belongs in the Hall of Fame. Larkin does well in the analysis; Davey Concepcion, not so much.

–Doug has some notes from the recent chat with BA’s JJ Cooper on the Reds system.

–Jonny Gomes loves Charlie Hustle.

Daedalus says the Reds have a “quit at no cost attitude.” Heh. Plus, that’s a lot of ifs.

–Finally, remembering Billy Werber.
