Being left-handed often means having or taking a different view of things. Partly because most people are right-handed. Partly because leftyness is sometimes given a negative connotation (a left-handed compliment, out in left field, leftist, leftovers…). In baseball, being a “crafty lefty” is actually a left-handed compliment.
A “situational lefty” in baseball is a pitcher who comes in to the game at some point for a specific purpose, generally to get out a left-handed batter (because, presumably, one is probably not as good against most right-handed batters).
I am left-handed. I’m proud of it. Lefties notice lefties, by the way. Right?
In this blog I will write mostly about baseball, and particularly fantasy baseball. I will not write about all of the game, or only about the sport. I will choose to write about specific [pause] situations. I will also periodically write about other, non-baseball [pause again] situations.
I do, sometimes, take a different view of things. I like to. I am a lefty.
I hope you find it all, of course, even-handed.
