Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending To Work: 11/13/15
I’m en route to LA as this goes live, via Virgin America Airlines.

It’s like a spaceship. Except not in space.
Anyways, I have nothing of importance to say so lets get right to this week’s list shall we?

5 Thoughts On Off-Season Baseball Training – Mike Robertson
My name is Tony Gentilcore, I’m known for training baseball players, and I approve this message. Mike hit a home run with this article. He threw it right down the pipe. You could say this article is “a can of corn” in terms of how applicable and easy the information is.
Too many baseball puns? My bad.
Suffice it to say his break down of the importance of the serratus anterior is worth the read alone.
