retail news in context, analysis with attitude

I've found a new book, "The Baseball 100" by Joe Posnanski, which was given to me by a friend, to be surprising and informative as it makes the case for the 100 greatest baseball players of all time.  That's one of the best things about baseball - everything is debatable, and we take pleasure in the arguments.  For example, one of the players identified by the author - as the fifth greatest player of all time - is Oscar Charleston, someone who I'd never heard of.  And yet, the case is persuasive.  I learned something.

The business lesson, however, come from Mike Mussina, the Orioles and Yankees pitcher, who teaches us about what's important, and what is not.
