That's always in there and I cited it specifically when writing about Judge.

Will you be going to Changing Hands in Phoenix or Tempe anytime soon for a signing?
Keith Law

I think I'll do one there in October when I'm out for fall league - I've discussed it with Changing Hands and they're game, but we haven't fixed a date yet.

I thought Allen Cordoba would log a few dozen PA and be terrible. Is he doing better than you thought?
Keith Law

Absolutely.

Too bad you can't find time to stop by the Twins broadcast booth. They seem to spend half their time talking about errors, batting average, and the virtue of sacrificing runners over.

In Smart Baseball I mention the irony of Bert Blyleven, who is only a Hall of Famer because of sabermetrics and the lobbying of people in the sabermetrics community, hating sabermetrics.

Of the HS outfielders potentially at the top of the draft - Royce Lewis, Austin Beck, Jordon Adell - who do you think has the best hit tool now and hit tool potential?
Keith Law

Lewis now & potential. Adell probably has the highest overall ceiling, though; I think he's the best athlete of the three by a long shot.

Love the book! Is there anything I/We here in Austin could do to get you down here for a signing?

I'll end with this even though there a lot of great questions in the queue - I have to get a move on here. If you want me to do a signing in your city, it has to come from a venue there (usually an independent bookstore) that asks HarperCollins. If I can work it into my schedule - I'm in MSP for ESPN, and doubling up with the signing - we'll work to make it happen. But the inquiry has to come from the store or, as with Atlanta, a venue where I can do a talk or Q&A or whatever. I'm definitely doing signings in Toronto (6/26), Miami (7/8), and Harrisburg (7/15), tentatively in Brooklyn, Indianapolis (GenCon), Phoenix (October/AFL), and Philly (November, PAX Unplugged). I'm happy to do more; Tuesday night was fun, and while I admit to some raised anxiety, it went great and the readers were all great to talk to afterwards. And I didn't even share the best story of all - maybe in the next newsletter.

Thank you all for all of your questions, for reading, and for al the kind words on the book and on my last newsletter. I am planning to go to Louisville next week for the ACC tournament and may have to move or skip the chat, so please stay tuned.
