JoPo Debuts 'The Baseball 100' Epic Cover

One of the greatest sports writers to emerge from Kansas City has a highly anticipated work coming soon to bookshelves.

Hope and not hype for a great read . . . The cover debuts this week via social media:

The Baseball 100 By Joe Posnanski

Deets . . .

An instant classic of baseball literature and a must-read for any fan, The Baseball 100 is a one-of-a-kind work by award-winning sportswriter Joe Posnanski that tells the story of the game through the remarkable lives of its 100 greatest players. In the book’s foreword, Pulitzer Prize winning commentator George Will marvels, “Posnanski must already have lived more than two hundred years. How else could he have acquired such a stock of illuminating facts and entertaining stories about the rich history of this endlessly fascinating sport?”

Our KICK-ASS TKC READERS note . . . "At least 2 KC players on the list. Satchel Paige and George Brett. Don't forget that Reggie Jackson started with Kansas City Athletics."

No one cares. The MLB has become too political. Moving the All-Star Game from largely minority Atlanta to almost all-white Denver was a big mistake and greatly hurts the minority vendors and workers in Atlanta. Stacey Abrams screwed up and tried to backtrack on the issue after urging the move but now is lying about the entire series of events.

@9:12. I see where you come from but not everybody is ruled by politics. You may not get that impression from TV but some people still enjoy baseball as a way to relax and spend time with their families. People who are obsessed with politics only ruin the game for themselves. The great American pastime has endured far more tumultuous times than the current era.

The Nazis have taken over the MLB.

As the "woke" crowd slowly and quietly slips its hand around your neck, don't cry out. Accept it as your fate as you enjoy your $12 cheesy nachos and $8 Mega Coke at the ballpark.

9:12 is this the same Stacy abrams that claimed for two years the election was stolen from her? Racist white supremacists stole it from her. Thought so, stupid bitch is a typical dimwit politician, they start a cause without any plan or idea what will happen next, the current resident at the White House is a prime example, bidumb let hundreds of thousands of illegals into the country without a clue what to do with them.

There are 4000 kids living in cages at the border that were designed for 250, see, they were so hell bent on changing Trumps policies that they didn't even think about what would happen when they did, no clue whatsoever, this is the whole dimwit party.

The whole world sees it and is laughing their asses off.

As the woke political crowd wraps it's hands around your neck and slips it's hands in your pockets try not to cry out. After all you will already be upset about paying 14 dollars for a flat beer and 20 dollars for bad food on a working persons wages while watching millionaires play a child's sport and lecture you about politics.

I saved a lot of money by not going to any games last year. I play on doing the same this year as well. That is more money for home renovations, my car, my garden and vacations. Baseball and football have become an after thought.

11:02 still hasn't learned how to use a comma.

We do, Dr. Chimpy. What are you scared of? Give us those hot takes on CoVID! It's hilarious when you try to have an actual informed opinion.

It's funny when people like 11:02 try to make fun of others' English when they can't properly punctuate a sentence.

11:41 is wrong -- again. No comma goes after "English" in that sentence. He gets another "F" for his use of commas because he's so stupid about how to use them. Gets the sh*t knocked out of him again and again by doubling down on the subject. Glutton for punishment.

Dr. Chimpy thinks there should be a comma after "store" when he says, "I'm going to the store when it quits snowing." It's the equivalent sentence construction. What a dummy.

Dr. Chimpy, please use some more sentences with commas so we can make fun of you. Please, please, please.
