Hi, my name is Joe Posnanski. I write stuff. Fun fact: Leo Tolstoy also wrote stuff. Yes, Tolstoy stuff was realistic fiction that serves as a guidepost in our search for the meaning of life while my stuff is about Snuggies and baseball and the real villain of the movie "A Few Good Men." This is why my Patreon is doing way better than Tolstoy's.

Also: Tolstoy did not have a podcast. I have two: (1) A bi-weekly podcast called "The PosCast" with "The Good Place" creator Michael Schur. We talk about meaningless things; (2): A podcast called Passions in America, where I interview people about their passions.

So what I'm I offering here? Salvation. 

No, not really, that just sounded good. I'm counting down the 100 greatest baseball players of all time. I'm also counting down 100 of the coolest baseball people of all time, many of them fictional. I'm offering random essays about sports, life, Hamilton, family and whatever happens to come to mind. I'm also arguments with Mike about stupid things like the awesomeness of pie. Mike is anti-pie. It's a problem. 

The tiers should be pretty self-explanatory. I guess there are a couple of things to mention. You will notice that there are Discord benefits at the Brilliant Reader level and above. I'm still figuring out how this Discord thing works. And you will see that at the Soul of Baseball level, you get various special benefits for down the road, when I put together the Baseball 100 and Shadowball 100 stories in a book (or two) in 2020 (when the project will be done).

At the Passions in America level, I'm inviting you to be part of a small, special and exclusive Passions in America focus group where you will answer questions and offer thoughts about the role passion plays in your life. You get to be a significant part of this project going forward. 

Thank you for reading this. I began this Patreon in August 2018 with no idea what I was doing. And now, after some time, I still have no idea what I'm doing. But we're getting there.
