POSTSCRIPT 2: Another feature on Brian Bannister, this time from The Seattle Times. Cerebral counter: add one.
Editor's note: IDWT's taking the next three days off for traveling. Please visit our sponsors (it doesn't have any) and partners (maybe he's referring to the links on the blogroll?) for Royals news, commentary and merchandise.
