Shandler: Nick Punto, Superstar

Never let it be said that I run from my mistakes.

About six months ago, I was lambasted for paying $19 to buy Nick Punto in Tout Wars. I tried to explain the concept of market forces in my April 3 column after the incident. But the Internet has been known to be a place in which the transgression gets more bandwidth than the explanation, and so "Nick Punto, $19" likely will go down in history as one of my all-time biggest megamisses.

Like Brad Fullmer. And Todd Ritchie. And Frank Castillo. Yes, I've been making mistakes for a very long time.
