Hi everyone! Apparently there's been some confusion of late, which is easy to understand — as the "10-man rotation" has been a part of the Ball Don't Lie package in consistent rotation since December of 2007. It's OK. Some of you in the comment sections, based on your grammar and reading comprehension, clearly weren't born then.

This is a "link dump." You've seen things like this on "web sites" for "years and years." It's a way to point out some of the better work done by our friends and favorites from around the "world wide web," giving you a link and brief description that hopefully entices you to click on the "uniform resource locater" (highlighted in blue) in order to further enjoy the free content all the participants below have provided.

It's not an article. It's not a column. It's something to help you enjoy your day further. Kindly regard, the 10-man rotation:

A look around the league and the web that covers it. It's also important to note that the rotation order and starting nods aren't always listed in order of importance. That's for you, dear reader, to figure out.
