Joe Posnanski is Senior Writer for the new, yet unnamed, joint venture between The USA Today Sports Group and Major League Baseball Advance Media. He calls it "Project X" because that makes it sound cool in a 1960s spy movie kind of way. He's hoping that it will actually be cool in a 2012 kind of way. The project should be unveiled in May, and launched this summer. Details will be provided on the blog. Posnanski was Senior Writer at Sports Illustrated from 2009 to 2012
