  1. I wanted to get a quick thread going about the great Orlando Cepeda, mainly because of one interesting fact: On Apr 15, 1958, Cepeda hit the first-ever major league home run on the West Coast. --- In 1993, the "Ted Williams Card Company" put out a set of 160 cards, which I was just given as a gift. My favorite thing about this set is that each card features a player - not necessarily a "great" player, but one who most baseball fans have heard of - and on the back, there are comments by Williams about that player which often feature one very interesting, unusual statistic (refer to Cepeda's 1958 home run). Pulling another card out at random, I pulled out Matty Alou, and the statistic says, "his 231-hit outburst in '69 ranks 28th all-time, and was the most since Ducky Medwick's 237-hit campaign in 1937." (Williams is obviously referring to the National League here, as Kirby Puckett put up 234 in 1988.) Really interesting things like that which you'd have to hunt for with a microscope on a stat sheet - I think it's awesome.
  2. Ha! I used to do this with the Orioles when Jon Miller was calling the games on the radio! Has there ever been a smoother announcer than Miller? I cannot believe Peter Angelos saw fit to get rid of this *Giant* of an announcer, pun intended, because I hope Angelos has suffered from his idiotic decision to release Miller, but Wangelos is so clueless that he probably doesn't even know Miller's in San Francisco now. I just got my blood boiling thinking about that poison dwarf. When you hate a sports owner more than I hate Dan Snyder, that's saying something, but I hate Angelos more than I hate any sports owner, even Marge Schott (who was just a stupid racist) or George Steinbrenner (who was just Donald Trump's identical twin). There I go, violating my own rules about personal insults. I'll change the wording of this to something more appropriate. Damn it.
  3. Congratulations to the 2014 World Series Champions, the San Francisco Giants. Madison Bumgarner is now 4-0 for his career pitching in the World Series, with a 0.25 ERA (1 run in 36 innings), and those 4 wins don't even include his 5 shutout innings pitching a Save last night (he did not get the win). That's Hall Of Fame stuff. That's three World Series Championships in five years (*much* more difficult to do in this era than ever before). Nothing more needs to be said, although I suspect someone might chime in and say some more.
