2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does Kansas City's ravaging of its interleague foes tell us anything important about the balance of the leagues, or is it just a happy little sample-size fluke for a KC and AL fan to enjoy?
(BL from Bozeman, MT)
More the latter than the former, although I do wonder if there's a chance that Trey Hillman's more comfortable without the DH or something. It'll be worth looking at the boxes to see, but frankly, I didn't think the Royals were condemned to awfulness this season. So, they learn that Tony Pena Jr. isn't a solution--they really already knew that, no differently than when they futzed around with the Buddy Biancalana and Angel Salazar types before getting Kurt Stillwell. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-03-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Watching Aqualino Lopez come out of the bullpen in a tie game begs all sorts of existential questions, but none more than this: Throughout baseball history, who are the age-gate cheaters that never got caught? Fernando is too easy. Ernie Banks? Buddy Biancalana?
(mchertoff from OHS)
Tommy Henrich. Played two years younger than he actually was. Tommy is still out there, btw. God bless, Old Reliable! (Steven Goldman)
