2010-10-06 10:00:002010 Playoffs Day OneEver since Ben brought up Pena's scoop, I've got the Rangers version of "Talkin' Baseball" stuck in my head: "Talkin' Baseball: Buddy, Sunny, and the Scoop." I was always confused by that last--until I realized he was talking about Al Oliver, I thought it was a reference to cat litter. (Steven Goldman)
