Tommy Terrific would trade it all to be 24 again

Or maybe you had to grind until last pitch.


Looking on as R.A. Dickey completes one-hit masterpiece

Either way. Even if somebody, somewhere bested you, what matters most is that somebody, somewhere will never forget you.


Famous

And that, my friends, is what life’s all about.

    All’s im sayin is Davey Johnson better not try any fancy new insults on Showalter cuz i don think Buck will take to kindly to bein called “Wierd” or “Wuss” or “Clown” or even “Bro”. He might be taken by the spirit of Earl Weaver to unload a truckload of shit on them fuckers……. Curly W and all.

    Or do youse guys just wanna duke it out with somebody (anybody)?
