It’s a bummer that baseball is over, but I hope you all have an enjoyable and fun holiday all the same.
When we played, World Series checks meant something. Now all they do is screw up your taxes.
~Don Drysdale, 1978
Here’s a fun and catchy tune about the great Ozzie Smith. As the song states, Smith was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2002, his first year of eligibility. He was also elected to the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame with the inaugural class of 2014.
Royals pitcher Bret Saberhagen threw a five-hitter to defeat the St. Louis Cardinals, 11-0, on October 27, 1985. The victory came in Game 7 of the World Series, as the Royals won the Series, four games to three.
Well, at least the Peanuts gang gets to put one in the win column for a change.
The truth is that for those 86 long years when the Red Sox went without a World Series win, fans were not only in a recession, but trapped in a longstanding, deeply entrenched sports depression.
The World Series begins tonight! I think this will be an interesting one, featuring two old, old franchises currently located at opposite ends of the country. There’s going to be a lot of flying going on during this Series.
It could be an interesting Halloween night in Boston if this thing goes to Game Seven.
