Rickey hangs 'em up.: Rickey could probably put up a .375 OPS in his sleep, but instead, Rickey's calling it a career.

Babe Ruth's lost home run: In 1918, Ruth hit what would be called a walk-off homer today. But back then, the rules called it a triple. And, except for a brief period in the late 1960s, it's been a triple ever since. Talk about an asterisk.

Five Life Lessons Learned at Wally Moon's Summer Camp:: You'd think that baseball camp would be like a Tom Emansky video, but the fact is, you can get real life lessons out of it, too. Great human interest piece.

I went to the fight, and an Arena Football game broke out.: It's not the Malice in Auburn Hills, but it's still pretty ridiculous.

White Sox and Cubs brawl.

The slide was clean. The let-me-jam-my-shoulder-into-your-chest-as-you-catch-your-breath was not.

Babe Ruth's lost home run

diastematic -- the rule changed early in Ruth's career.

Ying: Of course I don't mind. In fact, I'd probably have been better off finding one at a legit website. It would have prevented the ridiculousness that overtook this thread. But for those skeptics out there, I hope you appreciate the irony. Here I am, bemoaning the mistaken identity, and your response is that I am my doppleganger. Wonderful.

Babe Ruth's lost home run

He probably does have my name. There's a guy whose a sportswriter with my name, and there's a guy in my office with my name, and I have a cousin (distant -- 2nd cousin, I think) with my name, and I regularly get mail and email with my name. It'd hardly be the first time, but it would be up there among the more annoying.

Cavs 2

The Mvs are good. Isn't their fault that they're a 4 seed -- they were a game or two from being a #1.

I didn't write it. I got spammed by them but have their feed in my RSS reader, and think it's interesting.

Fantasy baseball is going to trial!

It's unlikely this will go to trial. And I wonder why the story -- which has been bantering around for months -- just hit the NYT now.
