If the season ended today, the Royals and Pirates would both make playoffs. They’ve NEVER made the postseason in the same year.

Godspeed, Robin Williams.

Today has been a lousy day. Many people whose work I absolutely adore lost their gigs at Sports On Earth today. This was a surprise to me, to say the least. I am not one of those losing my job today. This makes it difficult for me to say anything; as someone who has been laid off literally dozens of times, I know there isn’t anything someone who is staying can say to someone who is going that doesn’t sound awful and patronizing. Sports On Earth is going to continue, and I, along with the others staying, will do our best to do a great site, but it won’t be the same, obviously. All I can say is that I’m sad and that I miss them already and I will read them everywhere they go forever.

Happy 104th!

When this lady was born, the Giants were in New York, their leading hitter was Fred Snodgrass (.321) and Christy Mathewson went 27-6. The team finished second to the Chicago Cubs who won 104 games, coincidentally.

Pirates’ Jordy Mercer hit a homer at AT&T Park…which wasn’t even the coolest part.
