I’ve decided to use a new tool to pick the World Series winner

Announcer I Like Best

Using the AILB analysis I pick the Dodgers, giving me 8-14 more Vin Scully-voiced games.

Coincidentally the AILB ends up with the same result for 95% of all fans who do not have a team in the playoffs. The other 5% find Joe Castiglione charming.

Vin Scully will return to the Dodgers booth for 2014 - his 65th season.
The starting lineup from Scully’s first game in the radio/TV booth with another legend, Red Barber:
April 18, 1950 - Shibe Park (Philadelphia)
Dodgers
Pee Wee Reese
George Shuba
Duke Snider
Jackie Robinson
Carl Furillo
Gil Hodges
Bobby Morgan
Roy Campanella
Don Newcombe
Phillies
Richie Ashburn
Granny Hammner (winner - best name in the starting lineup)
Eddie Waitkus
Roy Ennis
Willie Jones
Dick Sisler (son of HOFer George Sisler)
Mike Goliat
Andy Seminick
Robin Roberts

Only George Shuba and Bobby Morgan are still alive.

Here, as an early Christmas, late Hanukkah, and any other time gift, is the Dodgers 1959 season as viewed through the lens of Vin Scully. The above recording is side one of the record and here’s the link to listen to the side two. I also didn’t bother trying to clean up any of the vinyl scratches and pops as I thought it gave it a warm, authentic feeling. Maybe you’ll enjoy them. 

And if you’re a person who wants to listen to both on the go, here is the album available for download to your personal computer or on-the-go device product. Now don’t say I never did anything for you. 

Have a great holiday filled with music, laughter, and plenty of Egg Nog! 

Have a Scully Vinmas.

Torres [is] an excellent baserunner. Especially interesting since he grew up without shoes.

Don’t do it for me, do it for yourself.
