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)
Pee Wee Reese
mner (winner - best name in the starting lineup)
Dick Sisler (son of HOFer George Sisler)
Only George Shuba and Bobby Morgan are still alive.
Torres [is] an excellent baserunner. Especially interesting since he grew up without shoes.

Universal Baseball Necessities: More Vin Scully
There is a petition that is aiming to make it so Fox lets Vin Scully call one more World Series. I don’t sign many petitions, but this one is IMPORTANT damn it. Click here or on the picture above to sign. Go ahead and re-blog this as well.
