Ernie Banks

In an era long since mired in big money, performance enhancing drugs and "professionals" who simultaneously treat it like it's no more than a job, but then act like prima-donnas anyway, it is sad to hear of the passing of yet one more who played and treated the sport as it was meant to be, always having fun and remembering that it was first and foremost a game.

1931 - 2015

Rest in peace, Ernie.  The good news is that there IS baseball in heaven. The bad news is that you're starting at Short today.  Have fun, and "Let's play two."

Hall of Fame Results out tomorrow!

No politics tonight. BASEBALL time!



In additon to John Smoltz, I'd like to wish the best of luck to the rest of my ten picks: Randy Johnson, Craig Biggio, Mike Piazza, Pedro Martinez, Curt Schilling, Fred McGriff, Jeff Bagwell, Lee Smith and Alan Trammell.

And yes, I'm observing the BWAA's current practice of snubbing those most associated with PED usage, but Roger Clemens, Mark McGawire, Sammy Sosa and Barry Bonds would have my vote otherwise, and will probably have my vote eventually, once we've put that all behind us.

Good luck to everyone, especially Trammell, with only one ballot remaining, and Don Mattingly who will appear on the ballot for the final time.

I'm certainly no Keith Olbermann, but I get by. ;)

BTW, for those who don't know, ERA+ = leagueERA / ERA x 100. (For example an ERA+ of 120 is 20% better than the league average.)

...and to anyone STILL scratching their heads, ERA = Earned Runs / Inning Pitched x 9.
