Isn't it kind of pitiful to be pitiful in a pitiful division where only one team has a winning record?


To be honest I can think of a lot worse things in life.

Was listening to Paper Lace "The Night Chicago Died"

The first line is "Daddy was a Cop... On the East Side of Chicago"

Is there an East Side of Chicago? Wouldn't that be Lake Michigan?

Here's a silly question - has there ever been a player traded around the deadline from a team who played a suspended game to the other team playing that game.And the next day when finishing that suspended game plays against his former team thereby appearing for both teams in the box score.

 

I guess theoretically it could happen.

Good Question... If possible it would be one of those quirks that make baseball wonderful.

Lol ... yep.  Or ... could just be any area of town along the lake shore ... but that's a pretty ridiculous line as there isn't an 'East side' like there is a 'North Side,' a 'West Side' and a 'South Side.'

Lol, I get used to having it on mute because it drives the dog nuts when the computer talks at her.

Heh ... yeah, those critters are sensitive.  :)

 

I also sometimes watch the game on my computer ... so ... sound, sigh ...

Fun fact, my great grandpa was a bootlegger for Al Capone.

I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.
