Chronic pain more likely from wearing the tools of ignorance than from injuring Rose on that play

GLENN_BORGMANN_20614G__02124.1408142134.

He had a serious knee injury caused by Hal McRae. McRae had a reputation as a hothead and a dirty player and he also had several situations when he managed which were consistent with that. I don't remember the year, but I know it was very near the end of the season, when McRae was trying to score and Borgmann was fielding the throw to make the tag. McRae came in "sliding", more or less. His foot was planted squarely on the side of Borgmann's knee, and there is no doubt in my mind that it was intent to injure first, and intent to score second. I know this is off topic but this memory is triggered by any mention of Borgmann.

Putting Cleveland's magic number to win the division at 23 sure does make things look a heck of a lot better.

Watch out, if the Twins' magic number drops to exactly 11. :)

If we win the nightcap you can just move the log on the right to the left.

It will require more work after that.
