  1. A couple of fairly recent baseball-related books I really enjoyed: https://www.amazon.com/Wax-Pack-Search-Baseballs-Afterlife/dp/1496218744 https://www.amazon.com/Mint-Condition-Baseball-American-Obsession/dp/0802145329/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1HKSTE305YOK0&keywords=mint+condition&qid=1656546043&s=books&sprefix=mint+condition%2Cstripbooks%2C72&sr=1-1
  2. For one thing when on third base you are taught to take a lead in foul territory but retreat to the base after a pitch in fair territory to make it harder for the catcher to get the throw through. Didn't look like Miranda did that.
  3. Pagan is our version of Don "Fullpack" Stanhouse (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don_Stanhouse).
  4. Or to paraphrase an old slogan: "Gray and Ryan and three days of cryin'. "
  5. Would be preferable to not rest both Buxton and Correa in the same game. The Division III school where I went to college had an outstanding hoop team with two All-Americans. The coach never had both on the bench at the same time unless the game was a blowout. (We won the Division III title my senior year.)
  6. Thought they would have pinch run for Sanchez when he reached based. If Gordon was the runner maybe he would have scored on Arraez's single.
  7. If memory serves Bobby WItt Sr pitched for Texas and a few other teams.
