Marc, thatís the joy of baseball.....the creating of records to be broken. I think it was in Major League that the Uke played that up. But you are right with the Yanks ( and Dodgers and Giants ) history itís hard to find something unique.

So true, Rp. Still, one of my earliest real memories was being tossed up in the air on Oct. 3rd, 1951. I still have fear of heights ................. but have been a Giants fan ever since.

So.......it is possible this season to have 4 teams with 100 wins and 4 with 100 losses. MLB states the number of home runs is not the ball, but check out the home runs in the minor leagues.....also up.....I guess those clubs have analytics as well.........

On this day, back in 1969, Willie Mays became the 2nd player in MLB history to reach 600 home runs.

With his nine strikeouts last night, Madison Bumgarner now has 203 strikeouts this year, giving him four career 200+ strikeout seasons.

The four 200+ strikeout seasons ties him for the second-most in SF-era (1958-pres.) history with Tim Lincecum and Gaylord Perry.

Iím a moderate purist....but Iíve come to see replays as game delayers in any sport where they are used. That said, umpires are as integral to the essence of baseball as are the players. MLB is going down the wrong road here and are going to ruin the game....you might as well watch a video game.

While most pundits are saying it will be the Dodgers in the NL, Washington and St. Louis would scare me if I was a Dodger. The Yanks need to look at Houston and Oakland. This might be an interesting playoff with the big guns going down early. I donít think my Braves have the pitching staff to compete in this soirťe....hoping they do but they have been losing games they should have won....really should have won the NL but didnít....that is a trend thatís hard to shake.
