Alcantara actually stole two bases - the second when he got on via a fielder's choice later in the game.

Looks like someone's idea of a funny bit that fell horridly flat which was bound to happen since it involved personality black hole Joe Buck.

Should read - the Bears are, aside from Seattle, San Francisco, Green Bay and New Orleans, probably the NFC favorite.

Koufax wasn't on the Dodgers because he was too good for the minors. He might have benefitted from some time in the minors.

One can only imagine the excitement of watching Javier Baez bat .211 with 11 Hrs and 86 Ks in the second half in meaningless games..

I didn't think the '69 Cubs lost due to day games, they lost because they had no bench, no bullpen and only three starters.

Has rain historically been a problem in the Florida State League or have weather patterns changed more recently?

The Cubs may have cost themselves a couple of runs - one on Castro's caught stealing which I think was followed by a couple of hits.

I think it is a coincidence that ESPN's coverage of soccer began after Olbermann left. He was on-air talent, not the president of programming.

Careful, Al. A few weeks ago I talked about the couple of games with high run outputs skewing the run differential and caught hell.
