And if No Balls just strips them of the title like he should have, all of this avoided and the story goes away.........well everywhere except Houston anyway

Given the evolution of the GM position over the last few years, there's no reason she can't be outstanding.

Just finished replying to a friend's post on Facebook.  Her post was about the Cleveland Indians and how they named their team to honor Louis Sockalexis, a Native American player on the team (1897-1899).  It was my unfortunate duty to inform her that the story is a myth, that the Cleveland team as well as its fans did not in any way honor Sockalexis.

Every game, Sockalexis was taunted by fans in the stands.  In 1915, sixteen years after he left the team and Baseball, the owners Cleveland Spiders decided to change the team's name to the Indians.  They promoted the team as savage warriors, who were to be feared.  Not once did they mention Sockalexis.  Cleveland newspapers then printed many stories and cartoons that used blatant stereotypes about Native Americans and how they spoke and lived.

I hope that my friend reads all the info that I put on her post.  I hope that she can handle a friend saying that she's "wrong".  :eh:

Congrats to Howie Kendrick on his retirement.  Loved having him on my Angels and was happy he got his ring for DC.  He had a Wade Boggs and Tony Gwynn style early in his career.  Not quite as high as them average wise but finishing career .294 ain't bad.

"[Kurt] Schilling, in a lengthy letter to the Hall that he also posted to Facebook, asked to be removed from the writers' ballot next year.

"I will not participate in the final year of voting. I am requesting to be removed from the ballot. I'll defer to the veterans committee and men whose opinions actually matter and who are in a position to actually judge a player," Schilling wrote. "I don't think I'm a hall of famer as I've often stated but if former players think I am then I'll accept that with honor."
