Seriously, since I tend to think that Merkle was made into a goat excessively (no surprise since this involves the Cubs somehow, if I can insert a completely uncalled for insult) I tried to soften this a little, although even "blunder" may bee undeserving.
The historically correct thing would have been to call him "Bonehead" Merkle, but I won't do that either.
