    Sept 1, 1967 a reds pitching tragedy

    20 scoreless innings by the great Queen, Nottebart, Abernathy and Bob(Powder River) Lee blows it all. I am totally devastated by these developing events.

    But Bob Lee's from Ottumwa, Iowa home of the great Radar O'Reilly and Tom Arnold.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Do you think Tommy Harper was proud of his 0-9

    Alas, the future was bright as they would soon draft Timothy Grant, although in doing so they would pass on Rich McKinney

    Talent is God Given: be humble.
    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    I got my Tommy's mixed up.

    In the book "Ball Four", when Jim Bouton is traded to the Houston Astros, he is taught the Astros' unofficial team song - 'Proud to be an Astro'.

    Tommy Davis and Tommy Harper were both 1969 Houston Pilots. Davis, not Harper was traded to the Astros in late '69.

    My bad. I've been doing that a lot lately.

    That would be Seattle Pilots.
