    Birthdays- 8/12

    Reds:

    Zach Cozart- 26

    Fred Hutchinson- The Bear; a fearsome and wonderful manager.

    Others:

    Bob Buhl- One of those guys whose baseball card I always got a million of when I was a kid. #3 starter on some really good Braves teams behind Spahn and Burdette.

    Harlond Clift- Underrated third baseman of the 1930s. There's a really good piece about him in the first edition of the Bill James Historical Abstract.

    Ray Schalk- HOF catcher, one of the honest Black Sox. His nickname was "Cracker" which you couldn't do today, probably...

    Christy Mathewson- Has anyone read his Pitching In A Pinch? It's supposed to be good, and I keep meaning to read it, but I never get around to it...
    "In baseball, you don't know nothin'"...Yogi Berra

    You need to move Mathewson to the Reds category!

    I'm glad Cozart is a part of this year's team and hope to see him thriving as a starter next year. Happy birthday, young man!
