    Warren Spahn is one of the most underrated pitchers of all time. Arguably the best lefty to ever play.

    Your dad was right….”all around” being the operative phrase.

    Willie’s health had been deteriorating for quite some time. RIP #24; you earned it.

    you still got to get that third strike even if the umpire makes a mistake in your view, which is what seemingly happened and they didn't.

    Anyone watching the game between the Giants and Cardinals in Birmingham, AL? They had Reggie Jackson in the booth for a little bit. 

    Probably more people at this game than at an A's home game :lol:

    This is what people are talking about.

    Reggie was my first favorite ballplayer.  I never heard him talk about this.  Very powerful story.

    I am. I bought one of his game used bats before the season started. I thought “MAYBE he’ll do something someday.” guess what? the 2017 first round pick has finally seemed to find his groove.

    my giants suck, tho.

    Didn't even know what it was until the youngins who work for me showed me yesterday. Sure enough, my always listening phone apps led me to the memes in no time.

    They really need to put in a ball strike challenge system. These umpires are a bad joke.
