      WHOA!!! CALM DOWN BIG FELLA!!! YOU'RE SPOOKING THE HORSES!!!!

      My attitude towards Munson changed a lot after I read his (posthumously published) autobiography...he was a pretty sharp cookie and a very good family man. Thurman worked extra hard to be a good dad because his father was emphatically not one of them, as I see it. I don't like it when people joke about his death because the guy left kids behind, and they were the exact reason he flew...to spend more time with them. I don't see him as having been a "nice" person, but he was a good one who could also play some serious ball.
      But, you gotta admit he was...well, you know...he wasn't in as good a shape as Fisk, I'll put it that way.

      • My favorite memory of Munson:
        At a game I attended in 1977, a young pitcher (some guy named Guidry) throws a pitch that bounces a few feet in front of the plate. Munson skillfully blocks it and keeps the runner on first. A couple of pitches later, Guidry does it again. Munson, true to his Gold Glove status, adroitly blocks it again. But this time he walks the ball back out to the mound and informs Guidry (in voice loud enough to be heard in Queens) that, if he does that again, he's gonna kick his ass. Then, without giving Guidry a chance to respond, he calmly turns and walks back to his position as if nothing had happened.
        Very fiesty. But that's Munson in a nutshell. And why he's always been my favorite Yankee.

            Jeez, at least your boys still have an excellent shot at making the playoffs...the Bosox are putting the peanut gallery out there to see if they can play!
            I feel like the O's have been incredibly lucky and their luck is going to desert them in the end.
            Who knows, but, hey, it's exciting to watch the suddenly competitive AL East (well, at least three teams...)!!!

                  Wow...I thought the O's luck was going to end after the top of the 8th last night, but they came back with three HRs in the bottom half!
                  Guess I should stop talking about luck and just say those guys have been playing really well lately. Did Mark Reynolds just get contacts or Lasik???

                      We'll talk about that if they both reach the ALCS... Until then, the Yankees have still NEVER lost a six-game (or better) lead for the division... <whew!>

                            Well they finished in last place, 26 GB the Yankees. You've got to be right!

                            What other explanation could there be? (Rhetoricalal)
