Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
For baseball fans, I think it's safe to say that Baseball-Reference is the greatest thing since sliced bread (or at least since Retrosheet). Joe Pos sure likes it. Oh, and by the way, Pos is pretty damn good too. And so is this cat Prince Albert.
I imagine its hard for those who have grown up with b-r.com and retrosheet to imagine what life used to be like. Sometimes I do miss spending 30 minutes devouring the league leaders in the big list they used to publish on Sundays. But then I wonder how I ever lived without being able to look up splits and I don't miss the Sunday list quite so much.
Now the barkeep jes' says the joint has wireless and someone can use their iPhony thing to look it up on this baseball-reference place on the world wide intertubes. Then he tells us to pipe down.
it is hard to imagine life before br.
3 oh man i heard michael kay too - it really was disconcerting for a moment there. i heard him calling the picthes then describing the phillies uniform with the red hats with the blue star. oh michael kay.
3 I never thought Kay would allow anyone to take him out of context, but gotta admit I bust out laughing every time I see this:
Oh, that wasn't a shout out?
I see. Yeah, well I don't mind sayin' I can pretty useful myself sometimes...
Ok, I'm not nearly as useful as Baseball-Reference, or Retrosheet...
but let's see those invaluable data bases become sandwiches, french toast, that sorta thing.
Who are they playing again?
just who is James Loney?? not up on my NL rosters..my Cubs to the WS pick looking shaky already..
anyone else out there watching the game?
I'd like to see Torre win a WS again.
I wouldn't mind seeing the Rays win. Who ever expected the Rays would take the AL East?
4 "The exception to that is at first base, where it is faster to run through, since you can overrun the base." ---- Nope, still a bonehead.
This may be old news, but PeteAbe has a 40 minute audio of Cashman's press conference.
Simply put: MUST HEAR!
When I hear or see this man, I love the guy.
We need a thread just to discuss him and what he said.
Yeah!! nice to see some fire coming out
7 For the record, I thought it was a shout out to you, Sliced (take 'em where you can get, my friend).
Go Dodgers! LOL.
It was fun. They broke 1000 posts, easily. And we all enjoyed Manny's homer.
Thanks for hanging out with us, btw, RIY. :-)
