I caught most of the games at Shea this weekend. I actually went out there with Rich Lederer, his son Joe, and Repoz on Friday night. We sat around and watched it rain for an hour-and-a-half and then split when they announced no game would be played. Anyhow, it was nice to see Junior Griffey, who I don't catch all that often, being an American League guy. Nate Silver had a fine piece on Junior for the Times yesterday. Check it out.
Also, thanks to Jon Weisman for pointing out Paul DePodesta's new blog (with a clever name), It Might Be Dangerous...You Go First, which rightly celebrated Greg Maddux's 350th career win. Man, I just hope Maddog can last through the end of next season as it would be tremendous to see him pass Warren Spahn (363) on the all-time wins list. As for the title of DePo's blog, the first movie that comes to mind is "Young Frankenstein." But it sounds like such a stock line, I'm sure it was in one the old Bob Hope movies or Warner Bros. cartoons. Hmmm.
