I think I have started at least one of these a year most recent years. Since we are about to rip off 49 wins in a row, this is my chance. Don’t suck tonight boys.

Baseball birthdays August 5. Lots of Red Sox connections.

Carl Crawford. Maybe my least favorite player of all time. That neck tattoo just pissed me off.
John Wasdin. How did he win 39 games in the major leagues?
John Olerud- Nice player
Bobby Kielty.-

And let's not forget Eric Hinske, Reid Nichols, Fabian Gaffke, and Bob Daughters, who appeared in 1 game in 1937 and scored a run; his only MLB appearance. All born August 5.

So I'm watching on MLB.TV and the video feed just switched to the pirates-twins game, but the audio is still Eck, Remy, etc. What a year.

This conversation with Ellis Burks is awesome. Seeing the old clips is very cool. Looking forward to hearing more from Ellis going forwar!

So glad I wasn’t the only one. I got a bit of good vibe going on and thought I might be trippin’.
