I get having last night off, but is there a reason in the world why Game 1 can’t be played tonight? I mean a reason that doesn’t involve silly network decisions?
In the meantime: Robin Roberts reflects on the Whiz Kids and the Phillies of today. In his honor, and in honor of the 1950 series, Charlie Manuel should sit Cliff Lee for Game 1.
Also, lar has all kinds of fun with the 1950 series. Hey, if Jim Konstanty smokes Camels, why wouldn’t I smoke Camels too?
Note: the last game of the 1950 World Series was played on October 7th. People keep complaining about the postseason lasting so long, but at least we still have some baseball ahead of us in late October. What did those mopes in 1950 have to look forward to? The Chinese invasion of North Korea? The Rosenberg trial?
