* The Mets played their 7000th game and passed 10,000 total doubles.

Passing 10,000 doubles is not an accomplishment for them. I need to invent a new word for this, so let’s call it an antiplishment. Actually, I already have a word for it. I can use the word I invented last year–longevitied (longevitied, v., to accumulate a total in a category merely by longevity, without being any good at it). But, I like antiplishment, too.

If the Mets were any good at hitting doubles, they would have reached 10,000 a few years ago. Worst 2B vs. the league average, since 1962–

The 2006 edition of the Complete Baseball Encyclopedia is available and is now shipping. Also, for the first time, there will be a subscription package available to get the encyclopedia updated every day during the 2006 season. The encyclopedia can be ordered at http://www.baseball-encyclopedia.com

“Lee Sinins’ Complete Encyclopedia is best reason yet developed to own a computer. I think I must own a copy of every baseball encyclopedia there is or ever was, and occasionally I find that I still need to pull out one of the others, but not very often; the Complete Encyclopedia covers 97% of my needs. Whether I’m working or playing, calculating or daydreaming, the Complete Encyclopedia pops up to help out. I turn it on in the morning; I turn it off when the house is on fire. Otherwise, I’m using it.”–Bill James
