Oops!Posted by John Brattain
I had a little bit of synaptic flatulence in the article: Rick Ankiel's Comeback that were caught my my sharp-eyed readers (I have readers! Who knew?) The Mel Queen that pitched with Johnny Lindell was the father of the Blue Jays pitching coach of the same name (I plead John 10:30 as my defense). Also, I have Joe Carter as hitting both 396 and 398 career HR. The correct total is 396.
So, thanks to all for the feedback and corrections. Don't blame the editing staff; because of me, our editors get overworked fairly often due to the differences in both Canadian and American spelling and grammar eh (and from me being me). It gives you an idea what I put the poor souls through. On the bright side (for them)--I'm probably buying them out of a few years in Purgatory.
