Old Timer

The Pittsburgh Pirates are in town to play the Rockies. Both the Rockies radio and TV teams have claimed that Pirate Lastings Milledge wears number 85 "because that was the year he was born."

That would make him 1,924 years old.

The baseball media in Denver is about as bush league and clueless as it gets.

I don't know what annoys me most about Renck and the rest of the idiots. First is the idea that the difference between the outcomes of the first two games of the Pirate series was the Rockies attitude. Clearly the difference was that Jimenez was unhittable.

Second is the grammatical sloppiness: "Earlier in the season, this is when Jimenez would make a critical mistake"

Third is the thoughtless use of sportswriters cliches such as: "To advance, these are the kind of games they have to win". What kind are those. This was followed by "That has become rather predictable since June 4 as they have gone a baseball-best 43-19. What has become rather predictable?

I started legally drinking in 85. That was also my first year with Bedrock Giants season tickets. Mickey Marble was the great slugger back then.
