A complete kinescope of the NBC telecast of Game 7 of the 1960 World Series has been found in Bing Crosby’s private vault. (“Along with several of his classic child beatings.” — J. Elvis Weinstein)
MLB Network will apparently be showing it later this year, giving it the same treatment they gave Don Larsen’s perfect game: [...]
While I was suffering through the Cubs’ 12-0 drubbing at the hands of the Angels today, I coined a new term: in telling my seatmate, Michelle, how much I appreciate the MLB Network’s Saturday night games, I realized that it really should be called “The Lame of the Week.”
Because it’s true: for years, Stacey [...]
Watch this now before MLB realizes it exists online: the last 10 minutes or so of Game 1 of the 1988 World Series.

Joe Buck: Manny Manny Manny. Manny Manny Manny Manny?
Tim McCarver: Manny Manny Manny Manny Manny Manny. Manny Manny Manny Manny, Manny Manny Manny Manny.
Joe: Manny Manny Manny Manny. Manny Manny Manny — Chris Myers?

Appearing on “The Colbert Report” tonight, baseball statistician Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com compared Obama to the Rays — and McCain to the Seattle Pilots.
“HD” stands for “Highly Delicious” (or, perhaps, “Holycow, Dodgers!”).
In retrospect, Levi and I saw this coming at Wrigley Field on September 2nd, when we saw the Astros beat the Cubs 9-7 in 11 innings — a game which obviously impressed neither of us enough to write about it on this blog. (Also, that game [...]
