Here’s a question you didn’t know you had: what if you take various Hall of Fame candidates and type them into your
web browser as (name).com? It’s answered here.
The Sweeney story
Mike Sweeney: player for a small-market team, and victim of a conspiracy that’s kept him
from being recognized.
“What baseball team should I root for?”

The Eephus League
As seen on the Uni Watch blog: The Eephus League of Baseball Minutiae was the senior graphic design project of Auburn University student Bethany Heck. I think I can safely speak for Levi and say that this is right up the alley of both of us here at BRPA, both in terms of
and the baseball.
The highlight is the “Shop” page, which you unfortunately can’t shop on (yet). I love all the posters using old photos from the Library of Congress collection, but if I were going to actually buy anything, it would have to be the scorekeeping pencils in a can.
More road trip “competition”

on Flickr: a 2007 baseball road trip that was 10 games in 8 cities in 12 days. Obviously, it wasn’t planned on graph paper by me. I haven’t given the photos my full attention, but it looks like a good trip. I need to take more photos on next week’s trip than I did in 2004 (which will be easier thanks to advances in technology over the past 6 years).
Lady Gaga meets the Mets
Lady Gaga at Citi Field Thursday:
I appreciate the glimpse of the studded black bra from the “Telephone” video, but the rest of the ensemble doesn’t seem particularly outrageous. Plaid shirt, leather jacket, headband, sunglasses? That’s what half the crowd wears at Dodger night games. Where’s the hat shaped like Shea Stadium? Where’s the nose ring with a Mr. Met bobblehead dangling from it?
Actually, I haven’t seen any pictures showing her lower half, so I’ll imagine Ms. Gaga was wearing a skirt made of mini-baseball bats and a pair of cleats with 8-inch metal spikes.
Here’s about five and a half minutes of home-movie footage from an Orioles-White Sox doubleheader at Comiskey Park on August 22, 1976.
Keeping score with the pros
Here’s a scorecard as kept by baseball announcer/television writer Ken Levine, whose work has been referred to on this blog before (he co-wrote the “Dancin’ Homer” episode of “The Simpsons,” mentioned here early on).
Another Washington scandal
Senatorial staff members ordered a cake for a ceremony honoring Bobby Cox’s 50 years in baseball. The order was placed by phone, apparently. If you’re a fan of Cake Wrecks, there’s a lot to like about the cake — it’s pretty horrible even aside from the misspelling.
