Must not have been 7th inning or up? I'm almost POS that his was a 3-run jack as well.

Hard to believe.

If it were up to me to log into the blog to check all the comments, I wouldn't do it. Instead, I read all of the comments, most of them as soon as they get posted and the email comes through. It's a bitch when I have a few popular posts up overnight--sometimes there are 100 comments for me to read in the morning, and that takes some time. But I read 'em all.

If you get notification emails all day every day for every post, you may already be insane.

My email notifications did something funny and I got confused. Regarding the content of your original comment, I have no quibbles whatsoever!

Look at your list. How many teams are there in the majors? How many teams were there, even before expansion? For one team, especially one that hasn't been in the postseason a lot of times recently, to be responsible for 50% of the instances on such a list is, statistically, fairly unusual. That's all I was saying, and I'm sorry that you seem to have taken it the wrong way--even though my post doesn't seem at all controversial to me and I can't see what you found wrong with it. Please tell me what I did wrong and I promise to never do it again.
