Things like, "Hey, Lilliquist, the phrase 'Get Motte up' does NOT sound like 'Do nothing, I'm gonna leave Rzepczynski in to face the hottest hitter in the game!'"

I'll bring it up to Sean & Neil.

But how are there outages in 1999? Someone has to know the exact pitch data right?

More specifically, LaRussa should have ordered Edwin Jackson to throw over to first 3 or 4 times then go get him (would have been extremely amusing considering there was also a runner on 2nd at the time).

I was wondering if I could get a list of all the players who have worn the number 12.
