NY Times: Many Games, Few Innings

The latest sponsored effort in the New York Times. Can someone with lexis nexis tell me if this is the first use of LOOGY in the Times?

These pieces appear weekly on Fridays.

    LexisNexis returns four results in the New York Times for "loogy"... Two of them refer to spit, but two of them do refer to left-handed relievers: today's article and an October 2, 2005 article titled "Why Do Managers Use Some Relievers for One Batter? Because It Works" by Alan Schwarz.

  2. Vinny Says:

    Also, five results for "loogie" since 1994. Three references to spitting, one to a TV character name, and one to an episode title for NYPD Blue.

    That damn Alan Schwarz!

    Thanks for linking to my Gallardo post, Sean. That's probably the closest I'll ever get to getting published in the NY Times.
