Looking for something else to discuss while the clock ticks down to 11:00 Pacific?
Well, as Larry Stone reminds us, November 18th is also the birthday of one Jaime Moyer:@StoneLarry Happy 48th birthday to Jamie Moyer. Saw him yesterday at a Dave Niehaus celebration and he's looking much younger than his years.

What else happened on November 18th? Mussolini came to power. Jim Jones got his followers to drink the kool-aid, thus cursing us with a facile line used by every sport talking head. In '49, Jackie Robinson became the first black player to win the MVP Award, beating Stan Musial, Ralph Kiner, and Pee Wee Reese. Sandy Koufax retired at 30 because his elbow hurt so much.
Oh, and Doc Gooden & Bret Saberhagen, ages 20 and 21, won the Cy Youngs in 1984. Which brings us back to the original topic.
