  • Commentary: Saying goodbye to baseball greats, and looking at some hoops numbers

    Last week ended on a serious down note for me and a lot of other baseball fans, as we lost two Hall of Fame members on the same day. Earl Weaver, who I don't think needs any introduction here, and Stan Musial, who shouldn't either, unless you're one of those football geeks who doesn't care a bit for baseball, passed over to the next realm within a few hours of each other on Saturday. Weaver was 82, and Musial was 92, so I don't think either death counts as a tragedy, but it was still sad to see two of baseball's giants leave us. The two men couldn't have been much farther apart in personality, but they both pushed my favorite sport to new places, made it better, loved it, and we baseball fans are better for it.

    Fed up with this baseball season? Try my team

    It's fortunate personal computers and their use for rotisserie baseball format hadn't been invented when I was growing up, otherwise I might not have made it out of grade school. Then again, most guys who grew up in the 1950s were the equivalent of...
