    Bill James once opined that on the average you will see at least one future Hall of Famer in every half inning of play in any MLB game.  Well last night a future first ballot Hall of Fame pitcher got his 600th career save when a future first ballot Hall of Fame baserunner was tagged out by a future  first ballot Hall of Fame shortstop.  That’s a nifty clip for Cooperstown.

      Check the 1971 All-Star Game and count the HOF’ers in that one. ;-)

      Bill James apparently never watched a Royals-Orioles game in late September, given his “average” theory.

      Bill James isn’t alone—and for good reason. Since 1993 the Orioles and Royals have met only once in the month of September. That was on September 24th, 2007. It was a make-up game from an April rain-out that year.
