10/9: Too Close to Call? Not This Time
October 9, 2014
By Barbara Carvalho It all came down to Buster Posey vs. Yasiel Puig, and it had nothing to do with the baseball playoffs. No, it had everything to do with whether I would win this year’s (the 64th) season of the 300 Club. The group that is made up of around 100 baseball junkies who […]

For an earlier generation, “What did the president know, and when did he know it?” took the crown, followed by Carter’s “Malaise,” and perhaps, Reagan’s “I am paying for this microphone” proclamation. Since then, the classic, […]
