I posted today at LOHO about the supposed AL supremacy over the NL. After looking at the numbers, it seems the supremacy has been very real the past several years. I hate to say it, but I don’t see it changing any time soon, either.
Also, be sure to check out the campaign launched by Cubscast to voice support for Andre Dawson’s election into the Hall of Fame. And there has never been a better time to visitHawk4theHall. There’s a lot of cool information on that site about Dawson that makes a strong case for Hawk.
Personally, I just really want the guy to get in. One of my favorite Cub memories was going to a game in ’87 when Dawson came to the plate in the bottom of the 9th with two men out, two on, and the Cubs down three. Even from some pretty mediocre seats I had a great look at Dawson icing the pitcher with his trademark badass stare. And then he crushed one to send Wrigley into hysterics and the game into extras.
After that it got pretty boring. Seeing Harry sing a second 7th inning stretch was fun, and then Thad Bosley drove in the winning run . . . or something like that. I was 10, that’s pretty much all I remember.
Anyway, just thought I should post something finally. Didn’t want to keep you both waiting.
