For the record, Quinn was 50 when he made his final appearance in the majors in 1933. Will Wakefield hang around to equal Quinn on that?
....AND THEN THERE ARE THE PIRATES
All I can say is, at 67-82, the math is no longer on their side. Sorry Pirates fans, there isn't anything the laws of physics can do for you at this point because the mathematics has fallen apart for your team. They have officially extended their major-league record to 19 consecutive LOSING seasons. And to think, I was on their bandwagon earlier in the year when they were semi-red hot. Boooooooo!
AND FINALLY-- THE WORLD CHAMPION SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
Gone fishing. The NL West belongs to Arizona's most dangerous snakes.
AND DOUBLE FINALLY-- PENCIL IN MOTOWN
I'm not a psychic but I will say this-- a guy with the initials J.V. will win the AL Cy Young Award, AL MVP and the AL Rolaids Relief Man Award.
And he may repeat as NL MVP too. Who knows?
