It's a funny kind of month, October. For the really keen cricket fan it's when you discover that your wife left you in May.
Baseball is the only major sport that appears backwards in a mirror.
George Carlin, Brain Droppings, 1997
You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the goddamn plate and give the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all.
