    While Gomez was throwing all those strikeouts, the other eight guys might as well have been doing their homework in the outfield. I guess the people who wrote the rules for baseball didn’t want the uniforms to need cleaning very often.

    Regarding #6: That’s a real Steinerism for you. Charley’s tone and delivery sometimes remind me of the late Chicago Cubs announcer, Harry Caray. Charley has to be a couple of steps down from Vin Scully.
    Oh, for the days when Vin did six innings of play-by-play on the radio.
