In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."

"Greatest White Sox Team of All Time" simulation tournament

Posted 05-15-2009 at 04:50 PM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

So I decided to have a little fun with my "Greatest White Sox Team of All-Time" rankings and submit them to a tournament to see who would beat who over a seven-game series. Now I have no delusions about how such scenarios would actually play out. It would be enormous fun if we could somehow get all these teams together and see them play-and how it would turn out. For now, though, I turn to whatifsports.com computer simulations. Kind of stinks in that I would much rather do it the old-fashioned...

"Cubsession" n.-An obsession with the Chicago National League Ballclub, Inc. Said to afflict several rooters of the *sneer* other team in town, if one does truly exist. *sneer*

I have been thinking about "Cubsession," that fine, badly overused word coined here on WSI, lately. I have several rambling, disjointed thoughts about it. I just thought I would share a few in the privacy of my own blog, where you are free to come and read it if you like. It isn't on the...

APBA Game 12

Posted 04-28-2009 at 11:27 PM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

Just finished game 12 of my APBA season. It was the type of game that would cause 500 reply postgame threads, server overload and a complete crash-and-burn on WSI were it a real game.

The 1936 Sox took the early 2-0 lead, but Boston answered right back to make it 2-2. The White Sox eventually made it 6-3. Zeke Bonura was in fine form with two 2 RBI hits. John Whitehead (what a name. Just hearing it brings back painful memories of adolesence) pitched well for the Sox. Boston chipped...

*The "Black Cubs?" Was the 1918 World Series fixed? Unearthed evidence that seems to point this fact would be explored.


*The Federal League challenge of 1914-15 and Chicago's forgotten pennant winner-the Chicago Whales of 1915.

*Charles Weeghman and his forgotten impact on the game. It was he who built Wrigley Field and moved the Cubs there after the FL went out of business. Shrewd businessman or Accidental Genius?

*The Cubs and White...

"Baseball in Chicago" Dream Documentary

"MLB Network is proud to present....Ken Burns' 'Baseball!" Thus sayeth the voiceover announcer on the network. Ah, yes. The definitive documentary of our National Pastime...if you are from New York or Boston and want to see the doc pay an inordinate amount of attention to Boston blowing Game 6 or Doris Kearns Goodwin wax rhapsodic about how she chose Boston to root for after the Dodgers left Brooklyn because she couldn't root for the Yankees, or some such nonsense.

The documentary...
