It's that kind of race.  C'mon, Lynch Mob, wins and runs, wins and runs!  Go Mob!

But the blown save for Doolittle turned into a win for him, and a half point for Choes Ballin...more meaningful than the would-have-been save, or the incremental hit to his ERA and WHIP. It's a wild and crazy race to the finish!

Bell (Fisher Catamounts) homers off Doolittle (Choes Ballin) as PCL stretch run gets head to head....will it matter?  It might, for our HR.  Less likely for Choes' WHIP.

Great card, indeed..I have a few Eddie Murray rookie cards. Always loved the Gold Cup on a Topps rookie card.

As a rabid baseball card collector for 40 years, and having every Topps set from 1968 - Present, along with the 1954, 1955 and 1959 sets, I would say the 1976 Topps Traded card of Oscar Gamble is my favorite. For non-baseball card collectors, Google it - classic

If you go all the way back to 52 games, it's .323/.389/.559 with 9 HR.

51% ground ball rate?  Wonder if that can be fixed.

One of my favorite baseball cards is a 1978 Topps Eddie Murray with the Rookie of the Year trophy on it.

The overall MLB rookie record is held by Eddie Murray and Tony Clark with 27. Bell is currently tied with Devo for 5th most.

Who knew that Chipper Jones held the switching-hitting home run record for rookies in the BL? With a mere 23?

It's Josh's now.
