Wild Wild Card Ends Chance of Cowboys And Indians Metaphor Saturday Oct 6, 2012 Links

The NL wild card game was insane. Torontonian Favorite Larry Jones threw open the door for the Cards and the umps blew a call in the outfield deep deep infield to seal the Braves fate. Meanwhile, the O's used their pixie dust to put the Rangers to sleep till next year as Josh Hamilton ended (probably) his Ranger tenure on a very sour note by striking out on 3 pitches twice, grounding out on 1 pitch and hitting into a double play.

Baseball History October 6th - National Pastime - Baseball History
1985 On the last day of the season, Yankee knuckleballer Phil Niekro becomes the 18th and oldest player in major league history to win his 300th victory when he blanks the Blue Jays, 8-0. The forty-six year and 188 days old, who will win 318 games, also surpasses Satchel Paige (46 yrs, 75 days) to become the oldest pitcher to throw a shutout in the big leagues. Notes, 1) Niekro only threw knucklers in the 9th inning and 2) no Jays fan cared as they were too hungover from celebrating the Jays first AL East Pennant which is odd because it should have showed up yesterday... damn American "bias."
