Correcting SI

In this morning's SI Extra, I read a line that seemed wrong.

St. Louis became the fourth team in history never to have a lead in the World Series (1963 Dodgers, '66 Orioles and 90 A's were the others)...

I was pretty sure that was wrong about the A's so I went to retrosheet.org to verify. Sure enough, the A's lead 3-2 after three innings in Game 2. (http://www.retrosheet.org/boxesetc/B10170CIN1990.htm)

Of course, a team that NEVER lead in the WS was SF in '89. (http://www.retrosheet.org/boxesetc/YPS_1989.htm)

I found a general e-mail address for SI, but does anyone have Tom Verducci's e-mail address?

Speaking of SI, in this week's issue, there's a note in one of their "gossip" sections that Alyssa Milano has officially dumped Carl Pavano in favor of Barry Zito and that she's trying to persuade him -- allegedly a conservative Republican -- to vote for Kerry.

Doesn't Lil have the trademark (at least on this site) for the singular response of "sigh"?

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By diamond_lil on Monday, November 01, 2004 - 08:52 am:

no trademark but...

sigh...

Perhaps, but simplefan and I capitalized ours. :)

Sorry to indulge eyleen, but here is more dish on U-Know-Who...

SIGH ---i cannot resist.

Zito clearly loves the attention and craves a bigger stage. Numbers aside, if you understand this psychology, then we should trade him by '06. He's half-way out the door as it is.

I'm guessing he'd be delighted to go to the Yankees. I had the feeling that he and Macha disagreed more than once this past year.

I would have voted for Kerry if Alyssa Milano let me drink her bath water, let alone this.

Any word on whether she managed to change Barry's mind?

I knew Alyssa Milano would turn out well way back on WHO'S THE BOSS, but I didn't have a clue she'd turn out THIS well.

Judging from the story above, it doesn't seem to be a household divided by politics.

At quick glance, I thought this was Menechino and Giambi...

HAHAHAHA! That's messed up!

Here's mine:

At quick glance, I thought this was a negative image of Michael Jackson and Emmanuel Lewis...

Good thing he still pitches better than he dresses, though it's getting close.

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By oakchick on Wednesday, November 03, 2004 - 09:41 pm:

finley, I had always figured Zito to be a flakey libby hippy guy("a little airy, a little manic", pink pillows, stuff toys, masturbation before games, etc), and am astounded he is a GOPer...

Shows that stereotypes do not work anymore...not in this confusing day and age...

Personally, I do not care who he votes for, or what he does before games, as long as he gets his stuff together and gets us 20 wins next season.

At this point, I am less concerned about who wins the elections than..... who is going to CATCH for the A's next season now that Miller is gone?

I do believe the '89 Giants never had the lead during the World Series against the A's...

scratch that last message - wbell already mentioned it in the beginning (though what's the harm in repeating this little fact... ;)

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By finleyshero on Thursday, November 04, 2004 - 01:14 pm:

What if Zito is in fact a flaming liberal, but he spun this conservative tale so Milano felt she had to "cure" him ala Florence Nightengale?

This would certainly be the definition of the phrase, "crafty lefthander"!

Nope, He's a USC guy, that is a VERY conservative school and and part of California, its so conservative that they were burning the house down when Carter won the election back in the day. Even though he may fit the description of a "stereotypical liberal" I wasnt surprised at all.

He also went to UCSB, and I think he considers himself more a Gaucho than a Trojan, based on his conversations with fellow Gaucho Jim Rome.
