I watched that awful team in Washington. I was also a Dodgers fan by virtue of being 9 years old living in LA before moving to DC in 1962. I thought Gil Hodges was the best first baseman the Dodgers ever had, and I still think so. His not being in the Hall of Fame is a travesty.

He was a good man.

Gil was my gradfather's favorite, too. In my family the Dodgers departure was viewed as base betrayal-- I don't know anyone that stayed a fan after they left. But about Gil, big guy. Peewee Reese said of him, "Gil just wears a glove at first base because it is fashionable."

Stuff like that is why baseball rocks.

When the Miracle Mets took the flag in '69 I was a little boy and not privy to "inside baseball." I hardly am now, and it is a delight, as always, to read you on the Mets.

Who suck, by the way.

I got tickets for the Nationals at Shea on the 23rd. I hope we have a win or two by then.
