  • Baseball's 25 biggest miseries of the past 25 yrs

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...ge=neel/040407

    18. Tommy Lasorda makes Tom Niedenfuer pitch to Jack Clark in the bottom of the ninth with a one-run lead and first base open. Mr. Clark makes Mr. Lasorda wish he had a do-over. It's one of those slow-motion car-crash home runs. You know what's coming and you know it's going to be ugly but you can't look away, so you just stare at the screen shaking your head, and when it comes, when the wood hits the leather, the sound of contact is accompanied by the low, sorrowful sound of Dodger fans moaning everywhere and all at once.

    12. Don Denkinger calls Jorge Orta safe. This would rank higher, but it took place during Game 6 of the State Championship of Missouri, so you know, for a long time, nobody had any idea it had happened.

    East Coast slaps midwest in face daily. That series was much more exciting than that New York title series a few years ago, even though I am still not over losing that series to KC.

        I don't remember the exact circumtances, but certainly there was SOMEONE on the bench who could run faster than Sid Bream, wasn't there?

            How could this writer leave out 1981? There was a strike. The Reds and the Cardinals had the best records in the National League, but Bowie Kuhn came up with a split season format which eliminated both of them. If you tell me where he's buried, I will go there and urinate on his grave.

              What was the format?

                  He's still alive.

                    There might be an uncomfortable moment when you begin urinating and discover that he's still breathing.

                      1994, Expos would have probably won the world series--wasn't to be.

                        Thought for sure Bonds would make the top 10.
                        From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the machinery of death.

                        For more than 20 years I have endeavored-indeed, I have struggled-along with a majority of this Court, to develop procedural & substantive rules that would lend more than the mere appearance of fairness to the death penalty endeavor.


                        I feel morally and intellectually obligated simply to concede that the death penalty experiment has failed.

                        The path the Court has chosen lessens us all. I dissent.
