You will see it reference about 10 - 1,00,000,000 times this year and it will not die, although it does kill the thread. Do a search then rub your eyes with sandpaper.

Here is the 3 HR URL: viewtopic.php?t=236460

Just wait for the first 3 HR game of the year (If that was indeed possible, we all know it is a myth) and the thread will be bumped again, and break the 100 page mark.

As for impossible stories I want to see this year: Dusty changes his ways, never says anything else dumb, becomes a SABR genius, manages his pitchers to perfection, every decision he makes is right, and he leads the Reds to a World Series appearance. Of course, that is as likely as a player hitting 3 home runs in a single game.
There are a few things with the New York Yankees that never change. That's pride, tradition, and most of all, we have the greatest fans in the world. -Derek Jeter, 9/21/08 -- last words from old Yankee Stadium

It'd be awesome to see a perfect game for one pitcher and a 8 2/3 perfect for another but it ends on a solo homer.
Any 2 pitchers any two teams
