Despite coming way back to Earth, Commissioner Gordon still looking like he could go for 20 HR, 90 R, 90 RBI or more.

Couple other memorable baseball moments on this date:

1935 - Babe Ruth retires
1941 - Lou Gerhig dies
2010 - Armando Gallaraga's imperfect perfect game

I need to swap Holliday and someone else on my over-filled DL, so it would be nice if they'd announce it already ...

Stupid Cards shouldn't have pinch-hit him the other night - just moving the DL clock up a coupe of days and wasting time/risking further aggravation of the injury :-t

This is why I'm asking. I have a trade to accept and I need to swap Matusz and Holliday before I can do it.
