Miscellaneous news and opinions on the postseason so far:
- Former commish Fay Vincent takes a look back at the 1989 World Series that literally shook the world.
- With the cold weather in the northern cities in the playoffs, this Reuters post is looking for any angle they can. They’re suggesting a neutral site for the World Series in warmer climate… (The Baseball Zealot says: ummm, no).
- Greg Trietley of The Pitt News, is the only one I know making this suggestion… make the playoffs longer (albeit with a shorter regular season).
- And something not to be read while eating… a puff piece by the Idaho Statesman about Tim McCarver. From the article: “How long will he do it? "I think about (Pat) Summerall’s line about the butterflies before the game," he said. "Whenever that stops, it’s time to leave.”
Somebody get a fly swatter.
