Link Dump Oct 20

Sorry this is a little early, but I'm on the east coast for a few days. If someone else beats me to opening the next few Link Dumps, I'll post Diego in the comments.

Bill's passing has been well memorialized in many places (including yesterday's Link Dump), but I can't resist one plug for an AN Diary on getting Bill King into the Hall of Fame.

Not many links so far.

Here's a happy one:Spring Training Details!

Also the usual:

AP - On this wild night of celebration, the Houston Astros owed it all to Roy Oswalt. He took their dreams, hopes and gritty resolve and pitched his teammates into their first World Series, beating the St. Louis Cardinals 5-1 Wednesday night with help from Craig Biggio.

(Yeah, Oswalt pitched his butt off, but "owed it all"?  I think a lot of pitchers could have won with 5 runs of support. )
