A couple of items to jump start this DLD.
First, there is an interesting interview in today's "Sacramento Bee" with Eric Chavez.
He broke into a huge grin when asked if people should feel sorry for him.
"Nope," he said quickly. "I have a good life. Other than being disappointed and not being able to be on the field, I've been pretty blessed in my life. No one should feel sorry for me. Trust me, I feel like I've already had a good career, a long career. Longer than most. More productive than most."
Finally, didja know that in 1916, Babe Ruth pitched 323 innings and gave up 0 HR? That's right, 0 HR. Granted, 1916 is before Ruth destroyed the Dead Ball Era, when every team hit like the 2009 A's. But still, 0 HR.
