If the Phillies' new pitcher doesn't have "Wild Thing" as entrance music, I'll be extremely disappointed.

Bill Buckner, an outfielder and first baseman whose long, solid career was overshadowed by an infamous error that cost the Boston Red Sox Game 6 of the 1986 World Series against the Mets, who went on to win the championship, died on Monday. He was 69.

Some expert who studies pitch mechanics, claims that it is nearly impossible for anyone to throw a 110+ MPH fast ball. At that speed or greater, the arm is in danger of breaking or becoming dislocated, the ligaments can't take it past that point. No one has thrown this fast as of yet, but there is only a little bit to go. I'd say 105 Mph is pretty damn fast.

Thank God the London Series is over. The quality of the gameplay in that stadium just doesn't feel right, there were too many multi-base hits and pop fouls not being caught.

On the bright side, I'm digging the Reds' Palm Beach throwbacks!
