Meta: Radio Silence

In case you couldn't tell, I'm out of town, making a sweeping tour of the upper Midwest starting in Montana. I have only sporadic Internet access, and have only negative opinions (pre- and post-emptive) of the various trades I hear about. But since the Angels' season is over (and the Dodgers' only just so), this is actually a relief. See you all in mid-August.


"Sing Along With Mitch"

Mitch Miller, 99, died yesterday. My favorite Mitch Moment occurred in a July 23, 1991 Phillies @ Dodgers game. The Phils led 5-4 entering the last of the ninth as Mitch Williams began his second inning of work. Leftfielder Mitch Webster led off for the Dodgers. Webster fouled a bunt attempt back on the first pitch. Mitch Williams and catcher Darren Daulton put on their thinking caps and figured if Webster is trying to bunt his way on we will throw him the high hard one. Webster was in tune with the Phillie battery and looking fastball blasted the next pitch over the centerfield fence for his second home run (his first as a Dodger) of the year to tie the game 5-5.

For good measure Webster lined a tenth inning one out bases loaded walk-off single to right field off of Roger McDowell to win the game 6-5. Webster clearly won this battle of the Mitches.
