"It's a great day for baseball, let's play two"

One of my favorite sayings.

One of the best players of all time, on and off the field.

RIP Ernie.

That stat they kept posting during the game the other night about him being the player with the most games played without playing in the playoff is kinda brutal, kinda surprising as good as he was, too.

I saw something the other day that said he was the all time leader in fun had while playing the game. Just a guy who truly enjoyed playing the game of baseball.

See, to me, that makes the fact that he never played in the post season even weirder. That kind of enthusiasm can be infectious (in a good way) so I'm surprised it didn't rub off on his teammates and make them play looser/better.
