As you may or may not know, I'm a very active member of the Society of American Baseball Research, a big proponent of SABRmetrics, a shameless stat-head, and a student of history.
What does that mean, practically speaking? Well, for one thing, I yearn to lay some absurd pieces of trivia on y'all. These shards of knowledge may just rock your world. Or win you a bar bet. Or be forgotten about five minutes from now. That's the thing about living in a free country - it's your choice.
Nonetheless, who are you to spurn knowledge wrought from the straining muscles and grinding gears of time? Only one can could get away with that, and his name is Tony Tarasco.
