Congrats to the Angels

Congrats to the Angels, a truly fine team, for winning the World Series. It was a great Series and it’s a shame that not too many people watched.

BTW, I lost count of how many times the announcers mentioned that Angels pitcher John Lackey was aiming to be the first rookie starter to win a Game 7 of the World Series since 1909. However, no one ever mentioned who that starter was. It was Babe Adams, who won three games in the 1909 Classic for the victorious Pittsburgh Pirates. Adams, who actually pitched in 5 games in 1906 and 1907, wound up with a 194-140 record in his 19-year career.
