So begins a home run-free calendar streak of a lengthy period of time.  Hopefully y'all can hang on to your sanity.

 

This year was the breakout season for Cubs closer Lee Smith. 

 

He led the NL in saves with 29 - the first of four season he would lead the NL.  It was also the year he was named to the first of seven All-Star teams and (ugh, the Calendar uses a comma before "and") received both Cy Young and MVP votes.

,1982? Or, at least it should be somewhere around there.

Close, but the magnitude of my birth that year outshone everything else.

I haven't seen any of the new ones, I think I am 1 or 2 seasons behind.  The last one I saw was when the Doctor was "killed".  I don't get BBC America so I'm stuck with the PBS reruns and right now they just defeated the aliens who were living in the upstairs flat that wasn't really there.
