Please stop calling him Heather. It should also be mentioned in the calendar fact section that it was the last game of Heath's career. I don't think he ever played again.

How far back have they actually gone with WAR calculations? My guess will be Ernie Banks.

 

Not sure why I typed Heather.  Not sure if this is some common thing I have missed out on.

 

 

Bill Buckner, '81 Cubs.  1.2 WAR.

 

Right year, wrong player.  The player was a pitcher.

Wasn't 1981 a part of the Tidrow era? I'll go with Dick Tidrow and dare you to call me wrong.

The understood word there is "wrong", ergo, you just called Tidrow wrong.  Been nice knowin ya!

 

BTW, the answer to today's trivia, since y'all are a bunch of limp brained morans...Mike Krukow at 2.3 (granted this is cheating since 1981 is a strike shortened year).

 

Anyone care to guess who the correct answer would be for a non-strike shortened year since 1901?

Double bonus points if you can also guess the 2nd worst non-strike shortened, post-1901 year and player.

Fuck that.  And fuck the calendar.  And fuck Spriggs, too.  (But mostly because he hasn't joined Twitter yet).
