4. Was the lady that got hit with 2 foul balls any relation to Reed Johnson?
6. At least he can say he got on 4 times (consolation for being thrown out 4 times CS I guess).
9. I heard the White Sox found out the pitcher (that hit the guy in the head and subsequently died) was a long lost relative of Samardzija.

wikipedia has everything. It is still inexplicable. How in the world would this be deemed as confusing. Maybe the first time it was used but after that?I'll admit, that's pretty inexplicable.
1. Why in the heck would anyone want to steal 1st from 2nd?
In baseball's earlier decades, a runner on second base could "steal" first base, perhaps with the intention of drawing a throw which might allow a runner on third to score (a tactic famously employed by Germany Schaefer). However, such a tactic was not recorded as a stolen base, and modern rules forbid going backwards on the basepaths in order to "confuse the defense or make a travesty of the game".

Didn't Juan Cruz start his career by striking out a bunch of dudes in a row?
Looks like, at the most, he would have struck out only four in a row because the #5 hitter didn't strike out in the game: http://www.baseball-...200108210.shtml
hmm none of the Alou brothers are wearing gloves I wonder if they pee on their hands too
