Are Those Some Minis In Your Pocket Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

Minis, minis, and more minis...

Mahlon played for the Philadelphia Stars and Homestead Grays in the 40's and 50's.

Earlier this month there was talk of the Giants buying out the remaining part of Barry's huge contract and parting ways with him.  But since then nothing has happened on that front and Barry looks to be the #4 pitcher in the rotation for the World Champs.

One of the great lost tracks of the 60's group, The Zombies is the song "Telescope (Mr. Galileo)" which is pretty much a song about Marty McFly's dad looking at women through a telescope.

For all players who weren't Yankees, Pee Wee has the record for most World Series games for one team.

I don't think Gorgeous George gets the all-time great credit he deserves.  He had the record for most hits in a season and had the consecutive game hitting streak...yet it took four ballots for George to get in the Hall of Fame.

Forget Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann is back from Tommy John surgery and tearing up Spring Training...but it sounds like Jordan will be on a season inning limit so he might not get to the great season that he could have.
