Old Sites, New Stuff

I’ve done shout outs here before and want to do another one today. I’ve also done both these sites before, but want to redo them because both are doing really good stuff that you may have missed.

Kevin at “DMB Historic World Series Replay” (see blogroll at right) is currently redoing the 1906 World Series. This is, for my money, the greatest World Series upset ever. The Cubs won 116 games in 1906, the White Sox were lucky to hit .200. The Sox won in six. Check out both his review of the original series and the replay.

Bill at “The On Deck Circle” (also see blogroll at right) is running a series on the best overlooked seasons by players on various teams. This looks at a team, and tries to find out who had the best season that no one remembers. Good idea that brings back an image of a largely forgotten player. He just did Kansas City (yes, KC really did have good teams with good players) and reminded me about  pitcher Dennis Leonard who had a heck of a year back in 1977. Worth checking out even if you think he should have taken someone else because it will remind you just how good some otherwise forgotten players really were when they played.

Check both out. Worth the time and effort.
