The Bright Side

To that long illustrious list of silver linings we add a few more:
  • On Bill Buckner's blunder in '86: "He almost got it."

  • On Rose betting on baseball: "He never bet against the Reds."

  • On Barry Bonds breaking Aaron's record: "He hit some of them without the help of steroids."

  • On Frank Robinson trade for Milt Pappas: "Milt is frankly a better pitcher than Robinson."

  • On the sale of Babe Ruth to the Yanks: "The money is still compounding."

  • On the Chicago Blacksox throwing the 1919 World Series: "We're still fay-moose!"
