i bet he is in the best shape of his life.
Long after retiring, Banks recalled the sweltering midsummer’s day in 1969 when he bubbled over in a phrase that became his trademark.
“We were in first place, and all the reporters were already in the locker room when I arrived at Wrigley for a game with the Cardinals,” Banks told The Arizona Daily Star. “I walked in and said: ‘Boy, it’s a beautiful day. Let’s play two.’ They all thought I was crazy.”...

The most important event of the offseason!
Pittsburgh’s Josh Bell is #1.

Wiln Rosario doesn’t look particularly athletic to me.
They only throw in the low 90’s. Pfft!
The trickle is turning into a flood.
