Biggio and Bagwell throw out Game 7 ceremonial first pitches

HOUSTON — Two of Houston’s all-time favorite people got World Series Game 7 started tonight.

Hall of Famers and Astros legends Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell through out the ceremonial first pitches before the deciding game in the 2017 World Series between Houston and Washington.

A fitting choice- I hope the two of them aren’t too depressed about the results of the night.

A retrospective on the lost 1994 season

Twenty-five years ago today, the baseball season abruptly ended as the players went on strike, protesting a major overreach by ownership which attempted to consolidate too much power in the hands of the commissioner. Ownership really wanted to implement a salary cap, which then-union executive director Donald Fehr correctly said would come with no benefit to the players. It wasn’t just about that, though. Ownership had been deceitful many times in years past, so the union was distrustful and resentment festered.

There were no playoffs, no World Series in 1994. Awards were given out, but it was little solace for some of the players and teams in the midst of outstanding, potentially career- or franchise-altering seasons. Let’s take a look at exactly who those teams and players were.

A commentary on the statistical consequences of the 1994 strike- see if you can spot the major calculating error in this piece.
