Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 11-7-2012

Ogden Evening Standard, November 7, 1912:

A most curious alibi was sprung recently for losing a baseball series…It relates to the failure of the Minneapolis team, thrice champions of the American association, to triumph over the Denver team, winners of the Western league.
...
The pitching staff of the Millers had been complaining of the difficulty to get their curves to break properly, and had practically given it up as a bad job on account of the rare condition of the air.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Craig Calcaterra is reporting on Twitter that Yasmani Grandal has come down with one of those 50-game testosterone suspension thingies. I can see no other sources for this, maybe his wife came up with it.

Joe Niekro is the greatest clutch pitcher in history. Therefore: no problem.
