Semi-misogynistic and sideburn-filled intro to Game 4 of the '72 series: Reds vs. A's.
More art than history, but there's a little history! I'm drawing every Reds Hall of Famer, starting with the first inductees of 1958 and working my way up to the present. Posted so far: Paul Derringer, Ernie Lombardi, Johnny Vander Meer, Bucky Walters, and Frank McCormick. Drawn but not posted yet: Eppa Rixey, Ival Goodman, and Ewell Blackwell. Coming up soon(ish), and I can't WAIT: Edd Roush, Ted Kluszewski, and the awesomely named Bubbles Hargrave and Noodles Hahn. I'm really bummed by the lack of handle bar mustaches so far. I did some Wikipedia research, and it appears the Reds didn't induct a mustachioed man until 2004. I blame Marge Schott. Anyway, enjoy!
In one respect, it might. Click the SBNation Minor League Ball link above to see preliminary data from a study that looks at how minor league starters' walk and strikeout rates change in going from Low A to High A to AA and how the leagues they pass through influence those changes.
When they were planning Predator, the producers originally wrote for the eponymous villain to be Jean Claude Van Damme. They decided against it, figuring that nobody would be afraid of a dreadlocked creature out for human blood if he was under 6-foot. The producers of Predator had clearly never stepped in against Johnny Cueto.
