Jim Northrup passed away yesterday. He was 71.

I had the pleasure of meeting him a few times and he was always a true gentleman. Really enjoyed meeting fans and signing autographs.

RIP Jim.





RIP Indeed, Always liked Northrup even though he was always a thorn in the White Sox side.

Tony LaRussa managed his 5,000 game last night. He joins Connie Mack as the only mananger / coach in American professional sports to reach that milestone.

Pretty impressive.

Win number 8 in a row for the Red Sox is a drubbing of the Jays 16-4 (and yet another HR for Ortiz). Red Sox and Philly are now tied for best record in the majors.

Amazing
Under "This Day In Baseball" in this morning's paper
from June 13, 1948
"Babe Ruth Day at Yankee Stadium drew 49,641 who saw Ruth's No. 3 retired and the Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians 5-3."

Gosh -- well short of a sellout on the day they retired his # in The House that Ruth Built -- who'd thunkit.

Another blurb says, "June 13, 1957"
"Ted Williams hit three HR against Cleveland, becoming the first AL player to have two 3-HR games in a season."
At the ripe old age of 39, Ted hit .388 in 1957 -- he later wrote that "it was my best season ever." Same thing w/him as w/the Bambino too though, only 10,000 at Fenway in The Kid's career finale in 1960 -- that was a throng compared to what the Sox usually drew back then, esp. in Sept. & long out of any pennant race

Oh, & 1 more mention (what a day June 13 was)
June 13, 2003
Roger "The Rocket" Clemens
Wins his 300th game, & on the same night surpasses 4,000 career strikeouts
the only pitcher ever to realize these two milestones in the same game

Nine in a row -- sweet -- Scutaro w/ 2 straight multiple-hit games, key -- he, Lowrie & Pedroia make us next to none in the middle IF -- now it's TB, & once all the Crawford-returns stuff is out of the way, open up some space between us & them -- BIG PAPI -- the Babe himself would be envious of how he's going nowadays -- & Jon Lester, all but a no-hitter yesterday...

Wow -- 15 games out not too long ago, now it's suddenly just nine out for the Twins -- without Mauer, w/Morneau, Young, Cudduyer, Valencia having sub-par years, w/Jason Kubel & Denard Span now joining the gang on the DL -- maybe they can salvage something from this year after all -- Francisco Liriano -- what a hurler -- one of the best, when his head's screwed on straight & he's in command of his stuff...

I think (if I remember correctly) that Ted wad 6 hits short of a 400 average at age 39. Just a few legged out hits. Unreal. The idiot savant of hitting

That he was -- they didn't call him the Splendid Splinter for nothing
The year after this, he won the batting title with an average of .328 -- at 40 the oldest player ever to win the title
Rock on Teddy Ballgame

He also opted to play on the last day of the 1941 season when he already had a .400 batting average locked up even though the game was meaningless. I always thought that was cool.

Yeah, he was a proud SOB that way; but if the manager ever told him not to hit to help the team he would have chewed his head off. A man of many sides. Should have won 3 or 4 more MVP's but he was such a mean SOB no writer would vote for him. Lost in 41 to Dimaggio.

Welcome back, Joe Mauer
their new Japanese SS is also now back in the lineup
as the Twins' veterans -- Mauer, Morneau, Span, Kubel, Nathan, Thome etc -- come trudging back from the DL, it will be interesting to see if they can sustain this sudden run by the reserves in which they've won 11 of 13

that's what the Sox have done -- 11 of 12 babay -- now we have to pour suds on the brew-crew during Stanley Cup party-time weekend -- Mr. Beckett's gem the other nite, lost in the celebration -- a little insurance run last night, then Pap putting it away

what about the Pirates, my NL team (Kenny Babb's also, hey now bro!) -- over .500 this late into the season for the first time since 1999, when they were 40-38 -- I like the Bucs, always have

but it's all drowned out by

BROOONZ
2011 Stanley Cup winners
including three Game 7s
coming out on top w/all other teams also at their best in one of the best Stanley Cups in recent memory -- happy times for B's fans -paece, good weekend indeed

Wake should get a nice hand tomorrow night -- first time back in Pittsburgh, where he started his career all those eons ago -- with teammates like Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonilla, Doug Drabek, mgr. Jim Leyland etc. -- the last time the Bucs contended...

they're contending now though -- only 3 games back in a woeful NL Central -- in fact all the divisions are pretty lame, except for the NL East (Phila/Atlanta) & AL East (Sawx/NYY, maybe TB )

get well soon Justin Morneau -- his current injuries (wrist/neck) aren't baseball-related -- he's missed huge chunks of the last few seasons -- just putting on the uniform seems to bring about bad luck in the injuries dept. for the poor guy -- hopefully he can one day regain his 2006 form, when he was MVP

nope, they won't get those 300 ABs from Justin this year after all

Go Sox -- what about Adrian Gonzalez -- tear-ing-it-up

Justin Verlander was a great tonight. 8 innings 14 K's in a 6-0 Tigers win over Arizona. Now hope they win tomorrow and take the series

7 run 8th inning to beat Arizona. With this win and an Indians loss tonight Tigers will be sitting alone on top of the AL Central

What about Jake Peavy -- after several years of injuries while collecting a huge paycheck (like so many of his peers) -- 4 innings of one-hit ball in relief yesterday, plus 7 Ks -- "who'd-a-thunkit"
