One more win, and the best team in Curve history will claim its first Eastern League championship.

Amazing Baseball Stuff

There are two absolutely remarkable things happening in baseball this year … or anyway, I think they are remarkable.

1. The Seattle Mariners might be having the worst offensive season in baseball history … certainly in recent baseball history.

2. The Arizona Diamondbacks are definitely having the most fan-tastic season in baseball history.
