That may have very well been the fastest Sunday Night baseball game (or any game for that matter) I have ever seen in my life. 2 hours, 2 mins. Wow!

Just got done reading this book, which is a pretty good layout of the life of one of the greatest pitchers of all time.  I love heroes that transcend race and it's boundaries. An excerpt of the book as an example:

Even more telling was the effect Satchel would have on white teammate Clint "Scrap Iron" Courtney of the St. Louis Browns, a segregationist from the backwaters of Louisiana who made it clear he would never warm up the black fireballer not to mention catch for him in a game.  Satchel challenged Courtney to a pregame test of skills. First the pitcher played shortstop, throwing out Courtney on a ground ball.  Then Satchel donned the catcher's gear, gunning down Courtney as he tried to steal second. Lastly he trudged to left field, chasing down a fly ball and erasing Courtney, who was twenty-one years younger, as he tried to score from third.  The catcher was convinced.  "One day I noticed Clint was warming him up," reported Browns owner Bill Veeck.  A week later "I walked into a bar in Detroit called The Flame.  There were Leroy and Clint having dinner together.  Courtney told me, 'My pap's comin' up tomorrow from Lou'siana and he's gonna be mighty mad when he hears about us being friends.  But Satch and me figure we can whup him together.' "

What a legend! Learned about him watching Ken Burns baseball. Possibly the greatest pitcher of all time!

Ozzie -- primarily based on his greater range. But I would happily take either of them and in 40 years of watching baseball I can't say I have seen any other SS that was in the same league as either of these two.

Knowing what you know NOW, before Spring Training, which division are you most excited to watch?  Which has the most competition?  (I could only place 5 choices, but I feel that if the pitching Washington has holds up, they will lock up the NL East with little effort.)
