Happy Birthday Sandy Koufax! and Happy New Year!

Today December 30th, 2009, Sandy Koufax turns 74! Happy Birthday Sandy!

 

Back in 1955, Koufax was competing to make the Dodgers roster along with another left-handed pitcher, Tommy Lasorda.   That is why Tommy always tells the story that it took the greatest lefthander to knock him off the roster!   

Here is Sandy with with Roseboro.

Happy Birthday Sandy!  

Everyone here at the MLBlogsphere, have a wonderful new year! 

Twas the Night Before Christmas at the MLB Blogs!

“Twas the Night Before Christmas and in every house
All good MLB bloggers and readers were clicking their mouse

They hung all their stockings, decorated their trees
and now it was time to sit down and see
What everyone posted on this Christmas Eve.

A nice break to read a bunch of good bloggers
Was just what they needed, but Oh no! the buggers!

When they went to the MLB site, none could be found.
“Oh no, we’re afraid Mark went out of town
Is the server down the reason we cannot read?
How could he do this in our time of need?

The bloggers all panicked, they shivered in fright,
They pined for their read/write and settled in for the night.

“Did we misspell the link? Did we hit the wrong key?
Did it go to LALA land?” Oh such misery!
And then in a flash, with a stroke of a key,
One by one, they discovered their Christmas Eve reads.

Their eyes how they twinkled, they laughed and smiled.
And they settled into the chair to read/write for a while.

Their hearts were delighted, they felt just like kids,
But it’s still such a mystery where the MLB links had hid.
Was it there all the time and they just didn’t see?
Or did Santa step in and do a good deed?

Good baseball fans are on Santa’s list
And good MLB bloggers and readers he vows never to miss.

It’s been a long night, time to climb into bed,
So they shut down their computers and laid down their heads.

But in a quiet of night, before things came to an end,
They heard “Thanks for reading and writing with me,
Its great to read and write with baseball friends!”

I wish you peace and joy!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!  Happy New Year!
