Is that how it worked? If you won both division halves, you got to have four home games? So the Royals would make the playoffs despite not winning any division title (and there were no WC back then).
What was the rationale behind splitting the season into halves, rather than just resuming the standings from where they left off?
*It originally was going to be the team that had the best overall record among the other division teams, but it was discovered that the Reds and Cardinals, who barely lost out of their first half titles, could lose games during the pennant drive in order to ensure that the two halves weren't won by two different teams. If they weren't, the other spot would likely go to them instead.
Robin Roberts, my favorite player ever.
Twitter is saying that Dale Sveum is out as Cubs manager. I approve if true.
And Uggla's teammate B.J. Upton hit .184 in 391 AB. That has to be the lowest averages ever for two regular players on one team.
