I've gone there to dig up box scores of games I've been at where cool things have happened (a triple play, Tuffy Rhodes hitting three homers off of Dwight Gooden and the Cubs STILL lost to him, Ryan's 300th win, Yount's 3000th hit).
Wow...this brought back memories of the coolest game (retrosheet.org) I have ever seen...Bronx...beating Boston...my birthday...beer...and Donnie Baseball winning the game in a come-from-behind ninth inning. The 90-minute rain delay was redeemed.

This site is a godsend. Just last friday we heard a trivia question on the radio that was so obscure (who started the 1988 home opener for the White Sox) that I never would have been able to figure it out otherwise. But by gum, one quick check of this site, and suddenly I know that Ricky Horton took the hill for the Pale Hose that day.

Well this is dandy. Between baseball-reference.com and this thing, my rumpus will never leave the house. I even ordered MLB Extra Innings, so I expect to take root sometime in early May.
One question: does it have postseason game logs? Or did I miss those? I need to get a complete list of Atlanta Braves players who took the field for Game 7 of the 1992 NLCS, so I can complete my voodoo doll collection.
Aw, don't go by batting average, of all things. Teixeira's career OPS+ is 132 and Kotchman's is 101, and both have similar numbers in 2008 (Tex 139 vs. Kotch 105). Offensively, the Angels come out WAY ahead on this deal.
