Today marks the 30th anniversary of Blue Monday. 10-year-old me still gets sad thinking about it.

For you youngsters, it's the day the Dodgers beat the Expos to win the NLCS on a 9th-inning HR by Rick Monday. The Expos never returned to the playoffs.

Formers Expos 3B Tim Wallach is the Third Base Coach for the Dodgers. I met Wallach before a game this year. I asked him if he ever sees Monday around the Dodgers' offices and wants to punch him. He laughed hard. That made me smile.

Being a Pirates fan and what happened on 10/14/1992, I kinda know how you feel.

Except, you know, your team is still alive.

This thread makes me sad.

A lot of people in Pittsburgh would disagree with you. : )

Do they have a team? If yes then kindly shut up. I think the only city that really understands us is Seattle.

Not really. They got a team back after only 7 years. Brooklyn, maybe.

Oddly, our football team came from Baltimore

If this post time-traveled back from 2015 this is very good news. Do we have a hockey team, too?

Sorry. Since this was a baseball thread, my thoughts went to the Seattle Pilots. I wasn't trying to diss the Sonics.

I'm fine with Edgar getting in as long as Bagwell gets in first. It's insane to me that he only got half the votes he needed. Six consecutive years of 30 home runs, 100 RBI and 100 runs (only 1B to match that are Gehrig and Foxx).
