So, the plan as of Friday was to go to the Jays game on Saturday afternoon with some pals who were in town for a visit. As we're having lunch, however, the girlfriend of one of the friends mentions that she's never been to the Royal Ontario Museum, so we all decide what the hell, we all see a lot of ballgames, let's check out the museum for a change of pace.
To summarize, NEVER EVER GO TO MUSEUMS
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
Before Bay, the best rookie season of any Pirate was probably Ralph Kiner, waaaay back when. Don't think they had any type of ROY award then. Kiner's rookie year was exactly one year before they instituted the award (if memory serves).
