One of the great pitchers of all time passed away at age 82. We'll know he's made it to heaven if after tomorrow we get two days of rain.



Let's put this in the plainest terms possible: Darryl Strawberry has no business instructing anybody about anything. He has never done a thing in his life to warrant a position of guidance. Not on the field. Not off the field.-- David Vescey, si.com

Spahn was one of the greatest Wisconsin sports figures of all time. He will be missed.

Glad to see people still remember him and the 1957 world champion Milwaukee Braves.

RIP, Warren. Say hi to Harvey Kuehn when you get there.



Star wipe, and...we're out.
Thrillin' ain't easy.

"Spahn and Sain and a day of rain, then Spahn and Sain again."

He was also the main cog in the great threesome of himself, Burdette and Buhl that led the tremendous Milwaukee teams of the late 50's.

What a team that was! Adcock, Shoendienst, Logan and Mathews first to third, Aaron, Covington and Bruton in the outfield (with help from Pafko) and Del Crandall at catcher.

Thomas Boswell of the Washington Post has a nice column up about Spahn in which he refers to him as the unknown immortal. The link follows.

He had two Orioles in a bearhug, and I think he got a few shots in. Hey, he's listed at 6'1" and a conservative 265, I think Cloninger can handle himself.
