    Related to BYH's earlier question, if I'm not mistken, Scott Posednik went homerless in the '05 regular season then hit homers in the playoffs AND World Series.

    Also, one of the weirdest stats I heard this year was that Mark Beuhrle was the firs pitcher to throw a no-hitter without a single pitch reaching at least 90 mph. But I only heard it once, so I can't confirm it. Just struck me as a wild stat.

    Try this: Who was the first Toronto Blue Jay?

    Who was the first Montreal Expo?

    And what future Cy Young winner was selected in the 1969 expansion draft?

    I don't have to look this one up - the first Toronto Blue Jay was Phil Roof. They got him from the White Sox prior to the expansion draft.

    The future Cy Young winner in the 1969 expansion draft - Mike Marshall, drafted by the Seattle Pilots.

    There was also a future Cy Young winner in the 1977 expansion draft - Pete Vuckovich, drafted by Toronto. He later changed his name to Clu Haywood and won the Triple Crown while playing for the Yankees. :D

    I got more hits than Rod Carew.

    Twins and Halos.

    I thought of that, but neither are original franchises.

    And, to be a stickler, it's "I got mad hits like I was Rod Carew... Because you can't, you won't and you don't stop, MCA coming rockin' the sure shot..."

    Senators are, but that "franchise" is now in Texas, I believe.

    Interesting, but I still think the Rangers own the rights to sell "Senators" merchandise and the like.

    The Twins sure don't, and I thought that was part of the reason the new DC franchise couldn't use that name.

    Anywhoo, the Angels aren't, so it's moot.
