With my Redbirds down 2-0 in the series this helped lift my spirits:

3. Dizzy Dean (1930, 32-37) When the 19-year-old Dizzy made his first start in 1930, St. Louis mayor Victor Miller asked manager Gabby Street if the phenom was as good as people said. "I think he's going to be a great one, Mr. Mayor," Street said. "But I'm afraid we'll never know from one minute to the next what he's going to do or say." True. Dean once walked into the Giants clubhouse before a game to tell his opponents how he intended to pitch to them, then threw a shutout. <snip>

I really enjoyed those.  They had the Red Sox one on Friday.  I always read that site each morning before work starts.

1. Bill Lee (1969-78) -- Could a player this eccentric have been anything but a left-handed pitcher? The Spaceman was in an orbit all his own. At various times he wore -- on the field -- a gas mask, a Daniel Boone cap and a beanie with a propeller. Grew a Fu Manchu mustache but insisted it was a Ho Chi Minh. Long a devoted pot-smoker, he claims to have toked with President Bush. Of course, he also says that the CIA has a dossier on him, that the Bible is fiction and that the royal Stuart family of Scotland is directly descended from Jesus Christ.

Bill Lee's autobiography, "Spaceman," was a pretty fun read. I've never been able to look at Don Zimmer without thinking about a giant gerbil.
