    Episode 49 - Cooperstown Calling

    Well Rice is finally in the Hall. Now what do we bitch about? Plenty. The NFL coaching carousel continues to spin. More pieces continue to get pulled out of Foxboro. The Celtics and Bruins are back to their winning ways. Last but not least Billy Corey and Coach K have something else in common besides coaching? Find out what it is on another nonsense packed episode of Wicked Pissa Dude Radio. Thanks for listening and tell you friends.

    Good show, gents.

    The point I try to emphasize about the steroid thing is that there are all kinds of skew inherent in baseball's numbers.

    From 1876-1947 not all the best players were allowed to play.

    From 1900-1919 the game was essentially fast pitch softball-spitballs were legal, and the cover practically had to come off before you got a new ball.

    From the 1970s on, you have the evolution of the closer and specialized relievers.

    From the mid 1990s-to the mid 2000s, you have steroids, but also smaller ballparks, expansion, and a strike zone about the size of a dinner plate.

    So all of baseball's numbers, and all of life, really, has to be viewed in the CONTEXT of the game within which they were accomplished.
