They were separated by a few years in the magazine; but you might remember seeing a suspiciously similar New Yorker panel here not so long ago.

Is there any logic in making this reference about a team that not only hits well year after year, but is famous for doing so?
Now, if you wanted to make a reference to not being able to get a runner in from third base with nobody out, that would be another matter: but this makes less sense than claiming that all New Yorkers wear black.

In 1972, New York Yankees ace pitcher Fritz Peterson and Yankees not-quite-ace Mike Kekich traded wives (and families and homes and dogs). Peterson and Kekich’s wife are still together to this day, while things didn’t work out so well for the other couple.
This was still back in the day when stories like this could be kept relatively quiet.
Ben Affleck now owns the rights to the story, and he might star in the film along with Matt Damon. Now, as much as I’m a non-fan of both Affleck and Damon, and I hate the two of them together, I am absolutely first in line to see this.

Two people asked me if whether I knew of any special significance to what appears to be a Satchel Paige tribute. Sunday was not, after all, the anniversary of his birth, death or first game in the major leagues. Paige was the subject of a new biography earlier this month, but that’s all I could find.
