Former big league pitcher Fred Talbot passed away on January 11th after a long illness. He was 71.
Talbot pitched from 1963 to 1970 with the Chicago White Sox, the Kansas City/Oakland A’s, the New York Yankees and the Seattle Pilots. He finished his career with a record of 38-56 with an ERA of 4.12 ERA.
Talbot is best remembered for his half season with the Pilots where he became a central character in Jim Bouton’s Ball Four.
I leave you with Bouton telling a story of how he and the Pilots bullpen sent Talbot a fake telegram after Talbot hit a grand slam which won a fan $25,000.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
