          Frank Robinson 1966; Alex Johnson 1970. In 1970 Johnson beat out Yaz for the title hitting .3289 to 3286. In the last game of the season for the Angels Johnson went 2 for 3 beating out a high hop infield single in the 5th inning and was sat down after that. Yaz's season ended the day before.

            Not sure I've ever seen this before. In the 7th inning of their game today the Mets swapped out all 9 players in their lineup, but the pitcher (Scherzer) stayed the same.

                  Twins add Chris Archer. If he can stay healthy he might be a useful #5.

                        Jesus, just remove a base. It will increase scoring FOR THE CASUAL FAN!!!

                          I think it’s a good idea. If first and third’s distance is measured by the end of the bag, then it makes sense to have second base be there same. It’s consistency 135 years on the making.

                            Agreed. This was one of those "Holy sh**, it's been wrong all this time?" moments.

                                Yeah wouldn't it have just been easier to do this correctly way back when? The way they had it seemed more complicated.
