Trivia TidbitMajor League Baseball has a rule which allows teams, with some restrictions, to trade a player away and receive a yet-to-be-determined player in return; the two sides decide on the second player later on. Those trades involve what is now called a “player to be named later,” and typically are resolved without any consternation from either side. But in 1962, a strange thing happened. On April 26 of that year, the Cleveland Indians sent catcher Harry Chiti to the then-expansion New York Mets for cash and a player to be named later. Chiti played fifteen lackluster games for the Mets, and on June 15, the Mets completed the trade — by sending Chiti back to the Indians as the player to be named later.  via

  • Safe to say he was a Chiti player.

    It never fails that when I like a TV show, it gets cancelled. I think that ‘The Finder’ is well written and funny. It is ashamed that FOX is up to their old tricks of ‘skipping’ weeks in between showings. How are shows supposed to get a following using that strategy? Also, my favorite cop show is ‘The Glades’ on A&E, but nobody knows about it because of its network and its odd schedule, from June to August. And why does American Idol keep going? It hasn’t had a mega talent since Carrie Underwood six years ago…

      I like The Finder, I like the way it’s written, I like the stars of it, I watched Geoff Stults in October Road, which was another series which didn’t last long. For some reason they do always take all the good stuff off the air, TV execs are either stupid or crazy or have no taste. They cater to a young crowd it seems. Not everyone is 20 years old.

      In case all y’all haven’t noticed there are NO good shows on “broadcast” TV.

      All the good ones are on cable; Breaking Bad, Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, Borgias, Hung, South Park, Daily Show, etc. etc.

      I don’t get them all, but I like it better to watch a whole “season” later on DVD (no commercials, no “cliff” hangers, just play the next one). The seasons are relatively short (8-12 weeks), but I’ll take quality over quantity anytime.

      Yeah, it goes without saying that Finder’s near the top of my list.

    Jonco – your link to ‘Banned from Miss Universe’ doesn’t go anywhere.
