Why so glum, Billy?

Sheepish Billy., originally uploaded by Minda Haas. This was Billy Butler receiving his Player of the Year award. He looks sheepish, or sad. And his tie…oh my goodness, I wanted to go re-tie it for him. (Click on photo for original, and lots more from the Royals Awards ceremony!)

Link of the Day: One BILLION seconds

Chris Jaffe noted that today, at some point, it will have been one billion seconds since the start of the Royals game in which Frank White’s hand and Al Cowens’ jaw got broken. Each were hit by pitches thrown by Ed Farmer. Thanks to Chris for digging up this strange factoid!
