    Re: Major League Baseball 2010

    Dave Niehaus, the Voice of the Mariners, the Voice of Summer, has died at age 75 of a heart attack. He broadcast the first game of the new franchise in 1977 and the last game of this horrible 2010 season. He was Mr. Baseball in Seattle, a friend to all and a mentor to many. He won the Frick Award for announcing and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Listening to Dave Niehaus on the radio was better than a seat at the park. He brought the game to life with his magical voice and wonder verbal pictures. He will be deeply missed and never replaced. He is survived by his wife, children and grandchildren, who so graciously loaned him to baseball from February to October. Somewhere in Heaven Dave will get to call that World Series game.

    Voting for baseballís major awards must be completed before the first game of the playoffs. This means that Roy Halladay earned every first-place vote for the National League Cy Young Award ó and then pitched the game of his life.
    Halladay's won the Cy Young. He's the 10th unanimous award winner, and he's won it before in the other league. Philly's proud tonight!

    YES !

    We got to rent Cliff Lee for awhile this year in Seattle, Watching him and Felix pitch every fifth day was the only good part to the season. Not only is he an incredible pitcher, he is an incredible person and (gasp ) roll model.

    I am so thrilled that he is going to Philladelphia. I really did not want him to be a Yankee! :nono Seems all our good players who we can no longer afford go off to Philadelphia.

    Indians legend Bob Feller dies at 92 | The Columbus Dispatch

    I had the pleasure of meeting him when I attended my first major league game at Cleveland Municipal Stadium. The man was definitely a legend. Three no hitters, the only one ever on opening day and 12 one hitters he was a Hall of Fame pick in his first year of eligibility. RIP Rapid Robert.

    CLEVELAND -- Bob Feller, the Iowa farm boy whose powerful right arm earned him the nickname "Rapid Robert" and made him one of baseball's greatest pitchers during a Hall of Fame career with the Cleveland Indians, has died. He was 92.

    Feller died at 9:15 tonight of acute leukemia at a hospice, said Bob DiBiasio, the Indians vice president of public relations.

    Remarkably fit until late in life, Feller had suffered serious health setbacks in recent months. He was diagnosed with a form of leukemia in August, and while undergoing chemotherapy, he fainted and his heart briefly stopped. Eventually, he underwent surgery to have a pacemaker implanted.

    In November, he was hospitalized with pneumonia and Feller was recently released into hospice care.

    Even as his health deteriorated, Feller continued doing what he loved most - attending Indians games deep into last season.

    "Nobody lives forever and I've had a blessed life," Feller said in September. "I'd like to stay on this side of the grass for as long as I can, though. I'd really like to see the Indians win a World Series."

    Feller, in fact, was part of the rotation the last time the Indians won it all - in 1948.

    Fiercely proud and patriotic, Feller was an American original. He won 266 games during 18 seasons - all with the Indians, who brought him up to the majors as a 17-year old. Feller's win total remains a Cleveland team record, one that seems almost untouchable in today's free-agent era.

    Feller was part of a vaunted Indians' rotation in the 1940s and '50s with fellow Hall of Famers Bob Lemon and Early Wynn. He finished with 2,581 career strikeouts, led the American League in strikeouts seven times, pitched three no-hitters - including the only one on opening day - and recorded a jaw-dropping 12 one-hitters.

    His numbers would no doubt have been even greater had his career not been interrupted by World War II.

    The first pitcher to win 20 games before he was 21, Feller was enshrined in Cooperstown in 1962, his first year of eligibility.

    The Indians retired his No. 19 jersey in 1957 and immortalized the greatest player in franchise history with a statue when they opened their downtown stadium in 1994. The sculpture is vintage Feller, captured forever in the middle of his patented windmill windup, rearing back to fire another pitch.
