Quick update

I'm just stopping by here to mention that the list of Hall of Famers and their first Major League home runs has been updated to reflect the additions of the three managerial greats who were just elected. Tony LaRussa never hit a Major League homer, but Bobby Cox and Joe Torre both did, and their first victims are both newcomers to the list (Gary Peters and Joey Jay, respectively).

This offseason has been pretty crazy so far, but to be frank, I just can't get excited about the 2014 season. After three straight years of crap, and the emergence of The Oligopoly, I feel like there's nothing to look forward to anymore. I have a feeling that 2014 is going to be a lot like 2013 was: A year where regular-season achievements are the only thing I'll have to root for. The possibility of a team I like winning the World Series is pretty slim.
