Folks may remember Billy Beane as the player the Tigers traded Balvino Gálvez for.

I remember Billy Beane was not to be confused with Billy Bean on the same 1988 Tiger roster.

Both Billy's would take turns batting clean up for the current Tigers.

It's funny.  I remember them being on the same roster too, but if you look at their game logs they don't come close to overlapping.  I think our memory is playing tricks with us.

One part of me wants this season to end and another part hates the idea of baseball ending.  

Since I find no chicken soup for the soul in baseball in general or in a post season in which my team is not involved it’s going to be really hard to only gnaw on the bleached bones of speculation until something with more meat on it happens at the beginning of March.

All I remember about them is that neither one was a very good MLB player.

I know Bean came out as gay and wrote a book about it.  I remember the media making a big deal about it.
