I then spent 30 minutes explaining the glittering Polish culture and how World War II wouldn't have been won without the code breakers who figured out the German Enigma machine under Polish mathematician Marian Rejewski. 

 

Oh come on you know darned well it was the Americans who captured an enigma machine, from a German submarine.

That movie really burns the commonwealth types.

Read this book. Great read, regardless of whether you are of Polish descent like I am. Also gives good context as to how and why the famous scenes of Polish cavalry fighting in the early days made total sense on limited basis for that terrain and was not at all a sign of backwardness.

The Polish squadrons in the Battle of Britain, the Home Army in Warsaw August 44'...that story just burns anyone who reads it.  The Polish Airborne Bde at Arnhem.  The Poles in the Allied armies in Italy wanted to fight through Italy via Trieste to help liberate Poland from the South but could not because of Cold War exigencies.   Poland got the rawest deal in WWII. 

So, we all agree that its dumb that a foul ball over the backstop being called a Polish home run is insulting to such a glittering culture without which there would be no civilization.

Its like my admin being upset when I call her sexy.  Can't win.   :--)

I have a friend whose father died about 20 years ago and in the obituary it stated very strongly, for those who didn't know, that my friend's grandfather "had been murdered by the Russians in the Katyn Forest in 1940" , which is another one to add to the list.

For sure.   The soldiers who survived Soviet captivity had to find their way to the British army to actually fight via Iran as I recall.

I'd have to look at the numbers more closely, but I'm guessing BABIP was  pretty unkind to him earlier in the year as well tho.

I'd guess his overall stat line is probably a decent snapshot of who he is. Which may be enough for him to be in that conversation as a reserve.

April was unkind to him.
