It's 10:40 on Saturday night, and though I'm really looking forward to writing some postseason stuff, I'm rather fatigued, so I'll post briefly on other matters Frank Robinson will manage his final game on Sunday bringing to a close a career in baseball that spanned more than 50 seasons. There are a lot of things that could be said about Frank Robinson, but let's just offer up this piece of information, courtesy of MikeMav.com : Since 1957, no-player has had more walk-off RBI than Frank Robinson's 27.

It's a shame that his tenure ended with a season ruined
