No, Cal: think Nolan Ryan, not Johnny Bench. Two days after his retirement Cal Ripken, Jr. is on QVC hawking Bobble Head versions of himself, among many, many other things. "This Cal Ripken Bobble Head doll will celebrate Cal Ripken's career." Oh Lord.

Baseball fans out there will understand a little about my personality when I say that by Sunday I was completely sick of hearing about Gwynn and Ripken, the two most overrated players of my lifetime, and that I stayed up until 1:30 a lot of nights in August and September checking Rickey Henderson's line in the box scores, counting the runs until he broke Ty Cobb's record.
