Yesterday, there was a back and forth in cyberspace about the leadership over at the Harris County Democratic Party.  Hey, look at it this way, at least we didn’t get the kind of coverage that the Bexar County Democratic Party got in today’s SA Express News.  Check out the first line of today’s story:

Hall of Famer and Braves great Warren Spahn of course is the only lefty to ever win more than 350 games with 363.

If Bagwell had been a Dodger, Yankee, or Red Sox, he’d be a shoo-in today.
