Ken Burns Baseball documentary is great in numerous ways...hell the "Shadow Ball" episode changed my life and my awareness of KC's place in baseball history. But when it comes to less serious aspects of the game....I think of first hearing the commentary of Bill "The Spaceman" Lee.

Bill Lee is AWESOME.
KC's Quiz was a free spirit like him too.
I miss Quiz a lot.

"The other day they asked me about mandatory drug testing. I said I believed in drug testing a long time ago. All through the sixties I tested everything." Bill Lee

" Gullet is going to the Hall of Fame. I'm going to the Eliot Lounge"

He was my favorite player on the Red Sox when I was a kid.

"Most of the managers are lifetime .220 hitters. For years pitchers have been getting these managers out 75% of the time and that's why they don't like us."
