For all that is decent...

...I beg Sid Hartman to never do TV again. His grasp of names and basic facts has totally eluded him.

The long time Star Tribune columnist, who will be 90 next year, appears every Sunday evening on the local CW program The Sports Show. Anyhow, Sid insists Billy Martin never managed the New York Yankees again after Martin was fired from the Oakland A's after the 1982 season.

As John Adams once said, "Facts are stubborn things."

The fact is, Martin had three different tenures with the Yankees after 1982.

billy martin was among the greatest, and a yankee so many times i cant see how somebody could forget it.

just remember, on any given year at random, billy was most likely a yankee, so just play the odds.
