…and another thing, it’s high time to drop the “modern era” moniker for Baseball played during the last millennium. The modern era should start with the start of the 21st Century therefore Don Baylor, as one of those old timers stuck in the last century, does not hold the plunked record for the modern era… Biggio already holds it. Baylor is therefore lumped together with the likes of Hughie Jennings and Tommy Tucker. So, the standings should be as follows:

Hughie Jennings – 287*
Tommy Tucker – 272*
Donnie Baylor – 267*
Craig Biggio – 263

* (pre-modern era)

Let those pre-millennial cats live with an asterisks like Roger Maris had to for so many years.

In things like art and architecture, "modern" refers to an era that seems to have ended sometime in the 70s or 80s, so maybe Biggio is the post-modern record holder. Or, maybe this is our chance to come up with a name for the current era. For example, we could call it "The Medaisance", signifying the current reliance on medical technology from steroids to ligament replacement surgery to prolong and enhance players careers. It will make us look smart if baseball follows a path toward gene doping and cybernetic enhancement like some have speculated. We're already implanting Tommy John's ligaments in current players (Yes, I'm pretty sure that's what that surgery is), so how good are pitchers going to be when Clemens and Johnson retire and start cashing in their spare parts?
