"Food. Sunshine. Fresh air. And Stathead. That's my list of four things I need every day to survive on this planet -- and maybe not in that order! I honestly can't remember life before baseball-reference and Stathead. There literally is not a day that goes by during the baseball season when I'm not digging into Stathead to solve another important "When's The Last Time That Happened?" mystery, to frame my latest trivia question or to put the greatness of some baseball hero in its proper perspective. It's the greatest invention since the 55-inch flat screen!"
