    Strange that just 4 are prior to 1985.

  2. Chuck Says:

    wink, wink.

    Scranton’s playing a doubleheader tonight..Betances in the first game, Banuelos in the second.

    I strangely could give a bleep.

  4. Raul Says:

    When either of them can go 7 innings, I’ll start to care.

  5. John Says:

    @1, there are 30 teams, 26 of which existed before 1985, and since then there’ve been 52 total seasons of baseball between the AL and NL.

    So you’d expect that, on average, every team would have about two except for the four expansion teams.
