A Seventies music reference? Check. ("The tumbling Dice Man")
A "1918" reference? Check. ("The midgame rally now feels as though it happened sometime back in 1918.")
A reference to how much a player makes? Check. ("Acquired for the price of $103 million last winter")
A misleading use of a statistic? Check. ("Jake Westbrook, a 30-year-old righthander who went 6-9 in 2007." Wins are misleading. Westbrook had a slightly better than league average ERA.)
