  • So says SI Correspondent James Murray, emboldened by the booming bats of the Nationals in a week of 132 home runs. The formulator of Murray's Law, which sees baseball history as a series of recurrent cycles, Murray is no junior circuit upstart but a deadly serious fan who (in the days before his current disenchantment) named his oldest son for Ted Williams. Fan Murray is fully prepared to defend his stand all summer long, if need be, against all serious dissenters. His only request is that all letter writers include, as prima-facie evidence of their true qualifications and earnestness of purpose, either the used stub of a big league admission ticket or the tuning knob of their TV set
