One of my favorite baseball
After the 1935 season in which the Philadelphia Athletics finished dead last in the American League, Jimmie's team owner called him in and told Jimmie he was getting a paycut from $40,000 to $25,000.
Jimmie said, "But boss, I had a great year. I hit .346 with 35 home runs."
The team owner said, "That's true, but we could have finished last without you."
