Baseball is a sport with a lot of numbers, and these numbers tell many different stories. They tell tales of triumph and tragedy, of heroes and of goats.

It's not hard to tell the heroes and the goats apart. Generally speaking, the heroes are the ones with big numbers, and the goats are the ones with small numbers.
