A moment, friends of the Blob, for Jose Pagan, who as all good Pittsburgh Pirates fans know drove in the eventual winning run in Game 7 of the 1971 World Series, the last moment of triumph for the Pirates of the immortal Roberto Clemente.
Pagan has died at the age of 76.
The Pirates' string of losing seasons, on the other hand, turns 19 this year.
Sorry. Couldn't resist.
