Yesterday's paper:

"Sosa ties F. Robby as O's end skid (http://www.suntimes.com/output/baseball/cst-spt-al27.html)"

F. Robby? Stop it. Now.

Oh good Lord. What the hell is going on with sports media ? Has the Sun Times become "Stuart Scott-ized ?"

Maybe they didn't have enough room to print "Robinson"?

I've seen the name in headlines as F. Robby since I was a kid.

That's good enough for me, then.

He was visiting Fran Thom.

Seriously? I was a big Brooks Robinson fan as a kid and don't remember that.

Then again, it's not like I perused the Tribune or Sun-Times regularly as a 6-year-old.

Yup, F. Robby and B. Robby.
