Congratulations, Omar

We’re a bit late on this one, but I didn’t want to write much about it over the weekend.  But if you were anywhere near a TV or computer over the last 48 hours, you’re likely aware that Omar Vizquel is now the all-time leader for games played at shortstop – with 2,584 games under
