Interview with former Major Leaguer Bill "The Spaceman" Lee

Nope. I didn't get to interview him. I was looking for photos of Bill Lee and came across a website about the Alaska Goldpanners, a baseball he pitched for in 2008 (and may still). There was a quote concerning his thoughts about the loss of the Montreal Expos franchise which included the quote:

"It's a travesty to humanity. Greed and corruption are the reasons behind it, and the only way to save the world is through baseball. Had there been a franchise in Iraq most of the problems with Saddam could have been avoided. Baseball did the world a great justice by putting a team in Montreal, and now they want to take it away. It's wrong."

The interview in its entirety can be found at:

I have to admit, the man's pretty far out there. But then he was a good friend of the late Warren Zevon and the late Hunter S. Thompson.
