A lovely vase with a comical illustration, made a thousand years after the demise of the great Minoan civilization in Crete. The Minoans are now considered by many to be Plato’s lost Atlantis, the volcanic eruption of Santorini destroying their ships in harbor at Crete with a tsunami, and ending the first great European culture.

But I digress. Having bought and marked up every edition of Total Baseball since 1989, will there be an update soon? The suspense is killing me :)

The suspense is killing me too. Shooting for a radically reconceived Total Baseball 9 (20th anniversary edition) in 2009. Thanks for your interest and support.
