Oops, meant to put that in the regular thread. Not so much that I get them mixed up but when I’m trying to think of the word for the former I never get past the stage of evoking the latter and knowing it’s phonetically similar. I also think confit is in the mix somewhere, in that particular dusty hallway of my brain

I never get them mixed up because, until today, I'd never heard of Sam Prekop.

Bill Madlock
Bill Buckner

But if you just knew them as names on Baseball Reference, I could see where you might: they were both Cubs in the '70s, both had numerous .300+ seasons (Madlock 11, Buckner 8), both won batting titles, both cleared 2,000 hits (2,700 for Buckner, just over 2,000 for Madlock), neither was much of a HR hitter (10-15 a season), nor much with the glove, and their careers overlapped (Buckner started four years earlier and lasted three years longer). Madlock was the far superior player, and he didn't spend his life living down one play. At a distance, though--and if you didn't know Madlock was Black and Buckner white--their names and resumes aren't all that dissimilar.
