Mel Ott, Ron Gant, Terry Steinbach

Andy K, Monday, 21 April 2008 17:05 (eleven years ago) link

Red Schoendienst, John Tudor, Scott Erickson, PAT TABLER

also: Puchy Delgado, whose name is in desperate need of an N -- maybe Red can give one up!

luis tiant is the clear winner and after that i guess it's papelbon. then hal schumacher. the most recent "decent" players are dale sveum and brook jacoby, which just reminds me of being pissed off whenever i opened a pack of baseball cards and saw their utility mugs staring at me instead of a griffey jr card.

omar little, Monday, 21 April 2008 17:09 (eleven years ago) link

Hall of Famer Ted Lyons, Ray Knight, Spaceman Lee, Count Sensenderfer

joe randa and some guy named ty cobb.

j.q higgins, Monday, 21 April 2008 17:13 (eleven years ago) link

ha -- omar, you'll be happy to know that I found a Griffy Jr rookie card in the first overpriced '89 Upper Deck pack I bought (and then traded it to my BFF for a load of shit -- fuck you Todd Zeile)

David R., Monday, 21 April 2008 17:13 (eleven years ago) link

u coulda been Pirates GM all these years!

Dr Morbius, Monday, 21 April 2008 17:16 (eleven years ago) link

lol too-large chunks of my allowances were wasted on "investments" in the likes of zeile, steve avery, and future cubs star ty griffin. i did get some temp bank with david justice and frank thomas w/those leaf rookies. ^_^

omar little, Monday, 21 April 2008 17:17 (eleven years ago) link

Keep hope alive, Morbs -- Toronto or SF might need one soon!

Ben McDonald & Phil Plantier RIP

David R., Monday, 21 April 2008 17:19 (eleven years ago) link

I can't believe someone beat me to 12/28. BJ Ryan and Bill Hall are active players I basically enjoy as well.

julio franco

jergïns, Monday, 21 April 2008 17:50 (eleven years ago) link

Ivey Wingo, Reds backstop, of the championship 1919 world series team. John Bowker, who is .364/.400/.864 career. Clearly both awesome players! Also, Alan Ashby who caught a record 3 no-hitters, that must require some skill!

francisF, Monday, 21 April 2008 18:01 (eleven years ago) link

gooooooose gossage

Mr. Que, Monday, 21 April 2008 18:02 (eleven years ago) link

Ugh: only Maury Wills, Earl Wilson of any real note (Eddie Gaurdado, I guess?)

Also Spec Shea, aka The Naugatuck Nugget.

xpost my mitt is a Goose 'signed' edition.

G00blar, Monday, 21 April 2008 18:09 (eleven years ago) link

Early Wynn the only January 6er of note, followed not-so-closely by Norm Charlton and Ralph Branca. "Active" players include Casey Fossum and Scott Thorman. Eww.

govern yourself accordingly, Monday, 21 April 2008 18:19 (eleven years ago) link

Cal Ripken is most notable although Harry Hooper was the pride of Santa Cruz.
