2008-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rich Gedman was my favorite baseball player as a kid. Since I was a wee lad during his career, how do you remember him? His post '86 batting lines are too depressing for me to look at.
(rogerlamarque from Brooklyn)
As part of a really awesome lineup, from Wade Boggs leading off (no stolen bases "to speed things up" in Boston) to Dwight Evans at #2, all the way down to Marty Barrett, who wasn't an impact player but could at least slap .290-worth of singles. I also remember the injuries, principally a bad thumb, pretty much finishing Gedman at 25, a tough break for both him and the franchise. (Steven Goldman)
