2009-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know you weren't talking about the Bob Johnson that the Royals got from the Mets with Amos Otis then magically turned into Freddie Patek a year later, but it sure is fun for a Royals fan to think about that trade.
(BL from Bozeman)
Yup, I meant Indian Bob Johnson, who mostly played for the Philly A's at a time when that was a one-way ticket to not getting a postseason share. Had he been a Yankee or a Dodger he'd have a retired number and maybe a spot in Cooperstown. (Steven Goldman)
2008-02-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Loved the Fun with Comparables column... can you work at this backwards, and give me a good current comp for some of my all-time favorites - how about Amos Otis, Sam Crawford, and Earl Averill?
(Bill from MT)
See my most recent unfiltered post and some comments earlier in this chat... Something like this is coming over time. (Steven Goldman)
