DateQuestionAnswer
2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)I doubt Bernie Williams will ever get in to the HOF since he was usually overlooked on those Yankee teams (never finished high in MVP voting) and so he won't "seem" like a HOF to many of these voters...but do you think he has a decent case? He had maybe 8 great years in a row and was quite possibly the most valuable player on those Yankee teams from 1994 through 2002. At the very least, I guess with Jim Rice being in, Bernie definitely has a legit case for being in as well since he was clearly better than Jim Rice.
(Bern Wang from bernwang@hotmail.com)
Bernie's got four more World Series rings than Jim Rice, and the rest of his candidacy is hardly anything to be ashamed of. You'd be surprised what hitting .300 and playing center field for the World Champion Yankees can do for a guy's Cooperstown credentials. Not that it helped Mickey Rivers... (Jay Jaffe)
2009-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tomorrow it will be 37 years that Oscar Levant passed away. Who in baseball might be considered a parallel to Levant? Jimmy Piersall? Mickey Rivers? Not that either played piano as far as I know.
(Yatchisin from Tinsel Town)
This is my favorite question of the day. Golly, the closest comp to Levant probably couldn't play long enough for us to know who he was... Maybe Elmer Flick. (Steven Goldman)
