DateQuestionAnswer
2009-07-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)John, does the $1m cap before approval of the commissioner's office go back to the Charlie Finley sell-off of 1976? As as Sox fan, I remember being thrilled, if I recall correctly, of getting Joe Rudi and Rollie Fingers.
(Tim from DC)
You know your history. It does go back to Rudi and Fingers being sold to the Red Sox and Vida Blue getting sold to the Yankees. All the deal were voided before those players actually played in a game, though they did put on the uniforms of their "new" teams. (John Perrotto)
2009-03-30 18:30:00 (link to chat)Who was your first favorite ballplayer?
(Mike K from Athens, GA)
As noted earlier, my favorite player growing up was Jim Rice, and he was pretty much from the beginning of my fandom. Other favorites along the way (in the non-Indians category) have been John Valentin, Pedro Martinez, and a few inexplicable choices like Gary Allenson and Joe Hesketh. My least favorite player for decades was Joe Rudi, until I made a shocking discovery (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=2548). (Keith Woolner)
