2010-08-24 14:30:00 (link to chat)Of all MLB players, past and present, who was the illest rapper?
(BA from Bronx)
Rafael Santana, hands down. Here's the proof: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpvufrpAhls. (Ben Lindbergh)
2008-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Illustrations in general, I can live without. But illustrations of hideous 80s uniforms, with someone waxing poetic for the return of the Padres' puke brown and yellow, or that orange nightmare the Astros wore? Sign me up! BTW - Frank Crosetti has got to be the starting SS for the Joe Dugan All-Stars, right?
(Shaun P. from Medway, MA)
Nah, Crosetti was actually decent at times. He had a good fielding reputation and took a lot of walks. If you want a shortstop, how about Rafael Santana, '86 Mets? (Steven Goldman)
