DateQuestionAnswer
2008-09-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Maury Wills is on the list too. Please. Yes or no on Dick Allen?
(JKGaucho from Washington, DC)
Yes on Allen. The character stuff is overblown and the production was amazing, if slightly disgused because of the era. My pal Allen Barra made a good argument about this in "It Ain't Over." (Steven Goldman)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hiya Christina ... happy Pennant Race to you! Worst in-game manager: a) Ned Yost b) Clint Hurdle c) other
(dianagramr from NYC)
Hi Diana, happy pennant races to you too. I know Yost and Hurdle get banged on, but I saw Jim Essian, and skip(s), you're no Jim Essian. That said, I'd like to spend some more time looking at boxes from Maury Wills understandably similarly brief and bad tenure running the Mariners. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm saddened by that Raines result. Off the top of your head, how many less deserving 1st ballot players have had better vote totals?
(lexomatic from True North)
Steve Garvey at 41.6 percent stands out, as does Maury Wills at 30.3 percent. (Jay Jaffe)
