2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Players aren't Strat cards, but I could swear the Yankee captain's legal name is "Derek Sanderson gb(SS)A"
(Mr. Richman from Greenport)
Aye, reminds me well of George Kell's 1950 card, where the entire two column was one flavor of gbA or another, except for the lineout-Max spot. The friend who drafted Kell had to endure a full season's worth of rolling a two with men on, but our replay of that AL season just confirmed what the season itself proved: whoever had Phil Rizzuto was going to win.
