2010-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could you give me a few words on a favorite 'could've been' team, please? Some team from history that not a lot of people know about but which was very good and could have been great, except...
(BL from Bozeman)
Sometimes someone will ask a question in a radio interview that begins, "Name five..." and my mind goes completely blank. I couldn't name five anything at that point. Name five fruits OR vegetables? Couldn't do it. Thus, though this is a question that I have thought about many times, at the moment I'm drawing a complete blank. I'll get back to this in a future YCLIU entry, because it's a fun one to play with. Two that DO come to mind: the 1922 Browns, a team that finished one controversial game behind the Yankees and had George Sisler, Urban Shocker, plus the fine outfield of Ken Williams, Jack Tobin, and Baby Doll Jacobsen. And how about the 1945 Senators, who finished 1.5 games behind the Tigers on a total of 27 home runs and a staff of knuckleball pitchers? Had Hank Greenberg gotten out of the service halfway through the season, they would have gone to the World Series.

Wendy: I know how you feel; no less so for us. If you ever have anything along those lines you want to raise by email, please don't hesitate to write. (Steven Goldman)
