BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-09-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)from my era, I think the most unathletic players were Dick Stuart, Frank Howard, and Johnny Blanchard
(BobDD from Boise)
How about Harmon Killebrew? I always think of him as being a slugger whose glove had to be hidden, but I didn't see him so I could be misinformed. (Steven Goldman)
2008-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best nickname ever = Death to Flying Things. Second best nickname ever = Dr. Strangeglove.
(Justin Zeth from Altoona, PA)
Yeah, but I find it hard to feel too amused by Dick Stuart, who by all accounts wasn't a very good guy. Could we get a hand for Frank Thomas, "The Big Hurt?" I also really am amused by "Boots" Grantham, another nickname that, like Stuart's, referred to a lack of fielding ability. And "Catfish" Metkovich, which was acquired after Metkovich was attacked by a catfish. (Steven Goldman)
