2008-10-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Steven: when comparing this year's Phillies to the the 1915 NL Pennant-winning Phillies, who plays the Possum Whitted role? It's gotta be Jayson Werth, right?
(Matt from Chicago)
Wow. I'll ask Goldman and let you know. Maybe lining up Goldman to Goldstein chat's back to back was a mistake. That's Goldman, he's the guy who knows about teams in the 1910s and Hitchcock movies of the 40s and has a lot of writing talent. I'm the dork who talks to scouts a lot and talks about things like fringy and pitchability and sometimes turns it in to semi-coherent sentences on the page. (Kevin Goldstein)
