Wasn't Ryan Wheeler traded to the Rockies earlier in the season? Did you, perhaps, mean Matt Davidson?
Wow, this brings me back. I purchased a few packs of cards. Also, during my family's annual vacation to Florida, my father and I took a drive from Hollywood to somewhere (Fort Myers? Palm Beach, I don't remember) to catch a game. I remember seeing Rollie Fingers come on in relief and remember chasing him with a few other kids trying to get an autograph. I know it will sound terrible, but my only other memory of the game was that my father and I sat next to someone with a severly deformed head. Being 9 years old, I spent most of the game looking at the poor guys deformity. Per Wikipedia, At least five of the circuit's players (Ron Washington, Joaquín Andújar, Paul Mirabella, Danny Boone, and Ozzie Virgil, Jr.) signed major league contracts after playing in the Senior League, and at least three (Mirabella, Boone, and Virgil) played in the big leagues after their Senior League appearances.
Okay, thanks to Ben, I found this nice one: http://web.archive.org/web/20000302135455/http://www.baseballprospectus.com/news/20000211roundtable.html
The Keiths, Rany, Sheehan, Pease, Jeff Bower, and Jeff Hildebrand dissecting the Griffey trade. Holy moly! They crucified the Mariners for not getting Travis Dawkins, Scott Williamson or Rob Bell.
Ben, I think I love you. Thanks!
I think it is pretty clear that baseball as a whole is in much better shape, due to Selig's vision and forthrightness. This, by definition, means it is better for the players and fans.
It doesn't happen anymore, but once in a blue moon, for years, I would occasionally log on to the BP site (probably 4-5 times a year) and be greeted with a homepage from the past. I assume it was a programming bug, but it was REALLY cool seeing what was available on the site, say, on August 2, 2002. Any way to make it available again?
Mazal tov to you, Joe. You have a big fedora to fill. As for you, Sarge, I hope this means a 4-hour marathon podcast 2x weekly? Thanks for all your work over the years, guys!
What about that catcher from the turn of the century who went mental and killed his family and himself? Crazy story.
One of the best articles I have seen on this site. Me want more!! Thanks!
Also curious about Jaff Decker falling off a cliff. Some of the guys in my fantasy keeper league were all gung ho about him in April, but he appears to have completely fallen off a cliff (though not as badly as that other padres super-prospect Simon Castro). Hubris? Could it be that Decker's limited tool set doesn't translate too well above A ball?
Kevin, is your mom for real? No coaching involved? What a trip! I thought the two of you were going to piss your pants after a couple things she said, like a couple drunk high schoolers watching Looney Toons or something.
I was 9 years old living in the Chicago suburbs. I was watching the game with my close friend and we were drinking homemade milkshakes. My buddy was what we called back then a "spazz case", but in reality, he probably just suffered from what would now be diagnosed as ADHD and quickly dealt with by way of prozac. Anyhow, when Gibson hit the home run, my buddy immediately (almost unconciousnly...like it was just an unintended reaction) screamed and threw his vanilla milkshake against the wall of his den. The thing just exploded all over the wallpaper! We both started jumping up and down and running around the room. We weren't even Dodgers fans, we were just excited to witness something so historic and memorable.
Romanian Kosher Sausage Co. in Chicago (7200 North Clark in East Rogers Park) has been unchanged since it opened many years ago. Their Garlic Hot Dogs (boil them, then remove the plastic) are hands down the best hot dog I have ever eaten. Their Pastrami, smoked turkey and roast beef are amazing, as is the hard salami... and they ship. Just hope you have a good cardiologist because this stuff ain\'t health food. Visitng the store/factory is like a trip back to 1940\'s Brooklyn and is a trip. The REAL DEAL!
