Joe--are u  eating  the same food as Robb?   You are  Robb Jr. Grin Grin Grin Grin

I collected and read the backs of 50s baseball cards for YEARS! You learned a lot of names and team associations. Why my lists were generally so weak on pre-1948 players. I'm sure the list of players is MANY times greater than the 2 names I came up with for STL and Philly. I knew more Chicago names because I followed the White Sox closely throughout the 50s, my favorite player in baseball being Nellie Fox.

I've got a Freshman and Senior grandson at Westlake HS right now.  Mike Lieberthal, long-time Phillies Catcher back in the 90s/early 00s went to Westlake too. Yelich is great!

Robb, have to admit that I don't know 95% of those names. And, the 5% I knew like Clark Griffith and Nap Lajoie and vaguely Bottomley and Lanier were from the Ken Burns documentary series. I still couldn't have told you which team(s) they played for.  Of course, I knew Dave Philley and Turk Lown from the 50s -- just missed them.

Amazing Yelich was a bit underthe radar--when Jeter dumped salary--Stanton & guy sent  Cardinals were mentioned--never Yelich!

I think we've listed enough to move on to my 3rd Baseball Quiz (although, I'm sure there were many, many more players that crossed the road to play with a city's rival team).

Joe--Stanton--3 more ks tonite--sometimes misses  by  2-3 feet--takes  pitches  right down the middle.   He need to see an eye dr-seriously.

Still thinks Yanks win in Game 5. Red Sox relievers are not good. Sox Starters (like the Yanks) are inconsistent. Can be excellent one game and shelled early the next. Dodgers and Brewers are impressing right now and Astros are doing their thing. Bud Black did a great job keeping Rockies close to the top of that Division all year but talent disparity shows now, especially away from Coors (as always)!

Stanton--never seen  a guy hit so many infield dribblers. 

Sanchez---WOW  479  ft.   1st  time i saw him interviewed  surprised he used interpreter. He's got to be the  lightest  skinned  Dominican  I've ever seen.[And I've ben to  his hometown  ---Santo Domingo.]    Had thot he was  P Rican.


Gregorious  isa trip--born in Netherland?

Born in Amsterdam, raised in Curacao. Reds and Dbacks must have been crazy when they let him go.

I've heard Sanchez do a brief interview in English and he handled himself just fine. I've observed several Hispanic ballplayers that sometimes conduct interviews in Spanish and sometimes in English, for whatever reasons.

More Stanton--he looked  worse  than  me  in trying to hit  a slider  last nite.   He is great in BP  or HR  derby--but?
