Leave it to Yankee fans to highjack a thread and make it their own...That seems about right...
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

I like the small scrappy players who get more out of their talent than they should. Call it the "Rudy" syndrome.

I've always liked Joe McEwing and David Eckstein.

He did all the little things that never showed up in a box score, got the big hit when needed, and just all-around played the game the right way. Honestly things really started going downhill when they dealt him away and went with Cirillo and then Beltre. I think he was more valuable than anyone ever gave him credit for.


i cant believe someone just said that david bell was their favorite player considering that hes probably my VERY LEAST favorite player.

Those are some of my favorites. Can't believe I forgot Tino! I love seeing him on Baseball Tonight now...he's not the greatest analyst, but it's fun seeing him on there.

AAAAHHH! YEEEAH! Those guys were great... class acts too. These are the years and guys that turned me onto baseball and being a Yanks fan in college.
I was in Los Angeles, and the team was playing in San Diego, but I didn't know it. I had taken LSD at noon. I thought it was an off-day. At 1pm, my girlfriend and trip partner looked at the paper and said, "Dock, you're pitching today!"

David Cone. Loved that guy. I can't believe he's not an analyst somewhere. Always so smooth with the press.

He was a stud, but I very much doubt he'll be a HOFer.

Dave Roberts and Erstad.

Two down and dirty, nitty gritty ball players who were so fun to watch.

-Brad Fullmer, he just looked like a badass with the pine tar covered helmet and a mean look on his face stepping into the batters box.

-Darin Erstad, fun watching him play CF -- BOOOO to 1B! Loved watching the college punter truck Johnny Estrada last season...crazy hit.

-Hideo Nomo when he was awesome with the Dodgers. The Tornado was sickness.

-I like watching all the Dodgers' prospects come up like Ethier, Aybar, Broxton, and Martin...soon, Billingsley.
