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.

no one expected him to be a run producer. we expected .280 15 hr 70 rbi some clutch hits and steady defense and all aspects of his guys have deteriated to the point where he is absolutely worthless (minue the 5 rbi last night) surprisingly this year(contract year) hes been playing ok but id say hes not a starter in this league after this season.

i realize he wasnt your FAVORITE but its just funny how the tables can turn and someone actually valued him more than used chewing tobacco.

He was never my absolute favorite player, but I enjoyed watching him play and seeing what he brought to the game. Look, you Philly fans got in over your heads. You signed him to a big contract, expecting him to come in and be a run producer. That's not his game, never was, never will be. What he did in Seattle was provide great D, clutch hits (if there is such a thing), and play the game the way it was meant to be played. He was a hard-nosed guy who got his uniform dirty, and I enjoyed him immensely.

Kevin Youkilis has been my boy since hes gotten into the league. After reading Moneyball right aftter it came out, I have beena huge fan. Also, I liked Shea Hillenbrand a lot when he was with the Sox.

It doesn't get any better than that.

I think I need a tetinus shot.

I don't know, Dick Harden comes close...

Someone talking about video games reminded me of this...
On one of the old Sammy Sosa High Heat games I'd always bat something like .450 with 75 doubles with Jon Nunnally. Never understood why. To this day I still think of Jon Nunnally as a perennial doubles hitter. :-b

Paul O'Neil both as a Red (my hometown team) and later as a Yankee.
Dave Collins (I love speedsters)
Chris Sabo (wasn't that good but played his heart out)
Charleton, Myers and Dibble - The Nasty Boys
Ryne Sandberg (ok, he's great but as a Cubs fan I have to throw that one out there)
Greg Maddux (his pitching is sheer artistry)
Randy Johnson early in his career when he was feared due to the fact that NO one (including him) knew where the ball was going
Ozzie Guillen (he hit a home run in the Astrodome in a Pursue the Pennant game for me once...a 1-1,000,000 shot that I always reference in any discussions about birth control ;) )

That's about it off the top of my head but if I thought about it some more I could come up with quite a few more I'm sure. :D
