Really? I just had a drink with Joe Morgan , and he told me that I reminded him of Ken Griffey Jnr. And that Willie Mays was the greatest player he ever saw. And I said "thank you broken record robot". Then he saw that I support Oakland and accused me of being a computer.
Actually, it'd be pretty cool to run into some major-leaguers when out on the town.
A friend of mine said he was in Chicago once a few years ago and saw Rick Sutcliffe and a couple of other ex-Cubs hammered at a bar - this was about a year before that incident he had in the broadcast booth. Pretty entertaining stuff.
Actually, I agree with Billy Hall. I think it is fun to drink with coaches when you have the chance as well. I have had the chance a couple of times after clinics to drink with some accomplished coaches. Most of the time you find out they are just normal guys, but the experience is always fun. Just giving Orel a hard time.
