Favorite Memory: The Gheri Curl - That was the greatest 'do in baseball!![/img]
Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball. ~Jim Murray
I was actually going to say Damaso Garcia. I'm surprised you didn't name a certain player known as Moooookieeeeee. I can think of my favourite memory with him..........I bet all the Red Sox fans here can too
And my first words as a baby were actually "Microwave" and "Damasooooooooooo Garciaaaaaaaa". Strange but true.
"Jack, will you call me, if you're able?"

Our family cat had a litter of kittens and we kept the biggest one. My brothers and I decided to name the cat after the first proper name we heard when we left the room. My Dad was in the living room watching the 92 (I think) All Star game and the cats' namesake had just been brought in to pitch.
We still have that fat bastard cat, Juan Guzman, to this day.
Well, I don't know if its really that funny, but when I was a kid, I really liked Juaqin Andrujar. Remember when he took a roper off the knee, then went into the club house and rubbed snake oil on it. His alternative medicine seemed to humor people at the time. I also liked Willie Wilson and Amos Otis of the Royals. Bob and Ken Forsch also come to mind (only brothers to both throw no-hitters). You gotta like Oscar Gamble's Fro. I still have his 1980 Topps card, just for the fro. I also like Mickey Rivers. Never before have I heard a man speak English where I didn't understand a word. He's not real old school, but I always liked Lenny Dykstra, can someone tell me how that white boy was so speedy? Does anyone remember Sixto Lezcano (sp)? How about Dan Quisenberry?
