Saw him play with the Expos twice. Too bad he couldn't figure it out with them instead.

;-D to a great career.

I hope so, but I doubt it. There's always at least one loser with a vote and a grudge. :-P

The only time I ever got to see RJ pitch in person was when he was on the Yankees. He got thrown out for arguing balls and strikes in the 2nd/3rd innings. :-b

I also saw The Rocket pitch in person once. He got tossed in the 5th/6th inning for throwing at Rios after Josh Towers nailed ARod the inning before...Such fond memories :-D
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

i saw the Rocket one in Detroit, i think it was his 2nd or 3rd "final" year with Houston, one inning he kept throwing over to first to hold the runner...after like 3 or 4 times the crowd really started booing, so he just kept tossing soft lobs over to 1st another 3 or 4 times :-b

If someone as beloved as Cal Ripken can't get 100%, I'm not sure that anyone can. Jeter would have a good shot, but I'm sure there are plenty of anti-Yankee bias amongst the writers.
