I personally loved Chris Sabo....that guy was wired a little differently. Anyone have any memories of him? I can't think of any offhand but I'm sure he did some wacky things.

Everett didn't spit on an umpire, he head butted him with the brim of his helmet. Brilliant move. Here are some quotes for my vote for craziest player...at least of this era. I'd have to go with Cobb all time.

Interleague play? "Don't like it," Everett responds. "They only have it because of two teams [the New York Mets and the New York Yankees]. It's all about the money." Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter? "Not a star." The Mets, one of his former teams? "All those [management] people are hypocrites and idiots." The Atlanta Braves' starting pitchers? "You can run on them all day." Big cities? "Hate 'em. I need space." American League baseball? "Boring." Dinosaurs? "Didn't exist."

Uh, come again?

"God created the sun, the stars, the heavens and the earth, and then made Adam and Eve," Everett said last Friday, before the Red Sox lost two of three in Atlanta. "The Bible never says anything about dinosaurs. You can't say there were dinosaurs when you never saw them. Someone actually saw Adam and Eve. No one ever saw a Tyrannosaurus rex."

What about dinosaur bones?

"Made by man," he says.

Everett has trouble, too, with the idea of man actually walking on the moon. After first rejecting the notion, he concedes, "Yeah, that could have happened. It's possible. That is something you could prove. You can't prove dinosaurs ever existed. I feel it's far-fetched."

two of my favorites ... ;-D

Nevermind the fact that Sportscenter got the closesup footage of "The Spitter" in the act, and proceeded to show it a million times, Old man Ryan kicking the chit out of a young Ventura is a classic and should be watched by any baseball fan at least 1 million times. :-D

Mark "The Bird" Fidrych used to talk to the ball on the mound and get on his hands and knees and groom the mound also 8-o

Oh yeah. I lost all respect for Pedro when he threw Don Zimmer to the ground. I was so angry that day and every news station showed it a million times.

Homer time...

Pedro could of killed Zimmer. Who rushed who again? Zimmer is lucky all he got was a little shove to the ground. Very lucky.

You are right about Zimmer rushing Pedro. Zimmer aplogized for rushing Pedro. I don't think Pedro should have thrown Zimmer to the ground like that though.

trippinonreality on some things

Pedro throwing zimm? could've killed him he got off easy. Everetts mindset? he needs to be locked away. Robin venturas beatdown? Never charge a 38 year old man that throws 96 mph. Alomar? a disgrace. Cobb? crazy but not the craziest there are double murderers out there. Nomars rituals? thats nothing did you ever see mike hargrove. Alou and Posada? thats just sick but if it were Pujols and Rolen I'd be pissing on my hands right now and signing a million dollar contract tomorrow.
