Remember our discussion about lucky numbers? 4 and 14 actually come out of 41, which is my true lucky number, and the number of the apartment I once lived in when I was young.
Without any further clues, and being the baseball statistician you are, can you guess who my favorite baseball player of all time is?
There are two Hall of Fame members who sported #41...
I would like to guess Seaver.
Do I seem that old to you?But... I'm going to say that it's "Jack Chesbro". The only modern-day (although not so modern anymore) 41-game winner. Mr. Chesbro did this in 1904 with the New York Highlanders. That's my guess.
Daffy was right on the mark, and I bet you knew it too but decided to make it more interesting
Do I seem that old to you?
Tough call. Plus I'd probably add Bob Gibson to make this a trio...Question: Who would rank as being greater, Seaver or Clemens?
I was born in New Jersey But I ain't NEVER going back again - ever since the casinos arrived, the state has gone straight to hell.Is it safe to say, that prior to living in Heaven, you once lived in N.Y.?
You mean, there was a time when New Joisy wasn't hell?spearmaster said:I was born in New Jersey But I ain't NEVER going back again - ever since the casinos arrived, the state has gone straight to hell.
Gibson - never made the most of his talent and didn't always have a good supporting cast. But he was arguably one of the best pitchers of his time.
Ryan - same - going to Anaheim ruined his career.
Bruce Grobelaar?spearmaster said:Joltin' Joe, alias Mr. Marilyn (LOL) would definitely be my choice as well
Now, does anyone remember who "gifted" the Mets their last World Series?
I'm not so sure it was unfairly pinned on him, though he definitely didn't belong in the field at the time. And I felt really, really sorry for him, and even more so for the Red Sox... which is why I was actually elated when they finally claimed the Series.johnsteed said:***
Unfairly put on him though. Why?
a) He shouldn't have been in the game, he was injured at the time.
b) Others were making critical mistakes, as well.
Poor 'ol Billy Buckner (a very solid player for a good number of years) will forever be dubbed a loser.
Do I get that free dinner again?
Now, you see... Why can't they turn make that a casino game? And someone has GOT to make "'UNO" a casino game as well.Macgyver - once upon a time, New Jersey was the playground of the East Coast - keep that in mind everytime you get an "Advance to Boardwalk" Chance card in Monopoly
But since 1977, the year I left, it has gone nothing but downhill, save for when Bill Bradley was governor.
And what kind of teams did he face? Leaving the National League at that time was like going to an inferior league... LOL...Won 20 games twice and 19 twice with Anaheim.
