A crack at four of the six AL East-ers...
-Obviously, my mancrush DJ
-Jorge Posada
-Mariano Rivera
-Doc Halladay

TR said...

Those are all correct.

And this might surprise you TJ, but Eric Hinske is not on the list.

Jerry said...

Vernon Wells?

(just thinking of guys I remember from when I knew a lot about baseball)

Geoff said...

Jason Varitek?

Geoff said...

And Tim Wakefield?

TR said...

Wells is on the list, as is Varitek.

The list is only for guys who have spent their entire career with the team. Wakefield was on the Pirates a million years ago, back when Bonds' head had a normal shape.

Lance Berkman

TR said...

Four names remaining.

Of the 3 in the NL, one is very very easy, one is fairly easy and one is tricky (b/c I didn't realize he'd been around 10 years).

The last AL one is harder to remember b/c he has fallen off the map in the last few years.

Whitney said...

Jimmy Rollins? I think he is in his 10th season only if you count his Sept call-up.

Whitney said...

Roy Oswalt?

Jerry said...

Eric Chavez?

Whitney said...

Todd Helton

Jerry said...

Ryne Sandberg?

Jerry said...

I was thinking Helton, but then I thought he might have been out of baseball for 2 years.

TR said...

Berkman is correct.

Whitney said...

Oh, yeah. Fucking Chipper.

TR said...

Helton and Chavez also correct.

The one nobody got is arguably the easiest non-Yankee on the list, our favorite Hooters waitress inseminator Larry "Chipper" Jones.

Whitney said...

Guess I eked that one in just under the wire.

Greg said...

Jerry: "Greg, just name a left handed pitcher."

Greg: (blink)

Niiiiice:

A New York Mets executive recently challenged one of club's minor league teams to a fight during a postgame clubhouse tirade, the New York Daily News reported, citing multiple sources with ties to the team.

Tony Bernazard, the team's vice president for player development, pulled off his shirt and challenged the Double-A Binghamton Mets in the tirade, about 10 days before the All-Star break. He in particular targeted middle infield prospect Jose Coronado, according to the report.

Binghamton had gone 1-6 during an early July homestand that coincided with the outburst, losing three of those games by at least seven runs. The team was 37-58 and in last place in the Eastern League Northern Division entering Wednesday's scheduled games.

Jerry said...

Tony Bernazard is a well-documented dick.

zoltan said...

I thought the Sox got Varitek (and Derek Lowe) in a trade with Seattle for Heathcliff Slocumb.

TJ said...

They sure did...

rob said...

varitek was a minor leaguer with seattle - didn't play for the big club.
