Which is GROSS. His tobacco wad grosses me out more than anyone else, ever. sad.gif And now that he's on the Yankees, I won't have to see it 18 times this year. Just 3-6 because I don't remember how many games against the Yankees we're playing tbh.

I wouldn't do it myself, but I kind of like the idea of one player in the league doing it.

I'll get to see it 18 times a year now. haha.gif

With that, it just occurred to me that I may be living in Ontario this summer and working a 9-5 job. I can watch pretty much all Jays games! (The last few summers, I've worked 11:30-8:00, and eastern games start at 4:00 here.)

Cabrera and Fielder seem to be really chummy already. I can get used to them batting back to back.

QUOTE
Maybe it was the way Prince Fielder showed up four days early for spring training.

Or maybe it was the massive home run he hit during batting practice -- a ball that soared at least 450 feet, smashing into the trees high over the rightfield fence, shattering a branch and prompting Miguel Cabrera to scream: "You hit that alligator!"

Or maybe it was the way Fielder hung out in the clubhouse Monday morning and looked so comfortable and relaxed, greeting the players and security guards and equipment guys and minor league catchers and, heck, anybody who walked by.

Or maybe it was the way Fielder and Cabrera seemed to build an instant connection. They were inseparable on their first day together. They played catch together and batted together and stretched together and did sprints together and at one point, after most of the clubhouse had cleared out, they stood arm in arm and took several pictures of each other with their cell phones. Can you imagine that Facebook update?
That's adorable. I want to see those pictures. lmao.gif

Fielder took a wrong turn, stopped, turned around and then approached the gate. "What's your name?" Fielder asked a security guard, shaking his hand.
I love hearing stuff like this.

QUOTE
Cabrera rushed to Fielder. "What's up?" Cabrera screamed.

Cabrera eagerly gave high fives to Fielder's sons.

"What's up?"

High five.

"What's up?"
QUOTE
"Look who we got!" Cabrera screamed to a crowd of fans behind a fence. "Look!"
wtf he sounds like a manic fan. lmao.gif

He got the hit that started the rally in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. He was one of the leaders on the Mets teams that contended and sometimes dominated in the mid-to-late 1980's. He was one of the final pieces to the Championship puzzle.

On a team where almost all of the players were all about sex, drugs and rock-and-roll, Gary was the goody-goody, optiing not to drink or engage in extra-martial acts. Where guys like Darryl Strawberry would be very moody, the youthful enthusiasm of The Kid would shine through his smile and through how hard he played every game, from the first pitch to the final out.

The way he fought cancer was reflective of the way he played The Game; he fought cancer to his last breath.

You might have passed on, but you live on through the legacy you have left behind. RIP Gary Carter, and Thank You for bringing a World Series Title to Queens. bye2.gif

Thursday, March 1st! We're getting to Florida on the 3rd but we're staying in The Villages, which is about an hour away from Lakeland. So the next day we're going straight from that hotel to Lakeland, and then we're getting our hotel (which is near Orlando) after the game. original.gif

You can't replace Santo, you copy his spirit. You find a way to find the good in everything, every day. You laugh at yourself as heartily as you laugh with others. You suffer without complaint and stand tall in the face of disappointment. You battle.

I'm all confused with the Cubs managers.

I could have sworn the 90s Cub Coach was the same as the 00's. But there were 2 that Sammy had as a manager?

JP Arencibia gets a tougher go than most baseball players in Toronto do. On the radio, Bob McCown says he needs to eclipse what he did last year (his rookie year, for crying out loud) offensively and continue to improve defensively to avoid being traded. We have a catching stud in AAA, but still. Tough crowd.

QUOTE(druth8x @ Feb 22nd 2012, 10:29 AM) *

Weird that the long time Cubs manager and Cards manager leave w/n a couple years of each other.

Most of the active "managing legends" retired the last two seasons. Joe Torre, Lou Pinella, Bobby Cox, and Cito Gaston (not widely appreciated in the U.S. but, with two World Series rings as Blue Jays manager, a baseball legend in Canada) all called it quits last year. It felt like TLR's and Terry Francona's retirement this year pretty much ended that wave of great managers, even though Francona probably went before his time.

Whom do people consider the best active managers? I'd say Mike Scioscia, Charlie Manuel, Joe Maddon, Ron Gardenhire, and Jim Leyland. All but Manuel and Leyland should be around a while. I also liked Bruce Bochy's "the hottest guys going right now bat--period" approach during the Giants' 2011 World Series win. You'd think that would be the rational way to coach in every sport, but it's not.

Sosa would have played under Lefevbre, Trebelhorn, Riggleman, Baylor, Lachemann, Kimm, and Baker. Just looking at that list, wow, the Cubs get around. haha.gif

^Thanks for that detailed post.

Ugh at all the gr8 managers leaving the past 2 years.

Oh wow Sosa had that many coach's (well Cubs time not Texas?)

Oh Baker is my 90s coach that I was remembering...Dusty Baker why do I think he's the same as Lou...do they share the same enthusiasm and love of his team and getting thrown out of games?


"El Hombre" Albert Pujols campaign put up by the Angels but Albert Pujols did not approve it and he's pissed b/c only Stan Musial should be labeled that.

Yeah, those were just the Cubs managers between 1992-2004. He just missed out on Don Zimmer. haha.gif

I don't think anyone will ever parallel Lou Piniella for outbursts and ejections. I remember when he took away first base and threw it in the dugout as Mariners manager. I don't know much about Dusty Baker, but I just remember him from the big Cardinals/Reds outburst last year or the year before.

Well, they're off to a good start. haha.gif It's insane he'll cost the owner more than the franchise purchase did.

Favorite manager right now is Joe Maddon. Love his approach to the game and how successful he's made the Rays. Definitely agree with the rest of your list too, Rowan. Leyland, Scioscia, Gardenhire are all fantastic and I wish any of them were the Braves' manager. The only one I'm iffy on is Manuel because I'm biased and he's the Phillies manager and groce.

I don't like our manager. sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif

Finally saw Moneyball! Loved it. bye2.gif

OH AND MY FAVORITE DUSTY BAKER AS A MANAGER MEMORY OF LATE is that marathon Reds/Phillies game last year that went to like 16 innings? I don't even remember but Charlie Manuel had WILSON VALDEZ pitching and Dusty Baker pulled some stupid shit and the Reds still lost. It was hilarious.
