    Sherm Lollar had a higher fWar than Clemente?

    I love stats.

    Dude's numbers look less impressive than I remember. He didn't walk for shit. Didn't steal bases or hit homers (35 career). Didn't drive in runs. Decent average I guess at .288. Konerko ended with a .279. So Nellie must have been all defense.

    Was this like the white guys' 1950 version of Ozzie Smith?

    Fuller Trump had no ideas, he just went too far

    What the stats don't show is that Nellie Fox was clutch! A kind of prehistoric Joe Crede, if you will.

    Corey Hart will be inducted into the Brewers Wall of Honor at Miller Park. So we at least don't take this shit that lightly.

    That's very different than number retirement. The criteria to get on that is very easy.

    2,000 or more PA's seems like a very low bar. That's basically 4 full seasons. With that criteria, Gordon Beckham, Adam Dunn, Alex Rios would get in if the Sox did this.

    Didn't really how many no hitters the Sox have had. I guess if been around since the start of the century, you'd rack up a lot in the dead ball era.

    This is one of those events that if you were to poll everyone; like 100k would say they were there when it was really 25k paid.

    I don't even think there was 25k in the stands for that game.

    I was splitting season tix with a friend at the time. He was supposed to go with his brother. Brother backed out and I begrudgingly went because it was cold ballz out.

    27 outs later.

    We were walking in and my brother in law didn't have his ticket; must have dropped it somewhere. INR said "here take this one" and we sat in the left field bleachers as was the style at the time.
