    Tom Greenwade? I believe he also had a hand in "discovering" Campy, Jackie, Hodges, Kell, Erskine, AND Elston Howard
    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

    In a 2004 Yankees game the Yankees played the Padres. The Yankees won, but it was a good pitchers duel between 2 pitchers. Who are they? It can help if I told you they both had the numbers 33 on.

    OK, I was looking at the final scores, not what the starters did. It was a pretty good pitching duel for the STARTERS, my bad

    Don Baylor with 24 in 1985
    "The one constant through all the years has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past. It reminds us of all that once was good, and what could be again."
