    Is he some sort of personal idol of yours? I know that the Red Sox are your second favorite team, correct?

      I have a tape of him from ESPN Classic, but his face isn't as recognizable as others like Teddy, Babe, Gehrig, Willie, Hank or Stan the Man. In fact, I recognize Buckner's face more than Yaz'.

      Does Yaz get out in public? He doesn't even have a clear picture of himself on his own website.

          Ahh, the wagers thread. I'd get involved in there but I don't want to risk losing my avatar and have to wear one of some player or team I dislike.

            Our starters are in a groove and our bats are alive and well again, especially the middle of the order. Oh ya, really looking forward to it . . .
            Ken it was an honor losing to the Red Sox. We have maintained our lead in the West, and your boys move forward.

            • But a five-game losing streak for the M's. Ouch! You're losing ground fast you know, even though the A's are an injured team.

                I was in a real groove. First the M's sweep the Tigers and Racosun has to wear an M's av for a week. Than the M's take the Yankees down, and Mattingly had to wear a sigline and an M's av for a week. But the M's lost to the Red Sox. Actually, I might keep Yaz as my av after this.

                  Shaddup . Just kidding. The M's will bounce back.

                  • The M's are lucky to be in the position they're in. Even if something dreadful happens and they lose the division lead, they still have an exellent shot at the WC.

                      Lowe's still inconsistent, Suppan only had about 1 decent start, and your pen's been getting lit just like ours. In the end, we have Mo, you have Kim, and I'll put my bets on a healthy and rested Mo.

                      Make me an offer in the "wager" thread, since we play this weekend. You would look so great wearing a Yankee sig (like YM's) and the av I'm presently sporting. Hey, he used to pitch for you guys, didn't he? He even helped you win it all in NINETEEN EIGHTEEN!

                        How could it be an honor losing to the Red Sox? I hate losing any series, and since Pedro is up next, you guys seriously face the business end of the big broom!

                          Since his retirement he lives in Boca' He's an avid fisherman and golfer and loves his privacy. He comes to Fenway a couple of times a year. He'll do special assignments for the Sox when asked, like scout a prospect...

                          • I'm sure we could change that with a little photoshop editing. Black out a tooth or two and add a mustache and what not.

I think that somebody on this thread has a tape of that event, but I'm not sure who?
