      i didnt say anythign about drug use, but anti-social comments are funny in some aspects. if you say "******" or "coon" your in a law suit for years. back then they can do anything. there are alot more stories with anson its just that one was the shortest....

        You mean like when Cap said "Get that n***er off the field" and started 60 years of segregated baseball? Yeah, that was hilarious.

            I may be wrong, but I think the exact quote was "I don't care if he got no legs!"

            How bout Rickey. He's always been a character. He framed his first million dollar check on his wall. The problem was that it wasn't a copy, it was the actual check , lol.

              LOL!

              Rickey has always been one of my favorites......along with Reggie Jackson, Joe Morgan, Bob Gibson, and Jimmy Wynn.

                    Bo Belinsky

                    Some of the others that were mentioned were on the Angels at one time or another:

                    Jimmy Piersall
                    Alex Johnson
                    Bill "Spaceman" Lee

                    Didn't Albert Belle kill a bird during warm up one time?

                      Casey Stengel. He would lift his cap and birds would fly out. When Stengel heard the news during a rain delay that he was traded from the cellar dwelling Phillies to the Giants in 1920, he leapt off the trainers table, ran to the field and slid headfirst into every base.

                      Bluesteve, I think you are referring to Dave Winfield, not Belle, that killed a bird. It occured in 1983 between innings of a game in Toronto, when a Winfield toss struck a bird flying by. Winfield was actually charged by the police for killing the bird.

                        bluesteve- bill lee actually never played for the angels, just the red sox and expos. he is from southern california though. a very funny and hip player, one of my favorites who you either love or hate... a generally good indicator on whether someone is conservative or liberal is how they feel about the spaceman.

                        funniest lee moment. i grew up in boston during the era of busing. for a really long time we had an obnoxious, boorish city councilman named albert " dapper" o'neil- kind of an archie bunker type but even cruder. lee was on the news or something and expressed that he was in favor of busing, and o'neil fired off a very angry letter to lee. lee wrote a letter back saying something to the effect of " dear councillor o'neill, someone has stolen your stationary and wrote an angry letter to me with over a dozen spelling mistakes!"

                          Shame, too. Sounds like one of those Bottomley "there was no malice in any of my throws, just good, clean, strikes."
                          Johnson and now Goligoski gone.
                          I hope that's all.

                            Yeah I goofed about Bill Lee on the Angels.

                            I guess Albert Belle is more famous for another kind of bird during baseball games. The one fingered kind. :grouchy

                                Didn't Bill Caudill once pitch an inning with half a beard? That's not entirely normal.
