    Rich Amaral

    Dude was a consummate professional, a great person (I don't know of anyone who was more friendly with the fans before games and during games when he wasn't starting)

    Joey Cora

    Teared up when the Mariners lost the 1995 ALCS...one of the great moments in Mariner history...to see someone who cared that much.

    Jamie Moyer

    Just keeps throwing slower and slower and slower and slower and...

    and yet keeps winning.

      I just started cracking up when I saw this - but it is SO true. I've been happy to see anything in the low 80's with him, but he was 10-0 at Safeco last year, and he did have a FABULOUS start

        some favorites who will never be forgotten by me

        Mickey Rivers, NYA
        Felix Millan, NYN
        Dave Kingman, NYN
        Bruce Boisclair, NYN
        Eddie Kranepool, NYN

        I don't know why so many mets. Guess a lot of my friends were Mets fans and I remember going to games at Shea. Felix Millan was great.

          I'm waiting for the first game where Moyer never touches 80 and where his change-ups come in in the 40s...LOL

              As someone whose first years were as a Twin's fan during their two title seasons in '87 and '91 before switching to the Sox in '92, but still keeps the Twin's as a favorite, mine are basically two teams.

              White Sox
              Joey Cora
              Steve Sax
              Lance Johnson
              Black Jack McDowell
              Ron Karkovice
              Estaban Beltre
              HOF possible (or in)
              Robin Ventura
              Harold Baines
              Frank Thomas
              Tim Raines
              Carlton Fisk

              Twins
              Kent Hrbek
              Greg Gagne
              Shane Mack
              Scott Erickson
              John Smiley
              Tom Brunansky
              HOF Possible (or in)
              Kirby Puckett
              Jack Morris

              I also like Scott Brosius and Walt Weiss. George Brett, Paul Molitor, Dave Winfield, and Ryne Sandberg were some HOFers I liked along with Brian MacRae, Kevin McReynolds, Eric Davis, and Wally Joyner. I always liked Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders.
              Johnson and now Goligoski gone.
              I hope that's all.

                  Doug Rader
                  Cheo
                  Enos "check your baggage" Cabell- it has now been 30 years since he was first with the Stros, and still no player in the majors has come close to shooting as much personal pool as he has- you gotta respect a guy who plays 150 games a season in front of 10,000 people and has the "balls" to do that.

                  As for the non-Astros we tried to beat once in a while back in the 70's:

                  Marichal
                  Koosman
                  Rennie Stennett (member him?)
                  the Mad Hungarian
                  Hank Aaron (who didn't love him?)
                  Dusty Baker
                  Randy Jones
                  Dan Driessen

                  My Mom loved Tony Oliva and Carl Yastrzemski (other than Cheo), but they were American Leaguers and way too far away to see live, so they didn't do it for me.

                    I'm definately showing my youth...here are my favourite non-HOF players from when I was younger-

                    Cecil Cooper
                    Ron Gant
                    Sid Bream
                    Dave Stewart (ok, so nearly everyone on A's from the "Bash Brothers" era were cool, but Dave and the Rickey were my favourites)
                    John Kruk
                    Cecil Fielder
                    Andy Van Slyke

                        This is reaching back a ways.

                        Roy McMillan - good fielding SS for the Reds

                        Wally Post - Also of the Reds. Boy, did he have power

                        Big Klu - That man would be big today and he could also hit for average.

                        Others are Johnny Temple, Johnny Wyrostek (SP) and Ken Raffensberger.

                        Can you tell I'm a Reds fan?

                            Favorties who won't make the Hall

                            Well, I didn't see all of them play, but reading and hearing about them put them in a special place to me:

                            (No Particular Order)

                            1.Jay Buhner
                            2.Dan Wilson
                            3.Carl Furillo
                            4.Preacher Roe
                            5.Mort Cooper
                            6.Ken Boyer.
                            7.The McDaniel Brothers. (Lindy and Von)
                            8.Roger Maris

                            There's no such thing as an ultimate stat.

                              Somehow I guessed you were a Reds fan before I read that last line!

                              I remember one year the fans voted mostly Reds players on the NL All-Star team. I think the ASG was in Cincinnatti that year, and therefore a heavy vote from that area.

                              But I always wondered: you can see these Reds players at any home game. Just for a change, wouldn't most Reds fans like to see some other NL stars play against the AL's best?

                                In April of 1980, I met Richie Hebner at a car dealership when I was nine years old. My father was from Pittsburgh and I was raised a Pirates fan in Detroit. He told me about Clemente, Stargell and the rest and the first season I was a "real" fan the Bucs won the World Series.

                                So, here's this 9 year old asking all these questions about Clemente and the Pirates, and God love him, Hebner answers every one, signs an autograph and takes a picture with me.

                                In May, I go to a Tiger game and go down to the Tigers dugout to hang out before the game. Here comes Hebner warming up in front of the dugout. He comes over and signs a few autographs and spots me. He welcomes me BY NAME and gives me the ball he was warming up with! Blew me away and made me a baseball (and Hebner) fan for life.
