Sam Crawford could have played in this day and age and still been a great player.

If your comments were not registering this afternoon, I'm afraid you'll have to recreate them from scratch.

EDIT: OK, it looks like Andy removed the comments manually -- although typically moderated comments would still appear in the WordPress dashboard, and that's not the case here, plus I did receive a server error message.

2nd EDIT: Andy actually approved the comments. Back to the server error theory then.

He hit 287 triples among his 2821 hits for a mark of 10.17%.The other guy is Buck Freeman with 10.24%.

"Nobody 'cried a river' and nobody was intentionally blocked from commenting. We had a server error that apparently lost 2 comments in the last several hours. I'll try to recover them in WordPress; I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused."

Neil can not handle someone with an opposing point of view and so takes the easiest route in dealing with them. I deal with that kind of personality everyday in the real world, and they are quite predictable. It's because Neil said there are dozens, meaning at least 24, ball players in AAA that are better than Juan Pierre. That is flat out, plain STUPID. Baseball is a business and if there were 24 guys capable of 2431 career hits they would be playing now. Neil was insulted and has requested I be banned.

Cobb, like most of us tend to mellow with age no doubt about it, but there seems to be no shortage of testimony that when he played he was a real SOB. Crawford and Cobb did have a real feud going for several years after retirement, it's kind of funny to hear the insults they gave each other. Most centered around the others fielding, those boys took their glove work serious.
@53 Mets Maven - great points on early hall voting. I had noticed that some of Crawford's and Cobb's contemporaries that did make it to the hall were a little light on offense.

MikeD -- I used to keep notes on the dumb things McCarver would say during a broadcast. Thank goodness I let go of that.

I heard just a snippet of him on a game a week or two back, and he said something so mind-boggling that it actually made me concerned for his mental faculties; though, again, I've (gladly) forgotten exactly what it was.
