In Wynn's last season, he was a teammate of rookie Tommy John. Between them, one can quickly connect players fifty years apart.

That link worked, but when I start from a player page and click the Oracle link, it tells me the player has to have played in the major leagues. The player I just tried it with was Warren Spahn!

(Every step goes through a Chicago team.) I don't like to see that one come up, so I always exclude it. When I excluded it this time, the route went to seven steps. So I'm guessing that the only way to do it in six steps is to include the 1980 Minoso stint with the White Sox.

Finally rooted around and found it under More [+] on the top Gray Bar line.

I cant very well deconstruct the linguistic semantics of a cultural reference Within a cultural reference @ baseball-reference. Should probably just stick to drooling over statistics.
