Yes, Tony Conigliaro had a sideline as a pop singer, recording a number of 45s, mostly on local labels (and the one on RCA you linked to). There's also a Youtube of him singing "I Aint Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore" (Young Rascals) on the Merv Griffin show.

If Andy ever posts a "What if..." of that nature I'd be sure to make a well-detailed case in support. Or perhaps I'll finally fix my blog and post it there.

I haven't read all the comments yet as I wanted to respond to 3, so excuse me if someone has already mentioned this, but I either immediately forgot the criteria when looking at the table because the first thing I thought was "Where's Branyan?" He leads for players not currently under contract with 189 HRs in 991 games, but he's doubtful to go unsigned and not play 9 more games.

I'm waiting on Andy to craft a "What if..." for Bo Jackson:

"What if Bo Jackson, after declining to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, never played in the NFL?"

Henry Rodriguez was dubbed "Oh Henry" big the Expos fans. He sure could hit the long ball.

Other notable Expos:

- Brad Wilkerson, I saw him weeping after the last game in Expos history....

- Brad Fullmer, with a Grand Slam in his 1st AB...

After his MLB career was over, he played another decade in AAA. He was one of the best sluggers in the league every year through age 46, when he was the oldest hitter in the International League by 8 years.
