...35 and 5 to start the season.
Tommie Brookens must be back...
Sparky loved that guy. I couldn't stand him (as a player)! Seemed like he struck out every time. Especially with runners on base.
Tommie as "Mr. Clutch"
Now...As the New First Base Coach / Outfield Coach for the TIGERS...
He looks old now.
He turns 58 during this baseball season. To me...he looks about 58..
There aren't that many people alive today (besides Woody) that are older than ME. Brookens is older than ME. He looks old!!
LOL, No. But isn't it funny when you haven't seen somebody in over 25 years and then it's like...WHOA...Then you look in the mirror and you are like... !!!
BDL, you know somthin.
Or been watchin too much P$F ?
How old are you Darth? I looked you up on Wikipedia, but you weren't listed. Nemo is 56........
Ok, Woody AND nemo are older than me.
I know nothing about baseball and don't really follow it anymore.
When I was a kid, I knew every player from every team. Now, I'll go to a couple of Rockies games whenever I get some comp tix tossed in my direction but I'm more or less there to soak up the atmosphere and have a couple beers.
The Tigers getting off to a 35-5 start might be what it takes to get me back into it. Actually, I have a son now (he's 2). He might be what I need to get back into baseball.
My kid was largely responsible for getting me back into pro football (OK, switching alliances had much to do with it too).
Yours truly is a young 56 also.......I remember Rocky Colovito and Jake Wood
You old stinky zephyrs make me feel like a
How bout these two...Bob Scheffing and Mayo Smith...
I once saw Rick Porcello and Austin Jackson....
25 and 20 would be a good start. Need Twins to suck outright, like 15 and 25.
I remember Billy Bruton and Hank Aguirre
For me it was the likes of Aurillio Rodriguez, Steve Kemp, Jason Thompson and Ron LeFlore.
I remember as a kid when my pop used to take me to games at Tiger Stadium and LeFlore would get on base. The entire park would come alive. EVERYBODY knew that dude was gonna steal and opposing teams were helpless to stop him.
He'd be standing on 1st and 3 or 4 pitches later, he'd be sliding into 3rd.
My first game in Tiger Stadium was in 1945. Yankees vs. Tigers. Newhouser vs DiMaggio and Keller. The smell of stale cigar smoke and freshley mown grass. It was heaven for a 10 year old!!
