This is the second pack of the contest designed to take your mind off of spring baseball and let you focus on important things. The first pack had three pitchers and three catchers and a total IP of 3750.67. Let's see if the second pack continues the taunting.
You may have heard of this guy. I looked him up on baseball-reference just to make sure he never pitched an inning. Nope. Has anyone ever heard of a catcher pitching an emergency inning?
Grudzy never flung the spheroid or donned the tools of ignorance.
No points for punters.
The manager binge continues from last pack, when we had four. I'm not even gonna ask what Topps was thinking by using this photo of him. Williams got all of 13 AB in the bigs as a SS and 2B.
1847.66 IP. And he'll be 30 this year. I don't mean to be telling stories out of school, but this could be a future HOFer.
1319.66 IP. The knuckleballer showed up in the last contest as well.
Managers on parade. Macha had 380 AB over six seasons with three teams, mostly as a 3B. He played 4 games as a catcher.
I like the card. I wonder if he just went yard? Young has been a SS and 2B, and emergency 3B. No C, no P.
Carlos Delgado - Sporting News All-Stars
Remember when he came up to the bigs in 93 (2G,1AB) / 94 (43G/130AB)? He actually caught in 1 game in each of those years, for a total of 5 innings. Can you imagine his bat as a catcher? Would he be Mike Piazza? Carlos needs 31 HR to reach 500.
That's three more pitchers and three more catchers, for a total of twelve after two packs. Total IP: 7965.67. Sidenote: we've had six pitchers, six catchers, and SIX MANAGERS.
Get your guesses in to me before TOMORROW'S pack is posted.
