    Slick fielding keystone cop who brought stability to the Twins middle infield, .296/.358 (BA/OBP) with 25 steals in 2006. .304/.356 in 85 games in the 2007 campaign before being traded to the Mets for a career minor leaguer named Dustin Martin, and a guy named Drew Butera. He played three more seasons with the Mets.

    Howard Fox indeed, and the unknown ear belongs to The father of Drew. There is a video of that some place... I guess it is here now too

    April 27th, 1994, leftfielder Alex Cole and shortstop Pat Meares nearly collide on a pop-up. Cole makes the catch for the final out, sealing a no-hitter for Twins starter Scott Erickson.

    4 times officially (without the boss changing his mind later in the season or off-season.) Many more unofficially...

    Pressed the like button the second I recognized the Sara McLilithFest soundtrack. The Red Wings mugshot is priceless; he looks like he's been demoted to lunch special sandwich board guy in front of a greasy spoon.

    Enough for them to joke about it in Lite beer commercials. After this one was made, George re-hired him, so they dubbed "hired" over the "fired" and left the rest as it was.

    Here is the updated version:

    They went back to the original after he was fired again.
