  1. Probably couldn’t communication with the Front Office. One of the most instinctive players in baseball history. In reality the front office didn’t want to give instructions to a Hall of Famer.
  2. So the author states that Paul Molitor couldn’t communicate with the players. Not what I heard!
  3. Paul Molitor was probably one of the most instinctive players that I have witnessed in my lifetime. But he combined that with tremendous ability. Run, hit, throw.
  4. Very seldom have I created a topic but I would like to know what you think about the color announcers…..especially Morneau and Perkins. Watching the game tonight there is non- stop talking and evaluation. Not relaxing. It almost sounds like a seminar, or lecture. Most of us all played baseball, or understand the game and we don’t need never ending babble. The Producers need to work with these people on their craft. A requirement for these color guys: listen to tapes of Vince Scully…sometimes less is more.
  5. You don’t want him back in 2024(which is your opinion)but many of us do. I really like Gray…..fun to watch him work his craft.
  6. Basically, his ball, no matter the speed on the fastball, is too straight. Doesn’t move much or rise.
  7. Larnach has the potential to be a real good hitter…more than the above players.
  8. This game was blown by the manager. Baldelli is not a winner..his object is to follow a game plan and doesn’t deviate. Lacks a winning feel. When you have guys in the bullpen who throw 100mph…bring them in and win the game.
  9. Not high on Celestine from what I saw last year. Maybe a 4th outfielder at best.
  10. Personally, the player of the past that most closely resembles Mike Trout is Mickey Mantle. Over the years when a new phenom would appear on the scene the sport writers would usually say, “he might be the next Mickey Mantle”. The Mick was one of the fastest players in the league, hit the ball the farthest, and won the triple crown. However, I do think that Buxton is in that category and if he stays healthy he could. take over as the best center fielder in the game. And most experts rank Mays as the best center fielder of all-time……which I agree with.
  11. Todd Walker was a really good player. His problem was Tom Kelly. They didn’t get along…if I remember right.
  12. I think Roger Maris should be in the Hall for achieving a monumental record in baseball. The Babe held the record for 30 some years and Roger held the record longer than Ruth. That’s a remarkable achievement. And he was one best players in his era.
