Jeez, those 450 homers could've been Cubs homers...
The funny thing is that, when they traded him, they basically said it was because he lacked power. (As I recall, he hit like eight homers his first year.)
The doubly funny thing is that the guy they basically went with instead was Mark Grace, who, although a good player, usually struggled to meet the bare minimum power-hitting requirements for a first baseman.
gonna build a giant drill and bore straight into hell releasing ancient demons from their sleep-forever spell so they can walk upon the earth and get recituated and run the diet pill pyramid that MC Pee Pants has created
Originally posted by JavaI don't know if it is true, but I read a rumor somewhere that one of the reasons they traded Palmeiro is that he was fooling around with Ryne Sandberg's wife..
It's pretty common knowledge that about 50% of the National League was fooling around with Ryno's then-wife. IIRC, didn't Ryno then divorce wife #2 after he cheated on her? Ironic, huh?
Anyone remember the joy of seeing him bash the Undertaker's motorcycle with his sledgemhammer and doing no damage and being all like, "Mjolnir will not break thine cycle? I say thee NAY!" and dumping it off the stage. - Enojado Viento says the funniest thing I've ever read on Wienerville.
Good on the Chairman for signing off on this, despite no apparent economic justification for boosting the payroll. But I think baseball's always been his passion, where all the success of the Bulls was second in Reinsdorf's heart.
