Big Bad Scrapple Since: 4.1.02 From: Dorchester, Ontario Since last post: 5 days Last activity: 1 hour # 1 Posted on 24.11.03 2207.43 | Instant Rating: 5.54 One of the great pitchers of all time passed away at age 82. We'll know he's made it to heaven if after tomorrow we get two days of rain. Let's put this in the plainest terms possible: Darryl Strawberry has no business instructing anybody about anything. He has never done a thing in his life to warrant a position of guidance. Not on the field. Not off the field.-- David Vescey, si.com Promote this thread!

He will be missed. Glad to see people still remember him and the 1957 world champion Milwaukee Braves. RIP, Warren. Say hi to Harvey Kuehn when you get there. Star wipe, and...we're out.

He was also the main cog in the great threesome of himself, Burdette and Buhl that led the tremendous Milwaukee teams of the late 50's. What a team that was! Adcock, Shoendienst, Logan and Mathews first to third, Aaron, Covington and Bruton in the outfield (with help from Pafko) and Del Crandall at catcher. "In the sky. Lord, in the sky..."

Thomas Boswell of the Washington Post has a nice column up about Spahn in which he refers to him as the unknown immortal. The link follows. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/ A14527-2003Nov25.html
He had two Orioles in a bearhug, and I think he got a few shots in. Hey, he's listed at 6'1" and a conservative 265, I think Cloninger can handle himself.
