I love love love the idea that Albert Pujols (who may end up being on the top five offensive players who've ever played) is someone who YOU CAN JUST DECIDE TO BE LIKE on a whim. The only thing separating Adam Dunn and Pat Burrell from Pujols is this wee wickle stwikeout problem. If they could just choke up a little with two stwikes then PUJOLS away for both of 'em.

Considering I read about baseball for hours a day, I find it amazing how incredibly bad I am at baseball trivia.

four years pass...

I started watching a DVD of Game 6 a friend sent to me a while back. (If you're my age, Game 6 does not mean 2011 or 1986--it means 1975.) Question I would never have gotten right had someone posed it to me: Who led off for the Red Sox?

don't know, but I'm your age, and it means 1986 to me.

Dr Morbius, Sunday, 1 January 2012 19:19 (ten years ago) link

You're a Mets fan, so I'd expect that. Don't know where the majority of non-hometown fans our age would come down on that question. (I was rooting against the Red Sox in '75, for them in '86.)
