Jeff of My Sports Obsession and I share a passion for trading. I try to get trades together every week. The weekly trip to the post office is part of my routine. I am sure that Jeff has a similar routine. Some trades don't come together after some emails are exchanged. Some trades are quite simple.
Spiegel: "White Sox for Dodgers?"
It is that simple when we get a trade going.
I love the blog world. Where else would I come in contact with a White Sox fan?
Zach Wheat is a Dodger legend. He holds team records such as hits and doubles. In 1923 and 1924 Wheat hit .375. That is beast! Back to back years of such a high average. If this dude played on the Dodgers right now, I would be wearing his jersey in the Left Field Pavilion at Dodger Stadium.
Even a typical 70s photo of dude holding a bat during spring training trying to look serious would have been better.
I also hope that in both instances the players were scoping out some hot chicks. Judging by the smile on Dust Baker's face, I am sure he has found a lovely honey. Tommy John's face says he has found the looks of mediocrity.
I need to start pointing out cool sideburns more often. I, myself, have cool sideburns. So, I should compliment others that are in the same club.
The sideburns gave you the power to pitch in 106 games in one season, Mike Marshall.
Thanks for the trade!
