DateQuestionAnswer
2011-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did you know that Reggie Jackson went to high school with the guy that led the Israeli commandos in the 1976 raid on Entebbe? I just learned that today.
(adambulldog from Spring Green)
Reggie Jackson's background is one of the most interesting things about him. I'll match you with another high school pairing: Casey Stengel went to high school with the actor William Powell, best remembered today for the Thin Man series with Myrna Loy. If you haven't seen, at the very least, the first one, check it out straight away. (Steven Goldman)
2011-02-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ken -- love PECOTA but I need a quick primer on how to use the player comparisons. If Joe Blow is compared to, say, Reggie Jackson that's good, right? But if the arrow next to Jackson's name is red and pointing down, that's bad, right? Would I rather have a red-arrow Jackson or a green-arrow Mike Cameron? A quick tutorial would be useful.
(PadresOnTop from San Diego)
I expect the data guys will be putting something like this out soon, but the short answer (as far as I understand it) is that having the green arrow is the more important thing for that year's projection. (Ken Funck)
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)In their prime, who would you rather have in your lineup, Jim Thome or Reggie Jackson?
(Cambridge from Cambridge)
Reggie Jackson by a whisker. He was just such a dynamic hitter and his October record sets for itself. (John Perrotto)
2010-01-19 15:30:00 (link to chat)You wrote eloquently in Forging Genius about Casey Stengel's indifferent play while with lower division teams (Philly and Boston, right?) before being 'liberated' by McGraw. Wouldn't indifferent play like that be crucified today? Can you think of contemporary examples other than Manny?
(BL from Bozeman)
Thanks for the shout-out on the book. The first player who comes to mind is Derek "Operation Shutdown" Bell and Chuckie Carr, who wouldn't bunt. And Reggie Jackson bunting on two strikes when he was told not do. I suspect that there are some undermotivated players out there but that their level of effort might be more visible to their manager, coaches, or teammates than it would be to us watching from the stands or on TV, and these things are dealt with behind the scenes, sometimes with a trade or a release. (Steven Goldman)
2009-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Holiday reading selections? Baseball and non-baseball divisions, please.
(BL from Bozeman)
Hrm. I just finished Count Harry Kessler Berlin diaries, a must for anyone who loves the Weimar period, and something I'll be buying for someone who can use it. I've been slogging my way through "What Hath God Wrought," on America between 1815 and 1848. I'm hoping Santa or a relative TBD brings me the new Bernie Gunther mystery, Holger Herwig's new account of the Battle of the Marne, the new book by Bob Gibson and Reggie Jackson, D'Antonio's "Forever Blue," and "Marcus Aurelius: A Life." I'm curious about people's takes on Bradley's book on the 1978 Red Sox vs. Yankees matchup, "The Greatest Game," because I've meant to pick that up for a while now. (Christina Kahrl)

2009-10-28 17:00:002009 WS Game OneWhen the Yankees struggled down the stretch in 1985, George Steinbrenner said that Reggie Jackson was Mr. October but Dave Winfield was Mr. May. Teixeira's free agent contract/offensively poor postseason might have prompted George to say the same thing, though with Teixeira's tendency towards slow starts, he's not Mr. May either. (Steven Goldman)
