DateQuestionAnswer
2017-03-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did you ever read Jim Palmer's book about him and Earl Weaver?
(MoBjonski from Nearby)
I haven't, but I should. I've always wanted to know more about the relationship between the two of them; they were stuck with each other forever. Weaver does show up in the book I am currently reading, Extra Innings by David Whitford (about the 1989 Senior League). It's interesting to read first. There's a passage after Weaver gets thrown out of a ballgame arguing with umps, doing the usual Weaver spectacle:

Paul Blair caught his eye. "Earl," he said, "You're in the wrong sport. You shoulda been a placekicker."
Blair laughed, and Weaver smiled wearily. Then the outer door opened and Bill Madlock poked his head in.
"Where's Earl?" Madlocked asked, grinning wildly. Then he saw him. "Earl, you're gonna have a heart attack in the f***ing Senior League!"
Weaver raised his head. "That ain't funny 'cause you're f***ing right." (Patrick Dubuque)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has anyone's HOF case ever been hurt more by the era they played in than Santo? His numbers translated to a normal era have to be pretty awesome.
(jamin67038 from Wichita, KS)
Jay Jaffe probably has ten answers for this question, but Santo has to be up there. Clay Davenport puts Santo at .275/.370/.505 in a standard offensive environment. Another guy who comes to mind, though I'm not saying he's a HOFer, is Graig Nettles. Nettles played in the 1970s, which hurt his numbers, though not as badly as Santo's were hurt, and although he was one of the best gloves ever at his position, played at the same time as Brooks Robinson and Mike Schmidt so that was less impressive than it could have been. There were more good 3B playing when Nettles did (the aforementioned, plus guys who could hit like Buddy Bell, Bill Madlock, George Brett) than there were at any time before in history.
