DateQuestionAnswer
2017-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Spent last night going through my baseball card collection for the first time in at least fifteen years. My collecting window was narrow: at its very broadest, perhaps 1988-96. Some players, of course, appear with greater frequency across card packs than others. Any idea why, for the Pittsburgh Pirates, that player at that time seems to have been Denny Neagle?
(Alec Denton from Atlanta)
Hey everybody, my apologies--I got several of these questions in advance, as you know, and I wrote out my answers in advance. I've been informed that you're seeing a bunch of unprintable characters. Sorry! I will type out my responses. which will be slower. Anyway, Alec, the reason is that the people at Topps and Upper Deck and whatnot have the ability to not only troll you, by putting mostly mediocrities and scrubs in the card packs, but they are also sufficiently prescient to know which players are going to turn out to be jerks, so you'll wince every time you see their cards. In fairness, Neagle was pretty good in his Pirates years, once the put him the rotation: DRA- of 81, 70, and 81 in 1994-6. But that was the beginning of the team's long sojourn into the sub-.500 universe, so nobody wanted Pirates. (Rob Mains)
