What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
sandwisch, I'm going to have to get that book. Thats probably awesome.
Oh it is. Buy it and masturbate to it you idiot.
Sandwisch, I must concur. As much as I hate to give up on anyone and see them as a waste of a human life, to respond to a post by JD or any of his comments, in his own words, is an idiot, and that goes especially for myself. I openly asked him about his personal baseball playing background, and got nothing in response. In his own Topic "Mavericks vs Rangers where he does nothing but offer sarcastic criticism, I specifically asked him what was his solution for the Rangers. Response: again, nothing. So if you catch me responding to one of his post, feel free to call me an idiot. A 100% boycott may be the only workable solution.
Leah of Arlington:go vaccuum something.
Sandwisch, did you say that book can be ordered on Amazon?
Last I checked, it's there. JD probably beat you to the last copies. You'll have to wait for the re-stock.
you are an idiot.
I would assume it is an interesting book. Anywhere you can find a book review of it?
Get your mom to read it to ya.
An absolutely true legend.
Here's a review of "Fouled Away" posted at Amazon:
"...Clifton Blue Parker has done an excellent and very thorough and complete research of a rather difficult subject, and pulled off a solid read from start to finish. Clifton Parker is correct in one of his assessments late in this book...People are forgetting Hack Wilson. Here today and gone tomorrow aptly applies to the career and life of Hack Wilson. That is sad indeed. Hack Wilson was a character of the game both on and off the field. What Mr. Parker has done is preserve a life, career and very important lesson in life in his book.Clifton Parker puts Wilson's 191 RBI's into perspective and does not candy coat it. He backs it up with reasonable assumptions and hard facts. A tragic figure is Wilson, and Mr. Parker portrays him accordingly. Interesting how some of today's so-called athletes and heros are really no different than Wilson...
...a must read for anyone that loves baseball history. This is as good a read as you will find. An interesting subject and an equally interesting read."
To give even more meaning to the 191. Hack also had 56 homers, so he was not just a line drive singles machine; and the most meaningful stat, he also did that 191 on 208 hits or a rbi / hit ratio of 0.918 [ A near unbelievable rbi per hit]. Yet, some season his record will be surpassed..
But Leah do u luv him? Silly ass post.
will they have a movie over Hack Wilson?
If they did all of you idiots could masturbate to it.
an interesting history of a special baseball player is not something as bad as this JD kid seems to act like it is.
Its just idiotic and you know it
Talking about a legend from the roaring 20s is not idiotic.. Your wrong
I've already put my order through on that book. Thanks sandswich.
A hundred and ninety-one. Mention the number anywhere near a ballpark and before you can ask who or what, fans will almost certainly shape their lips with a single word: Wilson. They ll tell you Hack Wilson, a burly, bull-necked outfielder who roamed Wrigley Field in the 1920s and 1930s, was the man who drove in 191 runs in 1930 more than most players had hits. A few of them will know that in 1929, Wilson racked up 159 RBI and hit 39 home runs. Still fewer might be able to tell you that for the four seasons 1927 1930, the slugger hit no fewer than 30 home runs a season and drove home no fewer than 120. But you are unlikely to find more than a handful of fans who know how the Cub great's career came to an end. Or when. Or why. The heir apparent to Ruth s title of world-beater, Wilson was a star by his late 20s and a record setter by 30. But he was also an alcoholic who was as practiced at swinging his fists as he was his bat. By his early 30s his days as a full-time player were behind him, and by 48 he was dead; his son refused to claim the body. This biography examines the turbulent life and career of one of the most dominant short-stint powerhitters ever to pull on a uniform. From Wilson s early career as a steelworker, through his time as the beloved ballplayer and icon for the City of Big Shoulders to his days as a down-on-his-luck baseball washout and itinerant laborer, an unflinching look at this Hall of Famer is provided.
Mention this and people could care less. It is a tribute to your stupidity that this post even gets responded to.
The book could maybe help you get more educated JD
ur a fucking idiot
