I don't think manager Schoendienst was a big fan. It was said that Richie wasn't always the most prompt in arriving at the ball park and it's kind of hard to project the lineup if he isn't there.
That is the absolute $64,000 Question--for those who remember that fine television show.
I think it's better than 50-50, but that's just me. My glass is at least half full.
But we'll still have that confounded box on our television screens.
Even in a horrible season, he had 19 home runs. And his glove work still was well above average.
I think Reyes would be much more relaxed as a starter because that's what he almost always has been.
I haven't heard that concern expressed. They weren't concerned when the Rams came to town and these crowds would be about one-third of what the Rams drew on good days.

Nootbaar can be a fine fourth outfielder, I think, because he can play all three outfield positions
That is a hard call. I think Henry Aaron's swing was great and so was that of Willie Mays. And I wish I had seen Rogers Hornsby play. But Pujols' is the best I've seen up close and personal.
Just win, baby. That's the best job security.
It is a little unusual but I guess Smith wasn't here long enough for some voters and others might be turned off by the fact he wore a Cubs hat into the National Hall of Fame.
I haven't heard that from either side.
You don't get any public evaluations on officials in other sports either but the postseason generally shows you the officials who graded well with the league offices.
I recall hearing that line.
One particular awful game he had in Philadelphia when Joe Torre gave him a rare start.
I think many would cite Mays as the most complete player of the four because of his speed, defense and power. The other three were in a class of their own, too.
Well, not tennis or golf.
