Over at www.baseball-reference.com, perhaps the worlds greatest website, we have been sponsoring Scott Stahoviak, he of the unrealized 30+ home run potential. This sponsorship runs out at the end of the month.
I'm ready to move on. I want to sponsor someone, but I'm open to who, as long as it's a 10 buck guy.
Like Rich Becker. Or Les Straker (whose first and middle name is Les Paul and whose nickname was apparently Bolnalda). Or Dan Schatzeder. Or Pedro Munoz. Or Keith Atherton. Or Tom Nieto. Or Junior Ortiz.
Doesn't have to be a Twin. How about Razor Shines? Eric Fox (who is somehow only $5)? Al Pedrique? Tom Lawless? Tim Raines, Jr? Danny Heep? Garth Iorg?
Seriously, anybody who:
1. I've heard of
2. Makes me laugh
3. Is available
4. And is only $10 for the year
And I'm in. Current leader is Ron Hassey. Nearly 1,000 career hits! A career OPS+ of exactly 100. An OBP of over .400 in 1986. Career postseason average of .323. The only player in history to catch TWO perfect games. Plus, look at this sexy son of a bitch.
He looks like if Seth Rogen and Andy Samberg had a kid. Definitely the leader in the clubhouse.
Surprisingly enough, Chip Hale is already taken.
I am open to any and all suggestions.
