Ill end up summoning Vladdy with this, but thats back when people accused clinton of "wag the dog", suggesting that bin laden wasnt a real threat, and we only tried to kill him to distract everyone from lewinsky...

Think about how long ago that was.

Tim Salmon was somewhere around where trout is now, in terms of peak and youth.

I think Franky was the last guy of the 02 team to still play....hadnt even debuted yet.

Seriously. They had just started to line the inside of the towers with explosives when this picture was taken.

If Scioscia leaves to go manage the Phillies (if they fired their manager knowing Scioscia wants to go to them) would people be even more worried about Trout leaving ?

Scioscia is from PA, a town only 2.8 miles from Philly, he'd be managing his home team.

Gabe Kappler has them in 1st place in his first season as manager...they are not firing him for Scioscia even if he really wanted the job.

If he doesn't retire for good after this season, he'll likely take some time off.

Thats a relief. Unless of course Gabe Kappler gets struck by lightning or something lol.

The roids could keep them on the field.

Oh yeah the roids, completely forgot about it.

Was so obvious when guys like Eckstein were hitting Grand Slams in back to back games in 2002 or how AK hit 3 HRs in a ALCS game despite hitting only like 3 in the regular season, maybe AK started roids during the season & it didn't kick in until the ALCS.

Erstad's 2000 season was one hell of a spike in performance.

Fullmer was Roid Rage in that epic photo of him charging out of the dugout with scioscia trying to stop him.

Eckstein wasn’t on Roids lol, he was just a solid player who came up in the clutch

Fullmer, Glaus and Donnelly for sure were

Coincidentally, that was the same look on GA's face when he was stopped in the parking lot of the golf pro shop by one of our very own fan boys looking for an autograph.
