O’s and Rangers will lock horns on Friday in a Wild Card showdown — with the winner advancing to the playoffs proper.
Pete Incaviglia suited up for both teams, but never played in a playoff game for Texas.
He did compete in the ALCS for the Birds in 1996, but that didn’t stop him from rocking a sweet tin his back pocket in this pic.
Fun fact, I own this card and actually wrote Griffey’s rookie year stats into the grid on the back. Great job!
Thanks to Griffey, this game exists.
Dave Parker is one of the most underrated baseball players of all-time.
You have to wonder if his drug abuse hindered his chances at making the Hall of Fame.
Despite that, “Cobra” remained a productive player late into his career.
With all of his accolades, Parker still never received more than 25% of the Hall of Fame vote. If you ever get a chance, compare his numbers to Kirby Puckett’s.
Harold Baines has more career hits than George Sisler and Ken Griffey, Jr.
Marinate on that for a minute.
Something about this photo of Big Mac’s face is unsettling.
His visage resembles a Goomba from the “Super Mario Bros.” movie.
And all this prior to his admitted steroid use.
Personally, this unattributed quote from his Wiki page slayed me.
He changed his clean-cut look and grew a mullet, a mustache, and a goatee to look more fearsome.
My theory is still that he grew all of that hair to hide his acne.
Why is Bobby Bo smiling in this picture?
Probably because the Mets are paying him roughly $1.2 million per year through 2036.
Steve “Bye Bye” Balboni closely resembles a mustachioed George Costanza (http://bit.ly/MvDERX).
I’m sure “The Lord of the Idiots” could relate to a slugger who struck out 856 times in 3,120 career at-bats.
On May 16, 1983, Darryl Strawberry hit the first of his 335 career home runs off of this man, Lee Tunnell, in the Mets’ 11-4 win over the Pirates at Three Rivers Stadium.
Just take a moment to let that sink in.
