Even as a Met fan, he was still one of the great voices of my childhood during the 1970s.

Jeez, John, you know some of us saw him PLAY! Make us feel old, wouldja?

Hey, how about a Roy Face thread, might lead to some interesting comments about relievers. And since relievers almost by definition are going to be seen as peak/prime types, Face had a pretty famous year. Was it that good or was he just that lucky.

I haven't tabulated yet whether 139 WS and 59 WARP is going to amount to much.

Better you than me, buddy! :-D

He was the only guy under 200 WS (my cutoff) that I thought about making up a thread for anyway. Glad you requested it, Marc.

Ah, those childhood days of listening to Scooter, White, and Messer. I still love listening to ballgames on the radio because of them (though Waldling do their best to erode that just about every day)...

I also grew up with Rizzuto, White and Messer, great stuff.

As a player, kind of the Wally Joyner of the 1960s, though his career was shorter.

Wow, Wally Joyner made almost 40 million dollars playing baseball. Holy Crap. I would have never guessed he made 1/2 that.

And Joyner had the honor of being the target of rubber-knife-throwing Yankee fans.

A good bunch those 1980s NY rooters.

Hey, that was kinder and gentler, buddy—the knives we threw in the '70s weren't rubber! ;)
