Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 5-18-2018

Toledo News-Bee, May 18, 1918:

Customs officials caused the International League game, scheduled for [Toronto] on Friday, with Binghamton, to be postponed. They held up the Toronto players, refusing to allow them to enter Canada at Niagara Falls, because of dissatisfaction with the standing of some of the American players in the selective service. Players expect to secure necessary papers to allow them to pass today.

I blame Ban Johnson.

Elsewhere in the news 100 years ago, Cy Williams, who retired from baseball in the spring to become a farmer, “left his potatoes and corn yesterday” and went to Philadelphia to meet with Phillies brass. He’s expected to rejoin the team in a few days. (Spoiler alert: He does so.)

Post 91
Did I get my numbers wrong? There IS a teammate of Chipper Jones on the list still to name.


Sorry, I confused "Post #70: DING! Sam Rice" with saying that #70 on the list was Sam Rice.

Ed McKean is the only one I've absolutely never heard of. Need to read that "Rowdy Patsy Tebeau" book!
   110. SandyRiver Posted: May 18, 2018 at 01:09 PM (#5675127)
Looks like Dave Winfield has the most RBIs for anyone NOT on the list, with 1,833, 2 more than Manny Ramirez. However, Manny appears to have the top #2 team, CLE with 804, 6 more than Jimmy F in BOS.
   111. Karl from NY Posted: May 18, 2018 at 02:07 PM (#5675181)
What franchises are not on the list? Mets and the last three non-Colorado expansions (Miami, Tampa, Arizona), are there any others?
   112. Misirlou doesn't live in the restaurant Posted: May 18, 2018 at 02:18 PM (#5675197)
Well, the franchise which sparked the conversation, Washington/Montreal.
   113. Nasty Nate Posted: May 18, 2018 at 02:26 PM (#5675205)
In transaction news, the Dodgers are not short on Goeddels; they have acquired brothers Erik and Tyler Goeddel from other teams within a couple of days.
   114. Don August(us) Cesar Geronimo Berroa Posted: May 18, 2018 at 02:30 PM (#5675209)
Reds, Joey Votto? He's been there forever


[brennaman]Joey Votto is not clutch and he goes up to the plate looking to pad his ob%. Only 3 100 rbi seasons, are you kidding me?! [/brennaman}

Well, the franchise which sparked the conversation, Washington/Montreal.

And one more: the Mets.

Top guys for those teams:
NYM: D. Wright 970
DCN: Zimmerman 958
TBR: Longoria 892
ARI: L. Gonzalez 774
MIA: Stanton 672

   116. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: May 18, 2018 at 03:12 PM (#5675263)
In transaction news, the Dodgers are not short on Goeddels;
Is that pronounced like the German or the dwarf?
   117. Batman Posted: May 18, 2018 at 06:25 PM (#5675387)
German and the Dwarf is both my favorite 1970's cop show and my sixth-favorite genre of porn.
   118. eric Posted: May 18, 2018 at 06:34 PM (#5675391)
However, Manny appears to have the top #2 team, CLE with 804, 6 more than Jimmy F in BOS.


This seems like a good trivia question to make a mental note of, but darnit if I can't think of a concise way to ask it.
   119. RMc Has Bizarre Ideas to Fix Baseball Posted: May 18, 2018 at 07:43 PM (#5675409)
Which of the first 106 can you name?

Can I name them all "Bob"?
