As a wee tyke, our three favorite baseball players were Rod Carew, Rickey Henderson and Kent Tekulve.
Two out of three in Cooperstown on the first ballot isn't bad, is it? Now we just have to get started on our Veteran's Committee lobbying campaign to get Tekulve appropriately enshrined.
And a thought on Jim Rice
Scary, schmary. Dwight Evans was a better player than Rice was anyhow.
