Man, this is baseball. You gotta stop thinking. Just have fun.
- Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez, in The Sandlot

I've been going to games since August 8, 1973....and on August 22, 2004, finally, a foul ball came my way. I had to reach for it, and it deflected off the tip of my right index finger. Shoot, if I was only 4 inches taller!

Have you read The Baseball Same Game?

Larkin is a no doubter. He was able to spent his entire 19 year career with one team. His RCAA is the 6th highest in history (maybe 7th depending on Nomar). All above him are in the HoF (and rightly so) or named Derek Jeter or Alex Rodriguez. His WARP3 score of 119.8 is very impressive. He did benefit from playing through the homer happy 1990's. He also raped the Reds on his last big contract with them. He played the loyalty card to get them to cough up a 3 year deal at $9M per year and then spent a third of the time on the DL and the rest being a average guy.
