In deep respect to the memory of Forrest Sibley -- have kept his family in my thoughts




ROGER CLEMENS
The Rocket -- 1st half of career (1984-96) w/Sox, 2nd half w/3 other teams --
his 4-year run in the final stage of his career, when he went 68-22 from 2001-04, is all-too ample proof of his greatness

The Rocket, seen here w/the All-Star game MVP in 1986 in his hometown of Houston, was not himself in his last 4 years here (40-39) -- his play especially in his last year in Boston, raised doubts -- doubts that were amplifed when he suddenly became the Rocket of old in Toronto

But what a career -- 192-111 w/Sox, 354-184 overall -- career 3.12 ERA -- 7-time Cy winner -- #3 all-time in Ks -- nearly 5,000 IPs, a number that will never be reached -- you rock Rocket

MO VAUGHN
The Hit Dog -- Sox 1990-98 -- then arrived in Anaheim w/Mo-like thunder -- a fall into the dugout on the first play of the 1st game of the 1999 season, sidelining him extensively

it says 220 lbs. on the back of this, his rookie card -- the imprint left in the dugout is still there however -- Mo had to have been 250 or so later in his career

1996 -- Played in all but 1 reg. season game -- 752 AB -- 44 HR, 143 RBI, .326 BA

1998 -- played in 154 games -- 40 HR, 115 RBI, BA over .300

BA went down in Anaheim, power #s stayed steady tho

the guy was mad player -- front & center of those winning teams -- Mo is BoSox All The Way

MIKE GREENWELL
The Gator -- last of the career-long Sox (1985-96) -- the Morgan's Magic year of 1988 -- .325, 22 HR, 119 RBI -- last solid year, '95, .297, 15/76 -- the Gator was solid
Rico P along w/Rice & Yaz here & Dustin Pedroia is next in line -- thought Nomah G mighta been back in the day

I saw Mo Vaughn in the minors, my first minor league game ever; in Tennessee. I was visiting my best childhood friend from Michigan. It was in Nashville in like '90 or '91. Pawtuckett were playing the Nashville Sounds. Vaughn hit one of the farthest home runs I have ever seen in my life. He was a great player for a fairly short spell. I remember having that ball card and thinking it might be worth something. Boy was I wrong!

Greenwell was another great hitter from that time frame whose career ended too soon. That guy could hit. He looked like a future HOFer when he came up, along with Boggs.

Looking back, kind of surprised Boston never made a lot of noise in those days.

Larry Gatlin scored a long touchdown in Houston's 100-6 beatdown of Tulsa.

They won the division a few times, but couldn't get past the Bash Brothers and Dave Stewart in Oakland.

Greenwell, who claims to have played clean, said back in 2005 that Canseco should give him the MVP from 1988 (Greenwell came in 2nd).

I didn't realize Canseco was using the drugs THAT long ago.

I find it interesting that he was the one that people in baseball blamed, yet he was the one that told the truth.

He told the truth, or at least his version of it, years later...in a book for $$$. He's gets more credit than those who still lie about it, but I can't give him that much credit.

I don't like the guy but he didn't lie to a grand jury. I will give him that.

but JASON VARITEK
Tek -- Sox 1997-2011
rock solid back there -- .296, 18HR 73RBI for 2004 WS team -- had better #s in 03 & 05 too -- Tek was the man -- what an oversight

He did. The Red Sox got Tek and Derek Lowe from Seattle in 1997 for Heathcliff Slocumb, in what turned out to be one of the most if not THE most lopsided Red Sox trades ever. However the Red Sox is the only team he played for in the majors (Lowe had 9 starts for Seattle before the trade, and of course moved on from the Sox after the 2004 season).
