/sarcasm?

I mean, I loved watching Damon play for the Sox in 04 and all, but...a legend? Really?

Well to be honest, Johnny doesn't have an * after his name, I think its far better then having big papi or manny.

Hey, this could be OK if Godzilla gives a public screening of some choice examples of his enormous porn collection.

I hope Aaron Small is starting

Shouldn't it be "how good they were in Dickety Two Bees less one?"

This is actually Matsui's second old-timers game this year, after the Hall of Fame Classic.

Just for fun, the others from that game, which included one representative per team, none of which are actually Hall of Famers because those guys got to be managers/coaches:

American League: Brady Anderson (Orioles), Eddie Guardado (Mariners), David Eckstein (Angels), Adam Everett (Astros), Alex Gonzalez (Blue Jays), Scott Hatteberg (A's), Todd Jones (Tigers), Pedro Martinez (Red Sox), Hideki Matsui (Yankees), Carl Pavano (Twins), Ivan Rodriguez (Rangers), Aaron Rowand (White Sox), Mike Sweeney (Royals), Jim Thome (Indians), Dan Wheeler (Rays).

National League: Marlon Anderson (Phillies), Edgardo Alfonzo (Mets), Steve Avery (Braves), Vinny Castilla (Rockies), Brady Clark (Brewers), Jeff Conine (Marlins), Steve Garvey (Dodgers), Luis Gonzalez (Diamondbacks), Gary Thurman (Nationals), Todd Hollandsworth (Cubs), Mark Kotsay (Padres), Kerry Robinson (Cardinals), Kirk Rueter (Giants), Reggie Sanders (Reds), Jack Wilson (Pirates).
 
Managers: Phil Niekro, Ozzie Smith. Coaches: Roberto Alomar, Andre Dawson, Rollie Fingers, Eddie Murray

Johnny Damon can go blow Don Zimmer's corpse.

Steve is not the Padre!

Don't break your shoehorn.

Stay classy, Boston fan!

(I don't like Damon either but, really?)

I did this a few years ago and it was a blast. 19th century rules make the game very different.

As much as I love Damon and Matsui, especially for their hefty contributions in 2009, maybe there should be a rule that if the president who was in office when you retired is still in office, you're probably too young for Old Timers Day.

Damon will show up to literally anything if his name is going to be announced over the PA system.
 
2014-06-11 11:14:13 AM  
As god as my witness, I just assumed Damon was still banging around the league playing somewhere....

TheManofPA: Kaiser stole our word again?


You don't know the half of it, sonny.  Back when I was a no more than an O'Douls-swilling lil' Gator only as big as my pappy's tail, I remember when the Kaiser stole the Cruiserweight title.  That was a sad day, indeed.  Many young'uns cried in their rocksoups and wiped their smogans (since the Kaiser had stolen the word 'tears') with their belt-onions.

Now... where was I?  Oh yeah.  I pay so little attention to baseball I could have sworn Matsui and Damon were still playing somewhere.  Guess I was wrong.

For somebody calling himself the new Jesus, you sound kinda bitter.

But he craved a different kind of buzz.

Sorry.

Actually, on the press release he does.  (It's used to designate a first time appearance.)

Dickety? Highly dubious.
