FriarReb98: He and Boggs will always be tied together in my mind for being THE hitters of my youth.
BunkoSquad: I'll never forgive the Lords of Baseball for 1994 for so many reasons, but the two most egregious are (1) we never got to see how far that amazing Expos team could have gone, and (2) we got cheated out of Tony Gwynn chasing .400.
