When stadiums close there is an often a ceremony where the greatest living (and retired) players take their positions one last time.
Who do you think should take the field at the Yankee game on Sunday?
One man’s list:
1B: Donnie Baseball has a game so call Tino. Sorry Pepitone.
2B: Please welcome back our old friend Willie Randolph
SS: Too bad Scooter didn’t make it. Bucky Dent.
LF: They ain’t gonna invite Winfield so it’s um……..
CF: Well unless Joe D or Mantke have a surprise..it’s Bernie
RF: Paulie O should be in the Hall but it will be Reggie
P: Whitey Ford. Check the nickname. Plus we can’t have everyone out there from 1977.
Feel encouraged to complain about this list and remind me of 98 year old guys I forgot.
When Stadium close they usually break out the greatest living retired players and have them stand in their old positions.
Who should be there at Shea?
C – Carter even though they will go with that guy from the Dodgers.
1B – If you don’t know the answer please visit another site
2B – um…..um….Alfonzo?
SS – Buddy I guess. It would be nice to see Buddy back.
3B – It would be nice to see Ray Knight even though he had a short stay. Hojo not awful.
LF – Please welcome back our old friend um……
CF – Lee Mazzilli! (Mookie?)
RF – Straw
P – The Former Franchise From The Winery

I am not hitting the panic button yet.
They will make the playoffs this time. Willie is gone. Jerry will get us there. Some idiots from the bullpen will break our hearts in games 1, 2 and 5 of the NLDS, but Jerry will get us there.
