Apropos of Nothing: Barry and Ty

In all humility, we point you toward the always interesting Baseball Analysts site, and a short piece on two players you might not ordinarily associate.

  • Very interesting, and very well written. So well written, in fact, that I think there must be a mistake. It says that Mark Lamster clown wrote it. That can’t be right… :-)

  • Good read – it’s an interesting comparison to make. I wonder if Cobb’s fan base extended past his home team or if he was reviled by the majority of the fans the way Bonds seems to be outside of San Francisco.

  • I wonder if Cobb tried to spike Ruth as he is so famous for doing to other players, maybe cut short that threatening career…

  • Ruth played the outfield, so spiking wasn’t an option. But he did try physical assault. The two brawled on at least one occassion, and at Cobb’s provocation.

  • And the classic line from Cobb’s biographer–when he asked to say ONE decent thing about Ruth:
    “Runs well for a fat man.”

  • I mean, really, who cares if Bonds and Cobb don’t get along? Those baseball writers have nothing better to do with their time than antagonize? Zzzzzzz.
