    We're getting close to a foot here in Menominee, MI (U.P.) starting to let up though. Overnight alot of trees went down and power went out.

    Yes, and he also knows for a fact he'll only be playing April to September too. I sort of feel bad for him though because from what I read, he really liked it here. Shouldn't be too different in KC though.

    When there was mention of Juan Pierre in a Brewers uniform I instantly thought, I'd rather have Chuckie Carr.

    When I went to his baseball reference page, I saw the quote, "That ain't Chuckie's game, Chuckie hacks on 2-0." Apparently that is what he told Phil Garner after popping out with a 2-0 count. At the time he was my favorite player and I was upset when he was released.

    That was before I had consistent internet or a Milwaukee newspaper so I never knew that was the cause (along with poor performance) that led to him being released. I love that quote though. We used to love watching him make the throw from center. He'd put his whole body into it and do a summersault as he let the ball go. Trust me, I have way too many memories from the those losing teams.

    There used to be a blog (now defunct) named after Chuckie Carr. They stopped posting in mid July 2009.

    He's useful simply because of his defensive versatility and occasional power when the hole in his bat isn't too busy to show up to the game.

    The Royals just can't catch a break! I mean Yuniesky Betancourt, Mike Jacobs, Jason Kendall... Now Ned Yost!

    Nah, I'm only kidding. He's in a good position now. He can't handle a pitching staff, but it seemed like he could work with young players well which is what the Royals need out of him.

    Ya, but since I'm a huge loser and can't wait the extra few weeks to get my Brewers fix, I listened to almost all of the spring training games on the radio last season.

    Good questions. I'll give some hints.

    I got the first right but it took forever to think of it. You need to think of an old guy who's been around forever but broke into the league with the Brewers.

    The second question I found much easier. Molitor only played with two teams and was gone from Milwaukee before Yount. So you know the active Brewer who played with him had to have been a member of the Twins during the mid 90s. To be honest, I might know more about the Twins in the 90s than the Brewers.

    The only active player to play with Robin Yount is Gary Sheffield.

    The only active Brewer to play with Paul Molitor is LaTroy Hawkins.
