The Hazel Green Hit Hero

The end of the month brought with it another end -- the blogging career of Area 40 / JBF / Wes Moore.  From his send-off card cornucopia, he sent me one hit...it's a jersey card of my favorite baseball player.that I had never seen before.  Nice, strong photo.  Awesome die-cut jersey window.  Description of the jersey on the back.  I know it sounds like I am keeping my calm, but THIS IS KIND OF A BIG DEAL AND IT MAKES ME VERY HAPPY. 

Enough about the card - just a quick message to Wes on his way out.  My wife and I came up with a family "mission statement" a few years back about what we wanted our family to be like.  It was a bit aspirational, but one main characteristic we said we wanted was to be generous.  I say this is aspirational because my natural inclinations are to hold onto things, money, and comforts too tightly.  However, if I want to be truly generous, I have to work at it -- to relinquish those things without bitterness for the good of another person.  So to help me figure this generosity thing out better, I go looking for examples -- people doing it already so I can see what it looks like.  I can think of no better immediate example than looking at the card-blogging community and seeing what Wes has done for so many "random" others through his generosity, and I am in awe.  I have thought about this more times that you can imagine and it is flat-out inspiring to me.  So from one collector to another - thank you.  Not just for the cards, but for a model of something truly important.  That is what I will take from this.  Au revoir!

Baseball Sheep 2018 - Results and Winners!


The Sheep have come home to roost! 

I want to thank everyone for entering the contest this year -- I was hoping for 40 entries...and we got 74!  This is one where having more people makes the results better and the game more fun, so all of your entries (even up to the very last-minute!) are much appreciated.  We had good participation from members of the TCDB, so I appreciate you all coming over to find my blog.

I cleaned up all the results and grouped them based on what I considered to be "equivalent' results.  For example, on question #1, I lumped anyone who said Skydome/Jays/Toronto under the "Rogers Centre" bucket, but I did NOT combine "Astrodome" with "Minute Maid Park" since those are different stadiums.

On some of the questions, there was substantial agreement.  On others, you guys were all over the board.  Without further ado, here are the results:

1) What is the best Major League Baseball (MLB) stadium with a roof?






Minute Maid Park 22
Miller Park 16
Rogers Centre 10
Astrodome 8
Safeco Field 8
Tropicana Field 4
Chase Field 3
Atlanta 1
Marlins Park 1
Metrodome 1

Everybody hop on the train full of oranges for a ride down to Minute Maid Park!  I can confirm that this is a great place to see a game - I saw Ichiro and the Mariners play there in June 2002, and for those steamy Houston summers, a climate-controlled stadium is essential.  


2) Name an Alou.



Moises 42
Felipe 22
Matty 6
Jesus 4

Moises, the youngest of the bunch, takes the crown here from his father and uncles.  He finished his career with 332 home runs, but the first thing I always remember from his career is this (almost) catch.

Despite what one participant wanted to put, I'm afraid there was no "Boog Alou".

3) What is the best baseball card product with no MLB team logos?



Panini Donruss 20
Donruss Optic 13
Panini Diamond Kings 9
Panini Prizm 5
Panini Cooperstown 4
Panini National Treasures 4
Panini 3
Panini Hometown Heroes 3
Panini Chronicles 2
Panini Flawless 2
Panini Immaculate Collection 2
Don't Know 1
KMart 1
None 1
Post Cereal 1
Topps Chrome 1
Topps Gypsy Queen 1
Upper Deck Signature Stars 1

There are a LOT of Panini products on here - they're really the only MLB competitors to Topps these days.  Upper Deck has given up.  Leaf is practically non-existent.  Some people won't touch these cards at all, but I like them -- I think the constraints with team licensing make them have to be a little more creative.  Except on catcher cards...all the gear covers up the logos and you can use a regular shot.  Personally, my vote was Panini Immaculate -- these cards are BEAUTIFUL.  Get on ebay or COMC and find some good ones from your favorite team.  

4) What city without a MLB team most needs one?



Montreal 34
Portland 10
Las Vegas 9
Charlotte 4
Nashville 4
San Antonio 3
Buffalo 2
Indianapolis 2
Anchorage 1
Brooklyn 1
Des Moines 1
Memphis 1
New Orleans 1
Oklahoma City 1

Our french neighbors to the north are familiar with MLB.  The city itself is just shy of 2 million people, but the metro area is 4 million.  They'll need a stadium with a roof, though...maybe go talk to Minute Maid Park to see how it's done.  

Commissioner Rob Manfred has mentioned he wants expansion.  Montreal, Vancouver, Nashville, Portland, Charlotte, Las Vegas, and Mexico were all on his short list. 

5) Budget: How much money (in cash) should you take to a card show?



$100 38
$50 11
$200 8
$500 5
$150 3
$300 3
$20 2
$40 1
$60 1
$250 1
$1,000 1

Whoever is rolling in with $1,000...can I just follow you around for the day?  :-)

$100 feels about right.  Enough that you can get several nice things from a few different tables, but not so much that you regret going.  Or, you can get 1,000 cards from the dime-boxes - that's more my style.

6) What is the most unusual name for an active MLB player?



Mookie Betts 16
Rougned Odor 6
Jarrod Saltalamacchia 5
Yasiel Puig 3
Adeiny Hechavarria 2
Odubel Herrera 2
Xander Bogaerts 2
Buck Farmer 2
Rowdy Tellez 2
Coco Crisp 2
Yoenis Cespedes 2
Mike Trout 1
Scott Blewett 1
Dat Dude 1
Gift Ngoepe 1
Melky Cabrera 1
Gleyber Torres 1
Noah Syndergaard 1
Homer Bailey 1
Asdrubal Cabrera 1
Buster Posey 1
Didi Gregrious 1
Jedd Gyorko 1
Mike Foltynewicz 1
Jesse Winker 1
Albert Pujols 1
Yandy Diaz 1
Odrisamer Despaigne 1
Dallas Keuchel 1
Rhys Hoskins 1
Bartolo Colon 1
Didi Gregorius 1
Kevin Quackenbush 1
Touki Toussaint 1
Khris Davis 1
Kung Fu Panda 1
Adalberto Mondesi 1
JJ Putz 1
Yu Darvish 1
Joc Pederson 1
Justin Smoak 1

Not only does Mookie have a good name, he's also an excellent bowler.  

I had forgotten about Kevin Quackenbush, but that's a good one!

7) Who is the best MLB Mascot?



Phillie Phanatic 52
SD Chicken 4
Orbit 3
Mr. Met 3
Bernie Brewer 2
Stomper 2
Paws 2
Sluggerrr 1
Youppi 1
Ace 1
Fredbird 1
Mr. Redlegs 1
Slider 1

It's a runaway for the Phanatic! I hear he hangs out with Gritty

8) Who is the best bunter in MLB history?


Brett Butler
17
Rod Carew 13
Ichiro Suzuki 11
Ty Cobb 4
Lee Mazzilli 4
Rickey Henderson 3
Eddie Collins 3
Wee Willie Keeler 2
Maury Wills 2
Otis Nixon 1
Greg Maddux 1
Pete Rose 1
Jackie Robinson 1
Kenny Lofton 1
Jay Bell 1
Ozzie Smith 1
Mariano Duncan 1
Juan Pierre 1
Billy Hamilton 1
Steve Garvey 1
No Answer 1
None 1
Alvaro Espinoza 1
Lou Brock 1

Butler leads the majors in bunt hits (and Pinnacle once used him as the "blueprint" for bunting technique), but watching Ichiro lay down those drag bunts was a thing of beauty.

9) How many "hits" (autograph or relic cards) do you expect to receive in a hobby box of cards?

2 38
1 19
3 9
4 4
0 3
6 1

2 is pretty common these days.  You get 3 in Allen and Ginter.  6 would be more of the prospect-style products?

10) What is the best professional baseball team name that is no longer in use?




Montreal Expos 30
Houston Colt .45s 12
Seattle Pilots 10
Washington Senators 4
Cleveland Spiders 4
Boston Beaneaters 3
Cincinnati Redlegs 2
Brooklyn Gladiators 1
Chicago Whales 1
Black Sox 1
Sacramento Solons 1
Brooklyn Trolley-Dodgers 1
Sioux City Cornhuskers 1
Bullets 1
Jacksonville Suns 1
Kansas City Monarchs 1

These are so good!  "Chicago Whales" and "Cleveland Spiders" have to be my favorites.  Montreal makes its second appearance in these results.

11) What is the most-useful statistic or measurement to use for evaluating how good a baseball player is?




WAR 49
Batting Average 8
OPS 4
OBP 4
ERA 2
RBI 2
Watching Games 1
Salary 1
WHIP 1
Total Bases 1
Games Played 1

I see the sabermetric revolution has made it to the card-collecting world.

12) Name any baseball player with the initials "J.M." 



Joe Morgan 18
Juan Marichal 14
J.D. Martinez 10
Jack Morris 4
Joe Mauer 4
Johnny Mize 3
Jamie Moyer 3
John Mayberry 2
Jeff Montgomery 1
Jerry Mumphrey 1
Jose Mesa 1
Jason Michaels 1
Jhan Marinez 1
John McGraw 1
Jim Morrison 1
John Montefusco 1
Joe Magrane 1
Jose Martinez 1
Jack McDowell 1
JR Richards 1
James McCann 1
Justin Morneau 1
John Mabry 1
John Mackley 1

I thought Joe Mauer was going to run away with this, but over half of the submissions were in before he got his first vote.  J.D. Martinez never crossed my mind.

13) What is the best baseball movie ever?



Field of Dreams 36
Major League 12
The Natural 8
The Sandlot 7
Bull Durham 7
The Pride of the Yankees 1
Eight Men Out 1
Angels in the Outfield 1
A League of Their Own 1

Great list!  I am glad nobody tried to include "Rookie of the Year" or "Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch".  I am also a fan of "For the Love of the Game" even though it is far from a critic's darling.

Side note: Last year my 8-year-old son entered his school speech contest and recited the Terrance Mann speech from this scene of Field of Dreams.  People will come, Ray...

14) Most people consider Mariano Rivera to be the best relief pitcher ever. Who would you say is the SECOND-BEST reliever?



Trevor Hoffman 35
Dennis Eckersley 23
Rollie Fingers 5
Bruce Sutter 2
Billy Wagner 2
Goose Gossage 2
Eric Gagne 1
Greg Gagne 1
Craig Kimbrel 1
John Smoltz 1
Lee Smith 1

Hell's Bells!  Hoffman takes it.  Eck comes in close-second.  Surprised at the low rate for Bruce Sutter.  Goose Gossage was a good reliever.  Eric Gagne was a good reliever.  Greg Gagne was not a good reliever.  :-)

15) Who is the most over-rated current MLB player?



Bryce Harper 34
Aaron Judge 11
Yoenis Cespedes 4
Giancarlo Stanton 3
Yasiel Puig 3
Manny Machado 2
Robinson Cano 2
Jake Arrieta 2
Shohei Ohtani 2
Miguel Sano 1
Mookie Betts 1
Mike Trout 1
Ryan Braun 1
Chris Davis 1
Cody Bellinger 1
Chris Sale 1
Adam Jones 1
Albert Pujols 1
Kris Bryant 1
Josh Donaldson 1

Great answers!  I think you could definitely make a case for any of these guys.  Except Trout.  Trout is the best so how can he be over-rated?

16) What is the best food item to get at the ballpark?



Hot Dog 🌭 63
Nachos 5
Soft Pretzel 1
Bratwurst 1
Old Bay Fries 1
Chicago Dog 1
Beer 1
Dilly Dog 1

I went with the cheezy chips, and if you also picked something other than hot dog, this is really nacho day!

17) On an average day, how many minutes does a normal collector spend reading about sports cards (blogs/forums/social media/etc.)?



60 32
30 20
45 6
120 4
15 2
90 2
20 2
180 2
1 1
65 1
10 1
2 1

I specifically asked for the answer in minutes....but if you wrote "1 hour" I converted it to 60 minutes for you.  But if you just wrote "1" or "2", well, that's your answer.  :-)

18) Vin Scully has retired. :-( Who will take up his mantle as the best current MLB broadcaster?

Bob Uecker 13
Jon Miller 9
Joe Buck 8
Gary Cohen 6
Duane Kuiper 5
Dan Shulman 3
Joe Davis 2
Marty Brennaman 2
Buck Martinez 2
Matt Vasgersian 1
John Smoltz 1
Dan Dickerson 1
Don Orsillo 1
Len Kasper 1
Chip Carrey 1
Mike Shannon 1
Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow 1
Joe Morgan 1
None 1
Bob Walk 1
Paul Olden 1
Dan McLaughlin 1
Nobody can replace Scully 1
Michael Kay 1
Al Leiter 1
Charlie Stein 1
Bob Costas 1
Tim Kurkjian 1
Steve Stone 1
Gary Thorne 1
Tom Hamilton 1
Glen Kuiper 1
Jim Kaat 1

Just a bit outside...

But seriously, these are great recommendations and I am going to try to hear some of these guys call a game this year!  Shout-out to the Vasgersian fan -- nice choice!

19) For years there have been rumors about MLB contracting a team. If they would do that, which team should be eliminated?



Miami Marlins 33
Tampa Bay Rays 24
New York Yankees 4
San Diego Padres 2
Arizona Diamondbacks 2
Milwaukee Brewers 1
Baltimore Orioles 1
Pittsburgh Pirates 1
Texas Rangers 1
Seattle Mariners 1
Cleveland Indians 1
Minnesota Twins 1
None 1
New York Mets 1

Man, you guys really hate Florida and New York teams!  (You're not wrong)

3-Way Tie!  What a variety!  I didn't think there would be much agreement here...and there wasn't.  Many of you just put down a song title, so I tried to guess which artist you were thinking on these.  I also corrected a few that didn't use the right title (i.e., the "Put Me In Coach" answers became "Centerfield"). 

Now that you've seen all these, do you just want a convenient way to listen to them all day?  How about this playlist!  It has all 33 songs in it.  Which one will be your new favorite?

So that's all the questions!  Great job.  As per the rules, you score the number of points per question equal to the number of people who answered the same (including yourself).  If you had been a complete sheep and used the most-popular answer on every question you would have 629 points.  Anyone over 500 did very well.  Let's see how you all did...

CONGRATULATIONS to our winner, Diamond Jesters!  He only had one question (the over-rated player) where he did not agree with a large contingent of his fellow sheep. Make sure you check out his "Time-Travel Trading" series as he tries to convert a pack of current Topps cards into the oldest cards he can.

As I also mentioned, there would be one prize pack awarded to a random entrant.  Let's do that draw now....



halos17 is the winner!  I will contact both of  you about your prizes.

I would love to run this game again in the future.  Thanks to everyone who entered.  If you have any comments about how this ran, or if you have any good ideas for future questions, please post them in the comments below.
