I've long proposed they abolish umpire shirt pockets forever.

I remember that. They said that the odds of that happening were 20,000,000 to 1. And by "they" I mean nobody. I made that up. Look how slim Thomas was. That was 1998. Joey Belle in the on deck circle.

In other news Durham was really, really fast when he was young. Proof positive that speed is only maybe half of base stealing. Give him Pods' jumps and he'd have been Tim Raines.

Durham's stats that year: .285 19 67 .363 .455 with 36 steals. Pretty good leadoff man. He had cement hands though.

I believe Albert was his middle name.

You know he wont sign them baseball cards that read Joey Belle. I met him a long time ago when he was with the Sox and he wouldn't sign it. I thought he was joking, but he was serious.

No doubt he was an *******, but that 2nd half in 1997 or 1998 was probably the best second half I have ever seen by a player. He got a hit every time it seemed like. And I dont think he took special vitamins, either. I just think he was supremely talented who was an *******.

Yeah, it was 98 where he went a tear, ended up with 49 homers and 152 RBI. Both club records I believe. He had a few second halves like that in his career.

That was Manuel's first year and they finished 80-82. And that team was pretty bad.

I believe he changed his name to Albert when he got off the sauce.

I saw that not too long ago, I think Ray was sent back to 3rd

I'm pretty sure the run counted and didn't have to go back to 3rd.

Great post. Great commentary!

Joey Belle....ahh, those were the days. What a jag.

Was it 97 or 98 with Thomas, Belle, and Ventura walking down the street with shades to the song "Swing batta batta batta batta swiiing."

Man...thinking back...how awful and lame was that?

That was in '98. I have a poster from that ad campaign hanging in my room.

That is pretty funny and at the same time that something that would probably never happen again in a million years........

I was living in Houston at the time and got to see that series. Belle hit an absolute monster of a homer-one of the 3 or 4 longest ever at the Dome-during one of the three games.
