Amusing indeed. Mike Lavalliere was a Spanky too. Might be better than anyone on the current roster, age notwithstanding. My favorite is "Kiki" Cuyler, a stuttering Cubs outfielder who must have pronounced his last name "CuyCuyCuyler." That was the 1930's. See what fun you miss in these politically correct days?
