Default Sporcle Saturday: Name the 28 Players with most Appearances for the Sox & Royals


This one was much harder than I thought it would be. I only scored 14/28. The relief pitchers killed me.

This one is gonna be tough. Not sure I should even bother. I can think of 4 guys off the top of my head and I'm sure I will come up with some others once I see it but I may be in single digits. Here goes nuthin'!

Well... I made it into double digits 12/28. There were four other guys I should have had of whom one is one that I always miss in these quizzes because I am more than happy to forget him. But the other guys I either didn't know they played for the Royals or can forgive myself for forgetting they played for the Sox. Have there really been 85 guys that have played for both? I'm surprised it is so many.

Surprisingly did ok on the entire righthand side of the quiz with all of the 2000-decade guys except for the two relief pitchers. Pissed that I couldn't remember the 84-85 reliever and the 96-98 catcher. Missed the top four guys and had no chance at them. Only other guy I missed was 78-80 outfielder.

That was tough, but one of the more interesting Sporcles.

Man! I screwed that up. There was some low hanging fruit out there that I missed. Bad Sox Fan!
It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. - A.
