Default Jose Ramirez 40-40?

Not a Tribe fan by any means, but this is going to be fun to watch. He achieved the 30-30 yesterday with a steal, so he goes out tonight and steals two more. Heís at 37 HR and 32 SB on Sept. 10. Would only be the 5th 40-40 in history if he could pull it off (although Mantle said he could have done it every year if he knew it would be a big deal

He's one of most fun and unlikely superstars that I can remember emerging in a long time. If you showed me a picture of him out of uniform I'd probably take 50 guesses before I got to professional athlete. I hope he gets it.

Who are the other 4? Alfonso Soriano, Bonds, and I'm totally blanking on the other two. Matt Kemp missed it by one a few years back.

Mohoney's post above yours lists them.

I recall Vlad coming one HR shy and notching a double off the top of the wall in the final game of the season. I believe it was originally called a HR too. Some real Expos luck there.
