I have a home white already but haven't worn it in a few years and probably can't for another 15 years (it's a Kendall jersey). I figure in 15 years it will be a throwback.


That is pretty funny. Does that I can wear my Joe Orsulak jersey now?


My favorite jersey is my official Majestic Athletic Craig Wilson black alternate jersey. I wear it all the time, no worries. My dad has an old Dave Parker jersey that he keeps hidden as he knows I've coveted it since I was about 8 years old. I only get to view it when he is in the room and armed. It'll be mine someday...........oh yes it will.

Wear them for what they once were, not what they became.

I have a Derek Bell Jersey but it refuses to leave the dresser drawer...
and I have a Raul Mondesi jersey but it left for Latin America for awhile to only go and show up in LA a few weeks later...

No, I'm kidding...but I still have an Al Martin Jersey, Home Whites

Wow. You have quite an "All-Star Team" of jereseys. Bell, Mondesi and Martin.

I wanted to get an Alejandro Pena Pirates Jersey

LOL, good one! I once found a Chico Lind jersey laying on the side of the road in the Domincan Republic, oddly enough a pair of pants were found just a few kilometers down the road as well!

Was the Lind jersey escorting the Braves into the World Series by muffing a potential double play grounder?

If you guys know where I can get a hold of a Johnny Ray jersey please let me know. He is the reason I'm a die-hard Pirates fan. I suppose I could get one custom made but I'd like an authentic.

I am interested to see if what we saw last year, happens again. There was a huge 2 run differance in pitchers ERA between those two, and much arguement over the value of handling pitchers and the like.

Throw Morris aside, and the Pirates pitchers this year have started horribly with the highest ERA in baseball, with Doumit doing most of the catching again.

It will interesting to see if we can make conclusions on this matter in the next few weeks or so.

It is my understanding that Cards' announcer Al Hrabowsky was making note during the game today attributing part of Snell's ineffectiveness to he and Paulino not being on the same page. With the caveat that I did not see the game, I read that Snell was continually shaking off Paulino and that Paulino was apparently visibly upset that Snell kept shaking off his signs.

Bu...bu... but I thought Paulino was a super game caller! How could this be?!? :roll:

I don't get your logic.
Paulino calls for certain pitches.
Snell shakes him off to throw other pitches.
Paulino visibly frustrated that Snell won't throw what he calls.
Snell gets rocked. Hard. Over and over again.
And you conclude by questioning Paulino?
Please explain your conclusion . . . .

Funny stuff. I know you're kidding but those would be great to have as a gag. There must be some out the somewhere, right? Or how about a George Hendrick Pirate jersey? They must have sold a few of those (prior to him actually playing of course). I bet they show up on the Goodwill racks occasionally. I'd also like to get my hands on one of those 19-0 Patriot t-shirts.

BM

PS: That's two Hendrick references in one day for me. Better switch to decaf.

Don't know if people are aware or not, but at Piratefest every year, there is a charity booth that sells game-used jerseys by some forgettable Pirates, some of whom I am pretty sure were never on the 25 man roster during the season (spring training shirts, maybe?)

Everyone from Bobby Hill and Jeff Reboulet, Tony Armas Jr. to Bruce Aven. I'm pretty sure AZ could even find a Mike Benjamin jersey if he wanted one. Britt Reames...they have it. Abe Nunez, check. How about Brian Meadows? Yup. I took pictures because I wasn't going to spend $90 on each of them.
