Forgotten Player of the Moment – ERIC HILLMAN

Eric Hillman (by Bill Barnwell) When the baseball-reference sponsorship scheme started, there was one item I felt I absolutely needed to get. For a year, yes, I was the sponsor of the 1993 New York Mets, the worst team (excluding those who were Huizenga’d) of the 90’s. A team so bad that it inspired mediocre New York beat writers to […]

Forgotten Player of the Moment – JIMMY KEY

JIMMY KEY (by BILL BARNWELL) Bill James once wrote about how just looking at the statlines of an unnamed player could lead you to formulate a vision of the player: what he looked like, how he played, what had happened to him in his career, the role he played on his team. Likewise, there are some names in sports that […]

Forgotten Player of the Moment – STEVE LARMER

STEVE LARMER (by Bill Barnwell) My first love of sport really came through hockey – I’m pretty sure, in 1991, I could recite the rosters for each team with relatively little difficulty.

QUINCY CARTER (by PHIL RIPPA) I had an epiphany (I was going to say a little epiphany but I realized that due to the nature of the word there really isn’t any half-assing it. We are in Do or Do Not territory). I have been hacking away at this site for, on and off, over 10 years. This means that […]

Forgotten Player of the Moment – MIKE PAGLIARULO

MIKE PAGLIARULO (by PHIL RIPPA) Ah, the blinders of youth. When I was in Middle School, we had a variety of projects that we endured – the rocket kit, the crappy car with CO2 cartridge, the make a bizarre object out of wood while keeping all limbs attached (It took me till I was basically a father of my own […]

Forgotten Player of the Moment – LIONEL MANUEL

LIONEL MANUEL By Phil Rippa Requested by Pieman I heart the New York Football Giants. I mean I love them like no other. Like they were my third born child. So writing about Lionel Manuel should be a breeze. Yeah… sure. I mean Lionel Manuel was good. Real good at times. But wasn’t LT. And he wasn’t a short, pudgy […]

Forgotten Players of the Moment – GARY REASONS

GARY REASONS (by Phil Rippa) As a member of the New York Giants Super Bowl winning teams, Gary Reasons will always have a soft spot in my heart. Another in the long line of ugly looking white guys who played for the New York football teams in the 80s (Joe Klecko, Dave Jennings, Marty Lyons, Jeff Hostetler, etc…) Reasons had […]
