Forgotten Player of the Moment – CORY SNYDER

CORY SNYDER (by ED AGNER) Eww, the mid-to-late-80’s. The mall hair. Ozzy was evil instead of doddering. Chuck D scared a nation instead of bored it. Jason Priestly had an acting career.

Forgotten Player of the Moment – DOUG JONES

DOUG JONES (by Ed Agner) I understand those who pooh-pooh baseball. Really, I do. Let’s face it, baseball fans on the net are the some of the most idiotic nerds in existence and well…baseball’s not the manliest of sports. But I’m OK with all that.

Forgotten Player of the Moment – NICK ESASKY

Nick Esasky (by Ed Agner) Nick Esasky must have broken a fair share of mirrors in his day. Oh, he wasn’t the unluckiest man who ever lived but good fortune sure didn’t smile on him. While I can think of more snake-bitten careers – like that of any pitcher who crossed paths with, say, Jeff Torborg – Esasky’s pathway through […]
