In which photos of the base-balling Reuschel brothers, Rick and Paul, are paired with befitting movie titles …
Mock one of my two or three favorite players of all time at your own peril, Mr. Perry. As a chubby young man growing up in Chicago, he was a hero of mine.
Chicago Cubs Career WAR Leaders, Pitchers
Rank Name Innings WAR
1 Fergie Jenkins 2673.5 53.5
2 Rick Reuschel 2290.1 46.8
3 Mordecai Brown 2328.9 45.7
Sir, I do not mock the Reuschels. I celebrate the Reuschels.
Apparently you were close enough to the point where you drive this man, a man called Darian, to look up Chicago Cubs Career WAR Leaders, Pitching That my friend is the brink.
I suspect I would rather enjoy celebrating WITH the Reuschels.
You will. You will…
I’m with Darian on this one- I’m not quite sure how this isn’t “Mocking” my Dad and Uncle, but um, if you say so. It’s great that you’ve got enough time on your hands to do stuff like this Dayan Perry- Kudos.
I concur. It is a mockery of very honorable men, something that today’s MLB is lacking. My dad and Uncle Rick are nothing but great guys who still help with charitable functions within the MLB. Get a life guys.
**Dayn not Dayan. I’ve always found it interesting that the sports writers are usually the guys who dreamed all their clildhood days of playing a professional sport but lacked any kind of talent, therefore, they chose to sit and ridicule and pick apart true natural born athletes. How writers are looked upon with a Godlike complex and able to judge true athlete’s is beyond me. 19 years in the major leagues and stats sure do speak for something.
Beth – I’m actually a fan of your Dad and uncle. Part of their appeal was that they looked like regular guys despite being high-level professional athletes. This is just playing off that. I don’t see any reason to get outraged or offended by it, but that’s your right.
I know when I like people I make fun of their appearance, also
