Make that San Diego Surf Dawgs.
yep, it's also mentioned on the topic titled "attention SD A's fans".
HE IS SO BAD ASS!!! Its not gonna happen but I'd love for him to hit homerun # 300 in Oakland...dream on...dream away....ahhhhhhhh.
Rickey just refuses to quit.
I once asked Sandy Alderson if the A's would bring Rickey back to retire with the A's. He told me that for that I would probably have to wait till Rickey turned 50. I'm beginning to believe he wasn't kidding.
Did anyone see the press conference?
Run, Rickey, Run!
If the A's continue to falter and there are too many empty seat at the Coli, we may once again see the Rickster in green and gold. Imagine what an Eric Byrnes could do with Rickey as his mentor.
bpf, that would be wonderful in so many ways!
Awesome graphic, Jerry.....
I have a similar graphic of Jeremy Giambi except he doesn't slide - EVER!
I don't think Rickey had been known to rub people the wrong way. That's a media creation.
Rickey wouldn't necessarily "rub" people the wrong way purposely but players have big egos and like any other work environment, not everyone likes each other or may be jealous and bitter of someone more successful than they are. Maybe Billy couldn't stand Rickey's third person sytle of talking about Rickey, who knows? There are people who hold grudges for years - some are on this board (including me) - and will never forgive BurgerBoy or his No-Slide brother.
Here is some opinions about from the rest of the country about Rickey as answer by Ryne Sandberg (those people ripped Ryno, too).
Nice article on Rickey in today's Chron. Only bad note is that I'm sorry to see the A's didn't treat Rickey with more respect.
