Oakland has worst hecklers in the league

OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Oakland has worst hecklers in the league
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By bleacherdave on Friday, July 29, 2005 - 10:59 am:

Heard Michael Cuddyer getting interviewed on mlbradio.com. According to him, Oakland has the worst hecklers in the league because in "Boston and NY the fans know baseball, in Oakland they don't know baseball, they just yell stuff at you."

He'll be here soon........

Did Cuddyer interview all those all-knowledgeable fans in NY and Boston?
Cuddyer is just bitter because he never lived up to the hype and will never make the big bucks in the mlb.

If he thinks we're bad, just wait till he hears the hecklers in Rochester!

Hey, FH, have you ever BEEN to Rochester???

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By bleacherdave on Saturday, July 30, 2005 - 10:29 am:

Well, I certainly lived to our reputation yesterday. As you know, Dmitri Young has put on some poundage. I started chanting "Pizzzz-zzaaa" at him, he responded by yelling back and rubbing his belly. Of course, at that point the whole section joined in the chant. Hilarious.....

I can speak for the hecklers in Rochester as I was one until 93. And I can say that I (and those around me) gave it our gad-danged, chair-worthy best.

Haven't been back in a while, but everything seems a bit more mellow since the new ballpark was built.

"chair-worthy" - LOL, I love it!!!!!

That's about the best phrase I've heard in a while.

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By eyleenn on Saturday, July 30, 2005 - 07:41 pm:

Chairworthy is as good as "spongeworthy"!!

ssblip, I was born in Rochester and got my start in baseball with the Red Wings.

Speaking of heckling, did you know that Robert Szasz has written a book? Who is Robert Szasz you ask? He is the infamous Tampa Bay heckler who selects a visiting team player for each game as his target. He sits behind the plate and only heckles his target when he in the batter's box. He has an annoying but well heard voice. Of course, given the sparse crowds there, being heard is not a difficult feat.

The book is entitled The Happy Heckler. While I have not read it, someone who did related to me what was his worst response from a player. After taking a good dose of Robert's taunting and striking out, Bret Boone upon reaching the dugout turned to Robert and gave him the finger with both hands. Robert responded by chastizing him for making such a gesture in a family oriented environment.

I saw a feature on ESPN a couple of years back on this guy.

Some players consider it quite an honor to be the target of his heckles. It means you've made it.

Swisher was his victim when the A's went to TB the first week of the season.

I remember Durazo was in his sights last year and ended up hitting a couple of hrs I think. Good response by Fosse who was entertained by the whole scenerio that game.

I heard Swisher say that in Tampa they called him at 3am at the hotel to heckle him

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By leftfield139 on Sunday, July 31, 2005 - 11:39 am:

Swisher sure seems to be getting from everyone one. We must have superstar in our camp

Eyleenn: me too! My dad grew up on Norton Street a few blocks away, and my grandparents used to run some of the parking lots nearby during home games...they often gave out tickets to anyone who didn't already have theirs. Ah, the days of Silver Stadium.

So I'm curious: how did Rochester ever really fit into this conversation, anyway? It's not like the city's known or not known for its hecklers. I thought its film, copiers and sunglasses were a better-known export ;-)

ssblip, is it a small world or what???

This conversation started with finleyshero's reference to heckling Cuddyer when he ends up back at AAA Rochester.

My uncle worked in the VA hospital in Rochester in the 60s/70s and retired to Canandaigua by the Finger Lakes.

I must be confused I thought the name of the town was Crapchester :) Yeah, I know Jim Rome is an A-hole to live in Hell A and call someonelse's city crap.

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By jenmed on Sunday, July 31, 2005 - 08:02 pm:

Rochester figured into this conversation because the Rochester Red Wings are the AAA affiliate of the Twins, so I think our pal FH was commenting on Cuddyer's probable career trajectory. :)

Why is Mlb radio even interviewing Cuddyer. To see what goes through the mind of a true major league bust.

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By asch on Monday, August 01, 2005 - 07:04 am:

my first question is:

1. who would waste time heckling Cuddyer?
2. "worst heckler"?? What does that mean? Think about it...that's just a weird statement.

We had a ball riding Dmitri Young over the weekend. He has put on A LOT of weight, and seems pretty sensitive about it. We even had Nook Logan, the Tigers CF, laughing about it.

The best moment may have been when I told Nook to look out for Craig Monroe and keep him out of the belt dept. It was during a pitching change, so Craig was coming over to him. He started pointing at his belt and laughing at Craig, he said something to Craig and pointed up into the stands. When Craig looked up, we (OK, me) were waving our belts at him.....

For those who don't know, Craig was arrested in the off-season for shoplifting a belt from a dept. store.....

When Pudge was walking to the clubhouse Saturday, I asked him if he realized he just threw his Wizinator onto the field along with the rest of his equipment.

He didn't seem particualarly amused.

that's classic!

Here's a little list of what Cuddyer's been through thus far this year:

Enjoy.

That crack about the belt is pretty good. The comments are always that much more clever when you've done some investigative work...way to go!

Just a reminder, Stiffy Palmeiro will be back just in time for his visit to the Coliseum.

Better get your quips ready...

The Baltimore series will be great. We get to see Miggy and Byrnesey try to take a crack at us with their weak ass pitching staff. Meanwhile, we get to rip Palm-roid-o a new a-hole!!!!

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By eyleenn on Tuesday, August 02, 2005 - 02:27 pm:

Palm-roid-o!!! LOL!!!

Bleacher Dave- we made it up to Oakland and had the true pleasure of sitting out in 138 again. I laughed myself silly on Friday night when you started in on Dmitri with the chicken wings and pizza talk. You were in top form!

I had a ball with the Tiger OF, JG! But, you didn't even come by and say hi.....

I'll tell you what, Cuddyer SMOKED that HR ball last night.

Someone ought to have a poster saying, "Hey Rafael, that WASN'T niagra you took!"
Please, SOMEONE make a "Palm-roid-o "poster, that's perfect. Hope to see it when I go.

I forget where I read this in the last couple of days, but someone wrote (paraphrase): "Raffy, Viagra is a performance-enhancing drug!"

When does Cuddyer take his drug test? We gotta find some way to get that guy out of the lineup.
