OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Oakland has worst hecklers in the league
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."
Did Cuddyer interview all those all-knowledgeable fans in NY and Boston?
If he thinks we're bad, just wait till he hears the hecklers in Rochester!
Hey, FH, have you ever BEEN to Rochester???
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.....
Well I will make sure I do all the research I can I be well informed as I heckel the holy S?#$& Out Cuddyer. I will enjor this. I think I'll buy tickets by third bsas just for this game.
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.
"chair-worthy" - LOL, I love it!!!!!
Chairworthy is as good as "spongeworthy"!!
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.
I saw a feature on ESPN a couple of years back on this guy.
Swisher was his victim when the A's went to TB the first week of the season.
I heard Swisher say that in Tampa they called him at 3am at the hotel to heckle him
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.
ssblip, is it a small world or what???
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.
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.
my first question is:
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.
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.
Here's a little list of what Cuddyer's been through thus far this year:
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.
Hey Raffy..Wave Bye-Agra to your Hall of Fame membership!
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!!!!
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.
Thank you Hank Hill. "I'll tell ya what, Huston Street that boy is right since come from Texas."
Someone ought to have a poster saying, "Hey Rafael, that WASN'T niagra you took!"
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.
