    Is there a spot for Ed KRANEpool?

    Once the all-fowl team is assembled, I assume we'll try to hire Bob Nightengale as the team's beat reporter?

    Bought from St. Paul in 1926 Christensen immediately grabbed the fans attention with acrobatic somersaults in the outfield and the habit of hanging near the stands and talking to the fans, grabbing their hearts; this all the while fooling the Reds enough to have them trade Edd Roush and hand the CF job to Christensen… who failed horribly

    Code:
    YEAR  AVG   SLG  OBA   OPS
    1926  .350  .438  .426  .864
    1927  .254  .286  .330  .617

    Evidently, Jose Canseco wants on the all-fowl team:

    Re: The all-fowl team

    You guys got most of them. Sorry if I repeat.

    How about LaTroy Hawkins and Tim Layana Doug Bird for the bullpen

    Layne Nix in the OF

    Branch Rickey would add structure to the front office

    Cecil Cooper ? Ok, I think I need to stop, except...


    Somehow Nicole Eggert has to be on this team for eye candy too.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Re: The all-fowl team

    Perhaps it's just because I'm hungry but I feel the following deserve mention in this thread.

    Dusty Baker
    Ryan Cook
    Boileryard Clark
    Woody Fryman
    Cy Fried
    Frank Bastert

    Oh, and they should play in the rotisserie league.
