    That was one of my first thoughts when I heard about the trade. Actually, Wily Mo will hit many balls off the Monster that will be mere singles because they will rebound to the leftfielder so quickly.

    There are lots of little dents all over the Monster. Surely Wily Mo's will be distinguishable by their depth.

    I remember a game in the early seventies when Carl Yastrzemski played one of Dick Allen's laser beams off the wall and almost got him at first. Can you imagine how embarrassing that would be in this era of ESPN highlights? I really can't see Wily Mo joggin' one out a la Dick Allen.
