This is how I envisioned this thread:
Poster 1: Norris Hopper was traded for Corky Miller
Poster 2: Hmmmm.... Corky Miller what an obscure reference.
Never did I see 5 pages of analyzing the merits of a complete and utter depth trade happening.
I once called Corky Miller the worst baseball player I have ever seen.
"The guy I think could be really good in center is Adam Dunn. If someone asked me if Dunn could be a center fielder for the next 10 years, if he started working on it, no one could explain to me why he couldn’t do it." - Brad Kullman
I'm not sure I understand any kind of hand wringing over losing Norris Hopper.
I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.
I wasn't around when the board soured on Hopper, apparently. All I know is that he hit like .330 in 07 and then got buried.
Can someone enlighten me? I never remember Hopper being anything other than a better version of one Willy Taveras.
