    Trivia question

    Easy enough to look up, I suppose, but:

    What two players who were drafted in 1987 are still active?

    I thought they mentioned Doug Brocail last night as 1987
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Good for Junior.

    How long do you suppose he plays? I would say he ought to play no more than one more year.

    I think this will be his last year honestly. I'd like to see him play for 2 more years and try to get 3000 hits. Right now he needs 244 more.

    I'll be honest with you, I don't think that sort of thing means that much to Junior anymore. I think he came to terms with a lot of the stat milestones being out of reach due to the injuries a long time ago. It would be nice to see though.

    Re: Trivia question

    I don't think Junior has ever played for the statistics. In answering the question he has always consistently said that he will play for as long as he is enjoying the game and someone wants him. He is certainly having a lot of fun playing for the Mariners at the moment. Will have to see where he and Mariners end up. I really think they will bring him back for one more year as if this was his last month I think the Mariners would make more of it.
