Ruben Rivera: A Red in 2001; the year before he developed an interest in baseball memorabilia.


Xavier Nady (33): As I mentioned a few days ago, He went right from the draft to the bigs. Unlike Leake, though, he played only one game in the majors before being sent down.

Curt Schilling (45): Like him or dislike him as a person, he's 11-2 career in the postseason, and that's pretty impressive.

Willie Hernandez (57): I wonder what odds you could have gotten in Vegas before the 1984 season that Willie would be the league MVP.

Jimmy Piersall (82): An interesting guy. I haven't read Fear Strikes Out; does anybody have a book review?
