BBTN is going to do a parallel...

Baseball tonight is going to do a parallel between this year's tribe and Major League's tribe in a few minutes. For anyone viewing the forum right now.

Wasn't what I thought it would be. Compared current major leaguers to fictional movie charactors.

Joe Maddon = Lou Brown
Willy Taveras = Willie Mays Hayes
Wily Mo Pena = Pedro Cerrano
Wes Helms = Roger Dorn
Paul LoDuca = Jake Taylor
Jamie Moyer = Ed Harris (LOL)
Daniel Cabrera = Rick Vaughn

Also did a segment on the best glasses (i.e. Rick Vaughn's glasses)
Chris Sabo
Kent Tukolve
Tom Henke
Reggie Jackson
Eric Gagne
Francisco Rodriguez
Harry Caray

I thought it was hilarious. I can definitely see Jamie Moyer throwin out the "KY Ball" or "Vasoline ball"... great stuff. They added some quotes from the movie too that just made me bust out in laughter.

Well, I already have tabbed Byrd as Eddie "Doc" Harris.

Hah, the reason they gave Daniel Cabrera as Rick Vaughn was his control problems. They showed him throwing all these pitches way out of the strike zone, and they had Harry Doyle saying "Juuuuuuuuuuuust a bit outside".

And I can't argue with Byrd for Ed Harris.
