This won't put me over the 5K mark, but appreciate you all putting up with
me and my thread jacking, I can retire in peace, as Purple did. Not.

Better not. Who can I fight with? :) Wish Purp was around more.

Maybe Purp has combined his two great loves....

It reminds me of the sprinkler hide-a-key.

Almost dug one of those up once by mistake because it wouldn't come on with any of the zones....

Odd placement too.

:laugh:

I've seen them for sale, but never seen in a customers yard.

How ya like that. Mike hits 5k same day as Manny Ramirez hits his 500th home run.

just saw that only three players have a higher BA than Manny with 500 homeruns. Two are obvious T Williams and B Ruth. Anybody want a shot at the third. NO ESPN WATCHERS ALLOWED TO ANSWER>

Cant remember his name but I think he was a red sox player too.

Double X??

Double X??

Yeah, I'm thinking J.F.

As much as people bash Manny, he is an incredible offensive player. Consistent, hits for power. He just needs to quit the stop-and-stare of his HR shots. His defense has improved dramatically the last few years and he knows how to play the wall. Nothing like Yaz, but he's pretty decent.

I still think of XX as a Philadelphia Athletic. If you remove his 'cup-of-coffee' teen years and the time after WWII began, you have some scary numbers there.

Ditto but the guy who really lost numbers to the war years was Ted Williams. He in my book is the greatest hitter ever. A funny story that gets told around here is that when he coached the Rangers he was trying to teach hitting to a bunch of .250 guys at best. Was telling them that early in the game they should try to hit the middle third of the ball and late in the game should swing for the bottom third of the ball. You can imagine the silence. I watched him swing on my DVR once and did a frame by frame slow down to see where the ball was when he actually started his swing. The ball had gone 2/3 of the way to the plate before he started his swing. You'd never get a changeup by that guy.

Wish I was old enough to have seen Teddy Ballgame play.

You could figure Williams to have hit 700 homers, adding the four-plus years he was in the service. At any rate, he'd have set a mark for walks that even Baroid Bonds could only hope to get close to.

And do well, I might add. I think sprinkler geeks have not only type "A"
personalities, but the shortest attention spans of any trade.

I don't know about the type A personalities, and I certainly can apply myself to a task and give it my undivided atten......

I've always looked down: found a 4K diamond ring when on my Schwinn
