Maz giving tips, not cheering for Bonds

Bill Mazeroski was on hand at Pirate City to give Freddy Sanchez some tips on handling the ball. Who better than Maz who was a fair to middlin’ secondbaseman in his day?

“When you watch film of Maz, you can’t see the transfer,” Sanchez said. “It’s like … nothing.”

“Freddy can be a fine second baseman,” Mazeroski said.

While some (including Commissioner Bud Selig) are side-stepping the Barry Bonds/homerun record issue, Maz was unabashed about the whole thing.

“I hope it doesn’t happen,” he said. “It’s just the steroids issue and all that stuff. I’d like to see Hank keep the record.”

It’s nice when some people, despite what you think about their opinions, aren’t afraid to speak their minds.

  1. Question One: If you could add one player to the Hall of Fame, who would it be? Mine would be either Roger Maris, Jim Rice or Pete Rose.

    Question Two: If you could remove one “Undeserving” Player, who would it be? My answer USED to be Joe Tinker.

  2. My first choices to get in: Ron Santo, Jim Kaat, Bert Blyleven, Marvin Miller

    I’m still thinking about who to take out. Tinker is a good option though.
