Blake Street Bombers

SDS

So close... would have easily preferred a Vinny Castilla/Andres Galarraga over some of these legends.

SDS

Ya its been an ok year so far for the rockies though. Ive been happy with two inning bosses so far

SDS

Ya got Larry, Dante, Cargo, and The Todd.

I see very little room for complaint.

Ranger fans are over hear with "We got 14 versions of Gallo, 2 Youngs and 2 Pudges, but no Ryan.
No Juan.
No Reuben.
No Raffy.
No Will.
No Rogers.
No Brown.
No Rusty.
No Julio.

Lol true!

There isn’t a Will the Thrill card yet, is there? Did they not retain his rights?
Juan Gon would be a fun card. Just no room for him and Greer in the outfield.

I would like to see a Mark Texiera in Ranger form. Maybe an A-rod one day. Obviously neither of those are happening. Like I mentioned in another post, a HRD Hamilton would be great.

I'd be surprised if Clark wasn't eventually a henchman this year, though I'd be just as surprised if he wasn't in Giants gear.

Those 2 over Larry? Wtf... Do you watch baseball?

You got Helton and Larry this year.. you have nothing to complain about.

That would be like Jays fans getting Carlos and Doc...

SDS

Next year, I think they should try completing a team with their Legends. Obviously not every team has a great or a legend at every position. For example though, the Rockies:
C - ???
1B - Todd Helton, Andres Galarraga
2B - ???
3B - Vinny Castilla
SS - Tulowitzki
LF - Bichette
CF - Gonzalez
RF - Walker, Burks

Buddy, it wouldn’t be the Blake Street Bombers without Walker! I’m a Braves fan, and by no means am I complaining. (Since you seem to be unfamiliar with this era of baseball, the Blake Street Bombers consisted of Walker, Bichette, Andres Galarraga, and Vinny Castilla).

I’m just pointing out how close they came to giving home run fans of the 90s the second best thing since the 98 home run race between Junior, Sosa, and Big Mac.... or 3rd best thing if you rank the Glavine/Maddux chicks dig the long ball commercial lol. I’ll post the link below, in case you don’t know about that either.

“Do you watch baseball?” Of course I watch baseball.... c’mon, man! Lol

2012 Rookie Wilin Rosario at catcher maybe?
And for 2B, a flashback DJ LeMahieu of some sort.

Ellis Burks would be cool! Forgot about him!

SDS

I think that idea would be dope! Burks had arguably the best Rockie season ever.

SDS

Ellis Burks - 1996
.344 BA
40 HR
128 RBI
32 SB
