Here we go again.  Same rules as last time...guess, ask questions, whatever.  If your question directly addresses an unrevealed clue then that clue will be reveealed.  I guess I changed that part.  With each new clue a new section of the puzzle is revealed.

Your first clue, and the picture...

Clues
1.    I was not an Oakland A, ever.  DFG is a fruit.

Okay, that one doesnt help much, I'll reveal another...

2.    I spent almost all of my 12 year career in the National League West

Is it Mike Ivie?  If it is, I protest, since I was going to guess him, but he only played in ELEVEN--not twelve--major league seasons.

Well done sir, I'm impressed.

More to come Monday - I'll stump you yet, and I'll do it with a Red Sox guy.

Between the 2 of us there really is no chance in hell of us being stumped. Cue up Vince McMahon's theme music.

I say I'll stump you with an A's player before you stump me with a Red Sox player.
