WE HAVE A WINNER AND A NEW LEADER.  I'm gonna give HBF a bonus point for naming the year of the three team journey.

Must have recognized the photo.  Here are the rest of the clues and the photo

1.    I once played on three teams in one year
2.    All three of those teams finished in last place that year.
3.    I played 12 years in the bigs, 10 for the same team.
4.    I made a spectacle of myself during one game with a slight but notable change to my uniform.
5.    Though the Gamesmaster can’t find documentation online, I wore #0 at the end of my career.
6.    My career batting average, in the .220s, wouldn’t keep me in a job today, even at my position.
7.    My name surfaced on this very board recently in reference to the Gamesmaster’s amazing game.
8.    I played in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
9.    I’m the only man in history to have my first career HR be in my first at-bat, and be an inside the park one. 
10.  I’d only hit 21 more HR in my career.

So you all have some work to do.  New standings:

HBF.............................9
Lobo316.....................7
Dogfacedgremlin.........7

Standings are incorrect, HBF has 10 points.

New game on Monday y'all.

Dammit!  Foiled by my own overkill research!

Yeah, I honestly can't see how Lemaster stuck around for 14 seasons.  His hitting was atrocious.  He must've been a helluva fielder.

Yep he was your traditional "late inning defensive replacement."

 

I can't find any evidence of it anywhere, but he wore 0 with the A's in '87.  Everything I can find says he wore something else.

My friends and I use to yell at him at Candlestick Park calling him Johnnie Disaster. He wasn't even that good a fielder. Some stupid Giants fans voted him in as the all decade SS for the Giants for the 80's.

Funny the A's used him as a DH for one game.

Who was a better alternative?

Ever heard about how Speier doesn't bathe?  Dude's got no grooming habits at all and by all accounts stinks like unfathomable BO and shit.

This handsome devil?  I don't buy it...



That's pretty gross, though.  Do you think that impacted the fans choosing Lemaster over him?  After all, I don't think I'd want some smelly bastard representing my all-time team.

It's true.  Supposedly it's because he's one of them earthy types - thinks bathing is bad for the environment because it wastes water, etc.

Seriously - I couldnt make this up.
