This is what I've been working on. Ready, Steady, GO! from the 60's. I'd guess no later than '65, Gerry and the Pacemakers' absolute zenith...
Stones with Brian still
Beatles introducing PJ Proby doing "Walkin' The Dog"!!!
backed up by The Vernons Girls (sounds like The Go-Gos...)
Cilla Black doing the standard
Gerry and the Pacemakers
Long John Baldry doing "Got My Mojo Workin'"!
and that's all just the first 15 minutes!
Ready, Steady, GO!
That’s fine and true, but the Rays are the best in the biz at developing talent. If they’ve given up on him, it’s fair to think they exhausted all the possibilities first. I think Grenier might not pan out, and Hall is still a couple years off, so if the Os think they see something worthwhile, Wander certainly has some appeal.
A good swing is not defined by the results. Also, remember that SF Giants are not know to produce good young hitters through draft and development. If you are the Orioles, you have to believe in your coaches and development staff when compared with other teams. With this much in his tank, you have to take a shot on a big power guy like this.
I watched some Spring Training at bats as well. He hit 4-5 HR's in the last few years. One video had him on the same field as Hanser Alberto in February 2019, lol.
I got a axe-handle pistol
On a graveyard frame
That shoot tombstone bullets
Wearin' balls and chains
I'm drinkin' TNT
I'm smokin' dynamite
I HOPE some screwball... start a fight!
Because I'm ready
Readyas anybody can be.
actually a Willie Dixon song...
Considering he only hit 153, you must’ve watched an awful lot of at bats before you got to that home run.
edit: Let me say again then I’m not complaining about the move, I just don’t see it as being necessary. Any waiver pick up is essentially risk free, so there’s no reason not to do it, I just didn’t know why we had interest in a power guy who hasn’t been able to hit in the majors, although it is a small sample size. Power is useless if you can’t hit the ball.1
