    {Howard related because the current HSS is like Willie playing for the Mets}

    If Alex Rodriguez passes Willie on the all time home run list on Willie's birthday, I'm gonna blow my mind up.

    That's actually a really good assessment of where we are with the HSS these days.

    And I too will want to shit in diapers in lose cats if ARod breaks the record today. Fuck ARod.

    I remember seeing him playing for The Mets. Pathetic. The planes flying over from LaGuardia had more energy, poor old guy

    I would say he was the greatest, except for Babe Ruth. Ruth tops them all because of his great pitching.

    Most people don't know how good a pitcher he was.
    • 20 game winner in 1916 and 1917
    • Career ERA 2.28 - 17th lowest of all time. Lower than Cy Young (2.63)
    • Career WHIP 1.16 - lower than Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson, Jim Palmer, and Bob Gobsson

    I've always thought Swoboda's catch was better.

    Yeah. He should have retired two years earlier than he did.

    My boyhood baseball hero. Happy Birthday Willie - you were one of the very greatest to ever play the game.

    Willie was a five tool player. I don't think the Babe could run and field as well as Mays could.
