Can anyone guess who made the other five starts ... without looking at B-Ref or anything?Hint(?): The five starts were made by three guys.
One was Kim. I don't know how to spell his first name, and I can't look it up without breaking the rules. Starts with a B. Two-part name.One was another Pedro. Can't dredge his last name out of my memory.That's all I got.
That is amazingly good!Byung-Hyun Kim started 3 games.Pedro _______ started 1 game._____________ started 1 game.
Astacio, yes! I just looked it up so I won't say anymore. And thank you! Perhaps it was mentioned in the DLUWT manuscript so I had a refresher.
Is it someone who was a reliever on the Sox 25-man WS roster?
Nope, not in DLUWT.The third guy's first and last name each begin with the same letter.
Is it someone who was a reliever on the Sox 25-man WS roster?No. This was this guy's only appearance in the bigs in 2004. Major league debut, actually!
I was at the doubleheader with Abe Alvarez's debut against Baltimore at Fenway with my friend Pat. I think it was a day-night but we definitely saw at least the Abe game with his crooked hat. It's funny everyone got the other ones because this was the only one I knew! (Unless I'm wrong and this was '05 or something....)
Good trivia, I know who it was but completely forgot about BY Kim....This blog post really reminds me how much karma there was with that team....down 3 love but win one game and the perfect storm of starting/ shutdown pitching was all lined up.Amazing really....and the perfect way to end the alleged "curse"
It's funny everyone got the other onesAnd by everyone, you mean almost no one. :)
Ha. Okay I admit, once I saw it became a quiz, I kind of skimmed just looking for the word Alvarez to make sure it wasn't said already before I said it. What's also funny/cool is that I came to comments to say something like "I know one was Abe Alvarez since I saw it live, but who were the others???" So it was convenient that it had already turned into a quiz, with the one uncovered answer being the one I came to say! A small victory.... which is one more than Abe Alvarez got :(
July 22 - two days before the Brawl Game. Bellhorn and Mueller batted 1-2 in Alvarez's game.
No idea where this photo came from originally. I had never seen it before it was posted at SoSH. If I had known about it a month or two ago, I might have pushed to have it included in DLUWT.
I love looking at those faces again. What happy days!And wow, Pedro REALLY was small!I remember Kim. The others are gone with the wind. And I never would have come up with Kim myself.
The earliest copy I can find is the one tweeted by Blue Sky Entertainment & Sports (an athlete/celebrity marketing firm).
Look at how young they look, especially Pedro. Wow. It really has been ten years.
Look at how young they look, especially Pedro.That's the first thing I thought, too!When I think what has happened in my own life since that time, I realize how long ago it was. I imagine many of us feel that way.
