Weekend:

Former Cubs utility man, Carmen Fanzone (best name EVAH) is an accomplished player of these two instruments?

Monday:
On August 21, 1975, these two brothers became the first and, as of the 2011 season, only brother to combine to hurl a shutout against the Dodgers. Which brother started?

He plays some kind of horn is all I know. He played the national anthem at Wrigley at least once or twice.

For part 2 -- WIU Leatherneck brothers.

1. I award you no points, you are Spriggs, you should be able to tell me precisely what instruments and how often, etc...

2. I'm not good with nicknames.

Geez, get all defensive when I expect perfection out of you...

 

1. Half-right.  The two instruments are born horns and the unnamed one appears to be related to the trumpet.

2. Bingo.

Didn't mean to get all defensive, Hans I'm just still pissed about the whole Marmol thing yesterday.  I cannot believe he's still in the majors.  (but I'd have to guess you really are sort of a prick in real life). 

 

 

Clarinet?

Yes, when people describe me, the first word out of their mouth is "prick".  Jackass.

 

Ya, the Marmol thing is frustrating.  I think Dale should have yanked him early and let Parker go in there but I can see the logic if Dale is basing a tiny portion of who to use on trade value.

 

No, horn, not wind instrument.

No, and at this point, most people who would guess have viewed this post.

 

Flugelhorn

It usually goes:

 

Joe? Prick can't even stop eating hamburgers long enough to form a coherent thought.

If one of them isn't a mandolin, Carmen Fanzone can go fuck off.
