Skydiver Blindsides Shortstop, Crushes Him From Above

 

Ya.

 

The most notable Cubs player born on Christmas Day is Manny Trillo.  What seasons did he play for the Cubs?

Pretty sure he was there in '86.  I have nothing beyond that.

Well, they got him in a trade for Billy Williams - in 1975 I think. So I would say from 1975 to about 1981? Then he went to the Phillies as I recall, but I cannot remember what the trade was -- there were so many involving the Phillies around then. For Moreland maybe. Then he came back for a second stint from around 86 to 88 or so.

I'll say 1987. It's like playing Battleship. We don't know if its the little tugboat one, or the aircraft carrier.

Why is everyone just guessing a single year? "Sweet Swinging" Manny was a Cub for a long time dammit.

PS...I'm afraid TWC's 4 day drug-fest journey into the woods might have killed him. I'm worried about him.

Tim is suppose to be there with him... and I'm sure he is fine and having a better time than he would hanging out with us...

That was Sunday. Today is driving and them driving and then yet more driving. Tomorrow will be much if the same as well as the next day (except a beer or two with some dill weed).

Haha!!! There is no cell service for 1 1/2 hours south of there. Beautiful drive along the coast and through some redwoods. He wasn't too burnt out when I saw him.

OK, thanks CB...  I feel better! 

 

I was a little disappointed when I saw the redwoods.  Overrated.

Overrated? That's going out on a limb a bit don't you think?
