If I remember correctly, I started noticing it during the PBO search process, one of the posters on the main page, who was the only troll at the the time, kept saying how the Cubs needed to hire him, blah blah blah. Since we were a small community at that time (and I was fairly new then) it exploded into what you see today.

Dick Tidrow was main board and resident head scratcher die hard's suggestion for GM after Hendry was fired. Since then he has become the Chuck Norris of BleacherNation.

However I'd be careful because DIck knows that you don't know him, and that is not a sin easily forgiven. He is watching you!

Jack Pfiester, also the man who's single game strikeout record Kerry Wood broke. I don't really know much about him, except that I read a book called something like "The great shutout pitchers" about all of the old war horse, 300 inning pitchers that used to grow on trees.

And if I could be so humble-braggy, here's the first comment on that transition:


Dick Tidrow is the new Chuck Norris.


Dick Tidrow didn’t grow an amazing mustache. Thousands of little animals fought to the death to be the king of Dick Tidrow’s upper lip.
