I want to hear my name mentioned with others such as Hornsby, Cobb, Gehrig, Mantle, Robinson, Yastrzemski, Foxx and Williams.
When I grow up, I want to be a nay sayer to all the modern stats such as WAR, OPS+ and Runs from Positional Scarcity (no...that last one is not made up...I swear). I shouldn't need a slide rule, abacus and 3 calculators to figure out how important a player is in my lineup.

Miguel actually took care of one of 2 events that I hadn't seen in my lifetime. Carl Yastrzemski completed his triple crown season of 1967 just 26 days before I was born. The other event is my Maple Leafs winning the Stanley Cup (they last completed that task 5 months before I was born.)
Maybe if I'm lucky, I'll now get to see the 2nd event happen sooner rather than later.
I hope I didn't make you laugh too hard with that last statement.
Thanks for reading, Robert
