Cool New Site

New baseball blog out there from two talented guys: Richard Lederer (formerly of Rich’s Baseball Beat) and Bryan (with a Y) Smith have teamed up to create Bryan will continue his Wait ‘Til Next Year posts about up-and-coming players.

No word on whether Rich and Bryan put fists together to activate Wondertwin Powers. But already, they’ve produced a series of interest, polling prominent baseball writers and observers about their favorite players from childhood.

Ever wanted to hear folks from front offices, the blogosphere and the baseball media at large wax nostalgic? Then this three-parter is for you. Some big names responded to the survey, and there is an interesting mix of answers here — from Hall-of-Famers to also-rans, from Willie Mays to Damon Berryhill.

Give it a look. You won’t be disappointed.

    Ok, guys, you can’t link to a story like that and then not chip in with your own childhood favorites!

    I’m guessing something along the lines of Haryold Reynolds, Alvin Davis, and Spike Owen.

    I–and others, I’m sure–really appreciate your willingness to alert us to other sites even though they might compete with USS MARINER for reading time.

    I had two favorite players growing up. One was — since I was a child of WGN cable and Cubs games — Andre Dawson. Yes, I know The Hawk never walked. But he was still awesome.

    My favorite Mariner was Harold Reynolds. My best friend and I both played second base, and Harold taught at various baseball camps in our area.

    I went through a stage for a couple of years where I was SURE that I knew the next superstar. I even bought a rookie card for 75 cents to make sure that I had one. Who was this god among men? Jeff Stone!.

    Come on, 2 triples in his first 4 at bats, a .362 average in his first 1/3 season at 23. How could he not be amazing?

    …well other than the fact that he fell off the cliff…

    I think Derek has talked about Will Clark…
