    Thought about him and my old Seaver/Cy battery but since two catchers are a must have I decided to grab the best available.

    So sorry, but the Six Demon Bags front office is currently weighing its options (and are most definitely NOT watching Tremors for the 28th time).

    Your call is important to us. Please hold.

    National Treasure...maybe it's a clue!

    He's watching Tremors for the 28th time. Tremors came out in 1990, the first in a series. It takes place in the desert. Jim Carrey hums the song "girl from Ipanema", which was covered in 1966 by Shirley Bassey, who did the theme for James Bond movies including Goldfinger. Pierce Brosnan played James bond In Goldeneye, a callback to Goldfinger, in which a thrilling action set piece takes place atop a large radar dish, filmed in Puerto Rico.

    So, who is the only player to wear #28, won the rookie of the year in 1990, was born in 1966, in Puerto Rico, and is "Sandy"?

    The Pick is Sandy Alomar, Catcher from Cleveland.

    The San Francisco Six Demon Bags of Chinatown have come to conclusion that we're overthinking this.

    We select Jimmie Foxx (1B, 1932)

    Like I told my last wife, I says, “Honey, I never drive faster than I can see. Besides that, it’s all in the reflexes.”

    C -
    1B - Jimmie Foxx (1932)
    2B - Rogers Hornsby (1925)
    3B -
    SS -
    LF - Babe Ruth (1921)
    CF - Hugh Duffy (1894)
    RF -

    SP - Ron Guidry (1978)

    And you were almost right. It was pretty much a last minute swerve to Duffy.

    Paige was on my short list too. Unfortunate.

    Nevertheless, I believe I have a trifecta of picks to close out this round and start the third. So here we go.

    Eddie Plank, Starting Pitcher, 1909
    Rod Carew, First Base, 1977
    Mariano Rivera, Relief Pitcher, 2005
