no to both but I really like Kat’s guess. Those side burns were very “Foster-esque”. San Dawg has TEXTED me the correct answer but he had already guessed DT. That brings me to an important rule going forward: you get one guess. Don’t keep firing off guesses. You miss on your first guess, you’re out for the guy currently posted.
and here’s another rule: If no one is getting it I reserve the right to switch it out to another guy. I like searching for and cropping these dudes up.
Rufus T. Firefly?
Only 12 daze until pitchers and catchers report.
Only 22 daze until Giants ST baseball is on the air.
I guess the first sign that you have a series problem, is when you decide to spend $50 bucks to have an $8 King cake shipped to you overnight. It does come with some cheap plastic beads, so I’ve got that going for me.
Yesterday was much easier with the lefty glove in the pic.
Could be Von Joshua? Whoever it is does look like McCovey AND Foster.
Chuckles got it again, it is indeed Von Joshua.
He was with the G’s in ’75 and 76′. Not much run production but a good average hitter. I remember him now that his name has been mentioned. Good pull, Flav.
Your pissing me off Chuck you clown 🤡
These are pretty funny. Joshua was one of those guys who played for Dodgers and Giants too, right?
those sideburns are awesome. Did Mac ever have that look?
Loo what is the connection you mentioned with Thomasson and ’78 series?
In the early 70s Willie Mac was sporting some series sideburns.
Chuck wins again. And it’s a bonus win because I was worried he’d turn up dead and lifeless in Pittsburg last night. I’ll pop another one up later this morning.
I think that’s more like Antioch, but way cool he went by O’Douls and that is a sad story being fought out in the courts over all the memorabilia etc.
I looked up 78 Series quickly on B/R, won by Yanks and Reggie with 4 Ws after losing first 2. Dent got the MVP and Davey Lopes hit 3 HRs for LA, as many as entire Yanks team. Pitchers did not bat in this one either. Thomasson went 1 for 4 for Yanks…
It was touch and go for a while. Luckily a homeless guy crashed out next to me and his stench revived me by the time I got to Bay Point.
Here’s Big Mac with the stylin’ sideburns. I forgot he was with the A’s as a DH. . .
Notice Dave Winfield in the background. I like those Padre uniforms and they sometimes still wear them in throwback games. Jack Murphy/Qualcomm Stadium as well, which could get the wrecking ball treatment before long with the Chargers now gone. This pic was before they did their own Mt Davis stadium addition to get the Super Bowl one freaking time. The old Murph was a nice place to watch a baseball game.
FYI—this not the actual 1974 Topps McCovey card—though it is a much improved knock-off. The orginal has one of those dreadful repainted hats they used to use when a guy got traded, but they didn’t use a picture of him on his new team.
Yeah Joshua came from the Dogs. And he went back if i remember right
George Foster? I didn’t check any other posts.
Chuckles strikes again! Von Joshua.
Yes, I see that now . . . That was YUGE! I bow to your “Awesomeness!”
Here’s Big Mac with the sideburn/mustache combo done to perfection . . .
Did you pay taxes on any of that autograph signing money? What autograph signing money?…
On the new photo Flav posted, I vote Greg “Moonman” Minton.
no but that is a great guess!
My backup pick Scott Garrelts?
Blade… Come on my brother, The Catfish never was a Giant..
Photo looks like him, although Catfish didn’t wear glasses to the best of my knowledge.lol
that is fan_-FUCKING-tastic. You posted that at the exact same moment I was posting a hint. You get a point. Chuck 2 Diggity 1 Everyone else 0
No to all of those. I will give you a hint. His first name is John
Ok, new one is up. Go!
not feeling too well with cold scratchy throat yada yada, took a nap before going into work. saw the new pic and then saw the guesses…
Catfish Hunter? Looks more like Johnny Lee Blue Moon Odom if anyone.
Missed the Curtis one entirely lol.
Yeah, Blade guessed Catfish on the Curtis pic. There’s a new pic up now
Damn. Out to lunch–literally. I had a feeling that Whitfield was gonna come up soon on this.
BAM! I didn’t even see the john Curtis.
I thought you guys were talking about Rollie Fingers for a while there. Then I noticed the new pic.
Reading thru the posts just now and seeing a bunch of white dudes as guesses, when the pic is of a black Giant, and I was beginning to wonder if a few of you were color blind. Lqtm.
Another W for Chuck. I’ll pop one more up for the day in a few minutes and we’ll be done till tomorrow.
Now I’m thinking nobody gonna get this dude. But I’ll leave it up. No hints for now. Maybe dinner time if nobody gets it by then
Is it Brenly?
Negative. Top of leaderboard is ofer, time for a secondary contender to make a move!
lol, BLADE beats out Loo by a whisker Fuck it, I’m doing another one….
Jack Clark (but I think WJ could be right on the Count Montefusco).
How could it be Clark or the Count? The dudes wearing a left handed glove.
Damm I want this one!!
no it’s none of those dudes. You Flap vets are gonna lol when you get this guy right
Fuck it I’m going with Phil Nastu!!!
Damn, you right!
Great job, Kat & Flav!
Before the mustache? That could be it!
No, it’s Nastu the drink hustler…
I should stick to my fields of expertise – politics and world history…
Since I mentioned Blue moon Odom once Whitfield’s pic got up there, got me thinking about black SPs for Oakland—Blue Odom Stew Norris off the top of my head. SF Giants?
All I can come up with are Holland and that flamethrowing RHP out of the pen
Willie: The widely circulated (in NY anyway) trivia question I alluded to yesterday was this:
In the final inning of the 1978 WS, the Yankees had an all white team out in the field.
Can you name them?
Seems somehow racist in these sensitive times, but back then it was really just what it was meant to be…trivia
yeah that’s who I was thinking of. thx AK
yeah Loo other than him I can’t come up with one.
Kat! You wanted it and you fucking NAILED it. Well DONE! Phil Nastu the drink Hustler. lqtm
Ok, this one is the FINAL one of the night. I think.
Willie the phillie Montanez?
Man great game in Pac 12 with Cal and Utah in double OT Cal up 1 with 3 minutes to go.
Bears pulled it out !
Pac 12 has shot at 5, maybe 6 in the tourney this year…
Loo is ON the board. Ok, I’m out. Let’s do it again tomorrow!
C’mon, I’m just warming up!
Hell I never saw a pic of Loo’s winner, that was weird. Just as well, I couldn’t stand David Green!!!

I’d take The Outfield over our outfield.
