Numbers don’t mean everything old man

Zaun had all the intangibles you’re just too caught up in the good old days to admit it

Makes me feel old. I saw the Big Red Machine play numerous times in Houston and Atlanta. That was quite a lineup.

Johnny's 2 HRs in Game 4 of 1976 WS

Not the prettiest swing, but easily my favorite player growing up.

Happy 70th birthday, #5.

The picture of him holding like 7 baseballs in one hand is impressive and probably scared women World wide

Tread carefully when you see Johnny Bench parked at Sonic.

I don't deny that Roy C is in the big three, the more talented of the three, and would have ended up the best of three had his career not ended early ETA: or lost his early years to the negro leagues
