Since I do remember Kevin Cash fondly, this got me thinking: is there some way to define those careers we remember happily vs. those that we are still annoyed by? Obviously, we all love (or at least appreciate) the stars and the quirky talents, but what about those other players, the ones who were disappointing, or came up small in big occasions, or were below replacement level?
...including Cleveland's Kevin Cash, who I'm sure we all fondly remember:P.
I could only do three poll questions, but of course a lot more players came to mind.
I thought I had universal love for all former non-felonious Red Sox, but I must admit I'm still a little upset at how bad Jack Clark was.
So is there some quality that preserves the dislike, e.g. overpaid or (allegedly) lazy? Or is it just a case-by-case basis? Were there any Red Sox during the Fenway celebration last spring that made you growl instead of cheer?
