Smacking myself in the forehead - I'm so used to only typing people's last names on this site, I couldn't fathom the idea that they wanted his first name!

Same here until I looked at the length of the underscore. It was way too short for Henderson

Same here. Tried "Henderson" 10 times. The tried "Brock" once. Then I gave up. Need to read more closely.

Technically, Frank Thomas was known as "The Big Hurt", not just Hurt.

Yes, It only gave "unit" for Randy Johnson, and he is the Big Unit. That's why it only gave "hurt" for Thomas.

Was McGwire on the quiz, tshalla? You think there's ANYBODY out there that hates Bonds for cheating that doesn't also think McGwire cheated too? Bonds, McGwire, Sosa, Clemens, Palmiero, Manny Ramirez....they're all in the same bucket of slop.

Bonds gets a lot of extra attention because he displaced one of the most beloved figures in the game, Hank Aaron, from the most hallowed record in baseball history. He also gets what he earned by how he treated people. Research some of the crappy ways he treated "lesser" team employees. These guys all cheated, and they know it. But not all of them were complete and total jerks like Bonds and Clemens.

Spot on, Don, but you forgot Ortiz and Pettitte, as well as the third member of the Unholy Trinity, Alex Rodriguez, who is probably worse than Bonds and Clemens combined.

Phanatic is to Phillies as Bernie Brewer is to Brewers. I got the sausages thing, but it's not truly an analogy as Bernie Brewer is the official mascot--as is the Phanatic with the Phillies.
