Nice story Bickster but no 500 victories for RJ.

Focus Groups? Confused

Gonzo first over maybe the greatest Lefty the game has ever seen? Evil or Very Mad

Oh ya this team doesnt like lefties. Laughing

Well at least I know who will be on the cover for that homestand. $$$$$$ Wink

Dumb in a tradition of dumb. Sounds about right.

Gotta wonder if these are the same "focus groups" that made byrnes the face. I am as big a fan of Gonzo as anyone else but RJ should have been first.

I am a big fan of both and Im sure RJ is next number inline Smile

I applaud the Dback for changing their minds. So many players have ment so much to the team and the fan. Thank you Dbacks for a classy move

If the Club is intent on retiring anybody's number, I'm glad it's Gonzo. He represents the organization's beginning/roots the best, was always very tied to the community, was actually upset to leave (instead of demanding trades/higher salaries), and he played his best years here.

Gonzo's in Cooperstown... this week

Hope those kids realize how lucky they are to get to do that. It'd be such a great experience.
