Evans really didn't find himself as a hitter until after Lynn departed for the land of Brandon Wood, so the trio missed the opportunity to play together when all 3 were at the top of their games, but it was a tremendous group. No one has ever played RF in Fenway as well as Evans (him finishing his career in Baltimore is nearly as bad as Bobby Orr being a Blackhawk), Rice was a monster from 75 to 86 when his eyes started failing him. (Sox probably win the 75 series if his wrist isn't broken by a HBP).
Would have been nice to see Lynn remain in Boston and see the group play together for longer, though Lynn's numbers declined after leaving Boston.
Certainly the best trio in my lifetime for the Sox. Overall...will need a little thought.

I think your list is otherwise spot on.
Thanks, guys....I obviously enjoy conversations like this one. I still feel like I'm missing some trio, just cannot put my finger on it....

You know, I barely got to know him at BTN, I don't even think he'd know my name, but would recognize me by sight...I knew a lot of the other talent a lot better, especially the football analysts because I worked with them a lot more.

Everyone loves Tim there, though, he's a crack-up. Wish I had known him a tad better. I'm sure the kids at your camp loved him....

I'm sure I missed it, what happened?


Also, The Cubs may be disappointing me, but I'll gladly take another NL All-Star win (no jinx?)

The caption under his picture read "Big Fat Prince Fielder in 2007." I laughed heartily.
