I got it

Let me go on record right now, before they give the answer, that I nailed the AFLAC trivia on tonight's broadcast. Quickly. I don't know whether to be proud or ashamed.

(Four Nats who were traded/let go/signed elsewhere and then came back - one of them obviously Livan)

Got home from my wife's birthday dinner just in time to see that long home run and Dukes' dropped ball. And hear the trivia question.

(You get the others yet, if you aren't watching? I'll post the answer in the comments section. NAILED it!)

Mike Stanton
Ray King
Zach Day

Wasn't Zach Day supposed to be really good? I remember he was trotted out to some promotional stuff before the team ever played a game. I showed in St. Louis for a series early in 2006 and there he was - BACK again!

Zack Day was the one I didn't get (and wouldn't if I had 50 guesses).

Is he out of baseball?

Gus said...

According to Wikipedia-

On January 11, 2008, Day signed a minor league contract with the Minnesota Twins, but was released in early May having made 6 appearances for the Fort Myers Miracle. After his release, he announced his retirement due to continuing shoulder problems.

Doesn't Jesus Colome technically qualify?

What about Daryle Ward? I guess he doesn't count till he reappears on the MLB team?

MikeHarris said...

Colome is a wild card Steven - did he ever actually play for another team?
The others appeared for other teams: Day, Colorado. Hernandez (Dbacks, Twins, Mets). King (Brewers, I think). Stanton (Red Sox, Giants, I think).

Did Day make it back to the majors in his second stint? There's Hector Carrasco too. But I guess that's a Ward-ish situation: he never made it back to the MLB club either.

MikeHarris said...

Yes, Day did. Can't remember how many starts he got but it was at least one because I saw it.
