Buckweaver, Crypt Keeper?

    Buckweaver's new photo is creeping me out.

    Was that taken after Buck had already died?

    He looks like the Crypt Keeper.

    He's ugly as sin. Get over it. :D

    Sorry, buckdub. That was a hanging slider right down the middle.

    That dude looks like someone beat the shit outta his face with a big fat dick sledgehammer.

    All dressed up for a criminal trial:


    That's the best he's gonna look. :-\

    Why do so many women dig this guy so much, then?

    Shrewd choice, on the part of John Sayles, to go with the lady-thriller Cusack as Weaver. ;D

    Also good casting decisions on Sheen as Felsch and, the best of all, Strathairn as Cicotte.

    The ladies of his day certainly seem to dig him in that pic...

    He was definitely a ladies' man, and he was always flamboyant, even after he got married. Loved to show off his colorful silk shirts from Fifth Avenue after a road trip to New York. He and his wife were in a vaudeville troupe (along with Sox pitcher Jim Scott and his wife) during a couple offseasons.

    A character on the field. Very chirpy -- always arguing and bench-jockeying, but always with a smile on his face.

    That postcard is from his rookie year, 1912. He was an instant hit with fans. They called him "Error-A-Day Weaver" -- he made 71 of 'em that year at shortstop. Could get to any ball hit to him, just had a tendency to throw 'em into the stands.

    I would love to go back and watch a few games in the stands during the early part of the 20th century...

    Polo Grounds. I'd give my left nut to have seen the Giants play at the Polo Grounds.

    Preferably a Giants-Cubs game from 1905-08 or a Giants-Dodgers game from 1954-56.
