    The only one I can even come up with an educated guess for is the bonus and I will say Brad Wilkerson.

    5--I always get this confused; Either Parrish or Kareem; I am fairly sure one played the most games, and one played the most minutes.

    I think it's Parrish.

    I nearly hit the quinella by guessing Bobby Jones (the former Met) for No. 4, but then I remembered the Mets had two Bobby Jones, and I couldn't remember which one was the good one.

    Wow, all this time I assumed he was born in NJ because he went to Cherry Hill East HS.
    Speaking of which, I was imbibing many cocktails Saturday in the bar at the Westin near LAX, and the bartender was from Cherry Hill.
