    Mostly players from the '80s and '90s. Someone there must be a SportsJournalists.commer - Brook Jacoby's listed...

    It's cool to find out what these guys are up to. But if they're still in baseball, as a coach, instructor or "special assistant," isn't that what we kind of expect?

    I think the Kent Hrbek Outdoors is interesting.

    Does anyone find this odd: Rob "Strikeout" Deer is a HITTING INSTRUCTOR!?

    Brook Jacoby -- OK to decent infielder with the Cleveland Indians and Oakland A's. Last seen in a gimp costume and a Cleveland Indians hat in an unidentified woman's basement. He didn't seem to be resisting, but ether and a bloodied baseball bat were visible.

    Best part? I knew which one he was from the thumbnails.

    And Ellis? It's funny when, you know, Armchair_QB does it. Since it's his schtick. Your schtick is photoshopping Wheaties boxes. Doing something just to steal it from someone else? Not so funny.

    Just saying. Go make some 8-second jokes.

    Well, how about if Ellis photoshops a Wheaties box with pornstached Brook on it? ;)

    I sort of agree with you, but you figure 80% of the players are either still involved in the game or completely retired because they're loaded.

    Rare is the type like Steve Sax involved in the financial field or whatever it is.

    This is great. Unfortunately, it's like a high school reunion. You never read or hear about the people ho you really want to know about. Also you only hear about people who are doing well. Many ex-players are struggling.

    My thoughts exactly when I read it. Kind of the same reaction I had to Rob Deer teaching prospects how to hit!

    My favourite Rob Deer year was his 1991 season in Detroit where the sidebar talk was whether Deer would have a higher strikeout total than batting average. It was close: 175 SO and a .179 BA.
