View Full Version : Dead Man Breaks Stolen Base Record

Rafael Furcal has suddenly remembered (http://espn.go.com/mlb/news/2002/0215/1333208.html) that he was born in 1978, not 1980. That means that he wasn't a teenager when he stole 40 bases in the 2000 season. Therefore, the single-season record for SBs while a teen reverts to this guy (http://www.baseball-reference.com/c/cobbty01.shtml)

The average age of major leaguers could have a serious leap this year.

So, Danny Almonte wasn't the first to lie about his age?

The real question isn't who was the first to lie about their age, the real question is who was the youngest to lie about their age? Or is it the oldest???
Maybe Furcal and Alamonte had some type of age swapping hedge thingy ala Enron going on.

That's a helluva(n) idea, anon3. Just think about it: high-school students get to drink and insecure women get to be 39 forever. Talk about win/win!

My prediction is that in two years Danny Almonte will move back to the DR and "remember" that he is in fact 16 years old and sign a contract with a major league team.
