  1. You sure that’s not the re-incarnation of the Spiders playing in Cleveland’s home games? Are Charlie Knepper and Coldwater Jim Hughey replacing Rick Waits and Wayne Garland? And who let Harry Lochhead at short instead of Duffy.

    However, Bruce Bochte is the re-incarnation of Buttermilk Tommy Dowd.

    • Superb comment. The 1899 Spiders finished 20-134 and made these guys look like Lou Boudreau’s crew. But yeah, we’re having some issues by the lake.
