feel anyone with three nicknames is worth listening to. This is a
good suggestion and would remove the Incubus Macos from the Hallowed
Hall. Seriously Mister Gorbachev tear down that wall.
Hey Zip, As I've said before I am honored to be inducted in the inaugural class of the Hogs Hall of Fame, but I'm disappointed by all the controversy surrounding Areno and Macos.
Of course there is no doubt that Areno belongs but you have to admit zero home runs in 1672 at-bats is an incredibly embarrassing accomplishment. Even a blind squirrel catches an acorn sooner or later.
But I have to agree that Macos has no business in the Players Branch of the Hogs Hall of Fame. At least you didn't embarrass Andy given his woeful lifetime stats by putting him in the Players Branch. The Executive Branch gave Andy well-deserved recognition for his contribution to the Hogs. But unless you rename this branch Executives and Buffoons this doesn't work for Macos who certainly was no executive. Perhaps we should just gave him a Lifetime Achievement Award like they do in Hollywood? It basically means that you aren't Hall of Fame worthy but you played so many years that we feel obligated to give you something.

Zip, Just saw the Hogs Encyclopedia at the Hogs annual get together
for March Madness. Great job putting that encyclopedia together.
Canít wait to get my copy. It was an honor to be elected to the Hogs
Hall o Fame Inaugural Class of 2016. Itís awesome to be in the class
with the Inductees. Iím just thankful that I have a home run in my
Hogs career to avoid any controversy - unlike Areno.
zip, Great job on the encyclopedia!! Andy just told me the story
about the missing/found 2009 stats. It must have been meant to
be! Can you mail one to Elmer? Thanks man!
an honor to be elected to the HHOF. As you pointed out earlier you
did a great job on the Encyclopedia. I have one question. Will my
number be retired at the Hog's Open?
of travesties you better check the 1990 MVH. BA, OPS, OBA and
slugging percentage for D Sommers yet somehow T Sommers wins the MVH.
I assume that's the wrong first initial. Like you needed another MVH?
sure Areno would have hit a home run in the game he missed to see
the Moody Blues.
If being the team leading heckler will get you into the HHOF then I
want out. What an embarrassment to the entire organization. Next
thing you know players that have never hit a home run will be
Zip, just wanted to point a couple things left out of my HOF
credentials. I am also 3 time Cy Hog winner as well as only player
to win ROY, MVH, & CY HOG.
on the remarkable encyclopedia. It is a work to be proud of tainted
only by the curious inclusion of Candy Cummings Macos in the Hall of
Fame. His novelty inclusion diminishes the greatness of legendary
worthy hogs such as yourself. All the Macos stuff aside, the
encyclopedia really is an amazing piece of work.
- It has been a long time since you have dusted off the role as team
statistician, but it is clear you have not lost any of your skills
or attention to detail.
- Thanks for the encyclopedia. I was really not expecting to be at
the top for all time batting average! Really made my day. Little
Pung is totally going to pass me once he has enough at bats. Just
keep this the last update ever!!!
Encyclopedia Zip! Thanks brother. See you at the outing or maybe
