Would someone please mark that McLemore. I see M. McLemore pitches a scoreless inning in relief in the boxscore of the Houston Astros game the other day and think to myself, "when the hell did Mark McLemore come back to baseball, as a pitcher no less?". Well, truth be known, there's a second coming of Mark McLemore and this one is white.
The McLemore I was thinking of is a gansta utility player that made a living playing for various teams during a span of 19 seasons. He played for the Angels, Astros, Orioles, Rangers, Mariners, and Athletics logging 1,832 games, scoring 943 runs, smacking 1,602 hits, stealing 272 bases, batting .259 with a decent .349 on base %. During his career he played every position on the diamond except for 1st base and catcher. Keep it real brotha!
The new McLemore is still a young pup, and he's a reliever that just came up from the Astros' system. He made his MLB debut on May 24th of this year. Sorry kid, but you can't compare to the original.
