A couple of days ago, I didn't have terribly nice things to say about the website At Home Plate. To their credit, they've posted this nice article about Brewer hero Gorman Thomas. Go read it yourself...if you insist on skipping it, here's a couple highlights:
Gorman as a Brewer pre-dates my baseball fandom, and no matter how many times I read about him, I'm shocked that he was a centerfielder--and maybe even a good one. As the spiritual predecessor of Rob Deer, Russell Branyan, and Adam Dunn, it just seems wrong that he could cover much ground and move gracefully.
Anyway, nice story; it's great that a guy like Gorman is still in the organization, and that people still write about him.
