Juan Sammy

Juan Samuel is the Featured Fightin' on PhilliesPulse. Samuel was one of my all-time favorite Phils and I was one pissed off 8 year old when they traded him to the Mets for Lenny Dykstra and Roger McDowell. Yeah, I guess it worked out but I was still pissed. You can't tell me that you didn't have at least 4 or 5 of that card pictured?

Career w/Phillies: .262 AVG / 100 HR / 413 RBI / 249 SB (philliesnation)

  1. Ha! Classic. Sammy was one of the wildest free-swingers ever. Love the wet 80's fro. Kind of looks like Billy D. Williams. Works every time. I was a Sammy fan too. Although the Phils should've been locked up for robbery with the trade for Dykstra and the Second Spitter. Sounds weird, but it didn't seem like a bad deal for the Mets at the time since Dykstra was a platoon guy with them.

    Still need to find the Sammy Ellio's commercial.
