In my fanboy days in elementary school/junior high, I used to set my Will Clark Starting Lineup figure (out of the package) on top of my TV when the Giants needed a couple runs. It was my good luck charm, and damn if it didn't work a couple dozen times. I used it selectively.
The unopened figure would sit in my closet with the rest of the collection. Thoe figures were part of a buttload of Nuschler memorabilia that included:
Did the impending platoon of J.R. Phillips and Todd Benzinger really look that atttractive to then-GM Bob Quinn that we let him walk? Was it a money issue after acquiring Barry?
My memory doesn't serve me well here, because I can't remember why he was allowed to leave (subsequently ruin the lining of my stomach while watching those 2 buffoons hold down 1B after his departure.)
I'm guessing he was probably the favorite Giants player for a good number of McC'ers. His departure stung with a good quantity of the venom that was felt when Bob Lurie announced the team was moving to TB.
For the life of me, can someone remind me why the hell we didn't sign him after 1993?
