Which players that you haven't faced would you most like to pitch against?

Six minute warning.............

Okay Collin, this is a question I ask all of my friends, and it's kind of an initiation of being my friend when I ask somebody the question, because it's a really important personal question. The question is ...... how would you kill someone with a piano?

All the best players, I love facing great players to see how good I am and what I need to work on.. dont get me wrong I truly think that all the MLB players are great but I like facing all the best of the best and see how I fare..

Sweet. DC is the place to be for hardcore, well, 20 years ago anyway.

Minor Threat, Rites of Spring, Youth of Today, and possibly my favorite, Worlds Collide.

What is your dream entrance music?

Taking the town and team out of the mix, what is your favorite park to pitch in and which is the worst? Why?

Does all that cheering and noise get distracting or do you just learn to tune it out?

Squeezing one more in: You, Desmond, and Bergmann are some of the last Expos prospects left (I was rooting for Clint Everts to be kept around). What was it like in '04 and '05 during the rumors and then the transition.


Thanks for doing this, we all know what a first-rate guy Spinman is, and 1 hour of your time during the holidays is very much appreciated.

I'm serious, I keep track of all my friends' answers to how they would kill someone with a piano. So far I have heard these answers:
- play really bad music until their ears bleed
- slam the lid down on their head
- stick them between the strings
- drop the piano on them (only one person said this)

Yeah its kinda cool that us 3 have stuck around so Long and also that they keep us around haha but yeah it was kinda cool to hear that we would be coming to DC that was awesome because we would be in a big market so it was good to know..

I ask my friends all kinds of weird questions. That's the only one that involves killing people though! Here is another question:

- If you had a pet squid what would you name it?
