*The combo of Schmidt & Samuel would still probably hit better than Dobbs & Valdez, even at their elder ages.

*Barry Bonds actually was skinny and a leadoff hitter at one time.

*The Pirates had quite the musical influence on their squad in '86, with The Doors Jim Morrison and the singer of There's No Business Like Show Business Johnny Ray.

*Rhoden pitched the complete game for the Pirates and collected 3 hits. He was a decent pitcher back in the day (151-125, 3.59 ERA) and hitter (.238/.576, 38 doubles, 9 homeruns).

Looks like the same line up in 2010 as it was in 1986, they just changed the names.

Bonds @ leadoff LOL. If you told anybody in 1986 (hell even 1996) that Bonds would have over 700 HRS, you'd get laughed off the field.
