We have had so few superbly classy individuals put on the orange and blue...Rusty, Cliff Floyd, Doug Flynn, Mike Jorgensen are the guys who stand out to me having talked with each, that it is unfortunate when one leaves the scene.

I will miss him.

Flynn was my favorite player growing up for this reason and he was great on Kiner's Korner. Looked up his OPS yesterday and - at least he was a great person (and great defensively, to the eye, anyhow).

Anyhow, not sure whether you met them, but I would think, at a minimum, Granderson and Mookie have to be on this list. Will never be a better person that DW wearing a Met uniform, though.

Absolutely Mookie and Grandy...Mookie should have been a one-franchise player

Doug Flynn was a really nice guy and a great fielder.

Yeah, one of the reasons I liked DW so much was that he was the type of hitter I really liked - with the whole OBP and XBH combo (aka very good), but the talk of how nice and good of a person he is was also a big part of what drew me to him. That may be kinda silly since it's not like we really know these players - I'm sure some of them are pretty different in 'real life' than the public image they portray - but still I can't help but get invested in that stuff (Ventura was another guy I liked for similar reasons). I have been enjoying the various little stories various reporters and fans have shared in recent days about the various 'nice guy' things DW did for them.
