Moises Alou: Nice Stats, Plus A Tango With Bartman
But the snapshot of Alou in my mind was his mini-tantrum following the infamous Bartman ball during Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS between Alou's Cubbies and the Marlins. You recall Alou reached into the stands for a foul ball but came up empty because of ol' Bartman. After the game I thought to myself, what if Alou told the pitchfork-carrying masses not to blame Bartman, perhaps that guy with the earphones would have been able to lead a more normal life.
Nah, I don't think Alou rolls that way. He rolls with a towel on his head in this 1996 Donruss card.
