Bill Madlock sounds right. Not sure about the second one so I'll punt and say Mark Grace.

sorry about double post

I agree, it's most likely Madlock - the time is roughly correct and no way did he come from their minor league system (especially during the 70's).

Second one, either Wilson or Santo.

Madlock is correct...

Santo #2 in BB's, Grace #4, Hack Wilson #21

Definitely Madlock. Is the second one Banks? He didn't take a ton of walks each year but he did play a long time.

And as far as the Madlock answer goes- I hate to be old enough to know the answer for sure but I still remember driving around in my friend's car when we heard the news.

Ernie Banks 8th on the walks list....

Sosa?

Sosa - 6th

Sandberg?

Sandberg - 9th

I'll chime in with the last obvious answer - Billy Williams. He's 5th.

I looked it up.

that's the spirit...

Stan Hack? Cap Anson?

trivia carpet bombing, I like your style.

One of those is correct, the other is #3 on the list

I'm gonna go with Hack, mainly b/c 'hack' is the antithesis of taking a pitch!

...plus usually the records from pre-1900 aren't always complete...

it's Stan Hack!!!!

charley smith? lance johnson?

Walks - I'm going with Ernie.

The Rockies' World Series Ticket sale today suffered a total and complete meltdown. Heads should roll in the IT Dept.

Whatamess! Five hundred tickets sold. That's all. Even mannytrillo could have sold more.

Let's just say the server was not "sized" for this volume of ticket sales... lol.

"This morning, after more than 8.5 million hits on the Colorado Rockies website, Paciolan (Pack-ee-o-lan), Major League Baseball's ticket vendor, experienced a system wide outage that impacted all of its North American customers. As a result, the Colorado Rockies have suspended the sale of 2007 World Series tickets scheduled to be played at Coors Field."

8.5 million?

okay...seriously...the ticket resale/scalping industry is WAY out of control if 8.5 million distinct IPs are hitting their servers.

theyre already using a series of jamming tactics and hiring people for an hour or 2 on sale mornings...

8.5 million...geez...

Paciolan dropped the ball there, but even taking in account "e-scalpers" i wonder who would produce numbers expecting 8.5m hits as a load estimate for the launch? damn...

HA HA Maybe I should put my resume in over there in Denver...:)

as of now the incident is supposedly an "external malicious attack"...aka lol internet.

Madlock and Grace?

You know what would end ticket scalping? Raising the prices of face value tickets.

Chad - it's hard enough to afford to go to a playoff game. Are you saying they should cost more?

Yes. It's called supply and demand I'll be damned if I'm not a BIG supporter of supply side economics.

Ticket scalping to some degree is like commodities speculation.

If you Wrigley bought box seat tickets for September for $100 at that start of the season, by the end of the season you would be sitting pretty...unless the year was 2006. But I agree with Chad that if there are tickets that are always scalped for higher than their face value, then raising their prices would curb scalping. You can't apply that to all the Cubs tickets for a given season, though.
