Know Your Buccos!

Which historical figure would you most like to meet?

Alex Presley: George Washington

Pedro Alvarez: Probably Alexander the Great.

Rod Barajas: Jesus.

Jason Grilli: That Ghengis Khan fella. He had some major sack.  

Garrett Jones: Oh, man. My wife. Definitely my wife.

Jeff Karstens: George Jeffreys, 1st Earl of Jeffreys, Lord Chancellor and Chief Justice of the King's Bench at the Court of St. James. He was responsible for exposing that muddlesome Titus Oates for sedition and buggery under the Sedition and Buggery Act of 1533, and for breaking the Shrewsbury Pickle Blockade following the Glourious Reformation in Compton-upon-Drastonbury and Drastonbury-upon-Hackleford. He was also my great-great grandfather on my mother's side, and my great-great-great grandfather on my father's.

Brad Lincoln: Abraham Lincoln. I don't think we're related or anything, but we have the same last name. Isn't that wild?

Chris Resop: Daniel Moskos.

Neil Walker: Franco Harris. I mean, being from Pittsburgh, you can't underestimate the importance of Franco Harris. There's a statue of him out at the airport! Isn't that crazy? You guys know I'm from here, right?

Michael McKenry: Either Malcolm X or Jesus. Probably Malcolm X, because without Malcolm, we don't have Jackie Robinson.

Casey McGehee: Jesus.

Andrew McCutchen: Toussaint Louverture. Black Jacobins, man.

Juan Cruz: Charlotte Corday. Au cours de la droite de la Terreur, de nombreux membres de ma famille ont été tués. Elle se leva à la tyrannie.

Erik Bedard: Jesus.

A.J. Burnett: Jeremiah Johnson. That guy could kill and eat anything. Did you ever see that flick?

Josh Harrison: Historical? Haha! Oh, man. Um...I don't know, man.

Joel Hanrahan: Kent Tekulve, but only so I could punch him in the face.

Jared Hughes: Jesus. Definitely.

Clint Barmes: Jesus

Tony Watson: Margaret Thatcher. It's all about the powerful women.

James McDonald: Lando Calrissian. I know he and Han were buddies, so that had to have been tough to play both sides like that, especially since he's the only black guy in the galaxy. I'm sure he caught a lot of shit when that war was over.
