    An even bigger surprise is that it was Bob Melvin.

    That's good, because Almvp is much harder to pronounce than Almoty. (I was looking up Almoty to see what team he played for and if the Yankees could sign him.)

    What happened was I was on twitter, and I saw that AL manager of the year and Cora were both trending, so I just put two and two together and assumed that Cora had been named Manager of the year. Now I just want to crawl under a rock.

    It is evident that this thread must be kept alive at all cost.

    I don't recall him but I remember a pitcher named Al Moty on Cleveland in the early 60s

    Al actually played for Toledo for nearly 20 years. Interestingly, he made his major league debut at age 19, threw one pitch and recorded the last out of Cleveland's season that year. Then never came back up to the majors until he was 39 years old in 1962. He then pitched sporadically for the next three years as part of the Toledo shuffle. He retired after the 65 season. He went on to run a chain of gas stations (Sinclair) in the Toledo area.

    Al is 95 years old now. Lives with his great grand daughter in Maumee, Ohio. Just outside of Toledo. He still drives and is an expert at pumping his own gas.

    I believe there was also an outfielder who played briefly for the Philadelphia Athletics during WWII, name of Ty Almo. Hit two triples off Bobo Newsom in one game, but otherwise never amounted to much.

    Re: Almoty

    Iíve been seeing this thread in the forum, and have slipped it because I didnít know who Almoty was, and suspected it might be spam. Curiosity finally got the best of me, so I decided to finally read the whole thread (Iíve opened it before, but didnt get past the first couple of posts because they didnít make sense to me). Now that I have finally read the whole thread, I have no words. Well, I have no MORE words. IHNMW

    I think Ihnmw was a star shortstop in Japan sometime in the '90s.

    Wasnít there an embarrassingly racist series of books and movies about a Japanese detective named Mr. Moty?

    And how many unembarrassingly racist books and movies are there? Examples?

    Shanghai Express is too fine a movie for me to be embarrassed by the racism. One Asian character is actually played by an Asian-American, and played with great dignity. Several of the most racist characters are lampooned, or even punished, for their racism.

    I can't kill Treasure of the Sierra Madre either, because "We don' need to show no steenkin' badges" is such an awesome scene.

    I think The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an entirely unembarrassing book, but I'd argue the extent of its racism as well.

    Good answer.
