Excerpt from: Daily Dose: Good to the last drip...drop...whatever

Desipio.com, Thursday May 20, 2004

You know that Shawon is my favorite Cubs player of all time. I have no problem expressing my manly love for the shortstop with the superfluous 'o' in his name and the rocket right arm.

Shawon was an All-Star twice, hit a homer in game six of the World Series in 2002 that should have won it for the Giants and never once played a game where he didn't play as hard as he could. He was never a star, but we haven't had a better shortstop since. Not for one day.

My favorite Shawon Dunston moments are these:
1) 1989 against the Mets, he goes out well into left field and fields a pop up over his head, then has to juke to his right to avoid killing Dwight Smith. The runner at first had gone halfway and then sprinted back to first when Shawon caught the pop-up. Shawon avoided Dwight, wheeled around and threw a strike to Grace at first and doubled the guy off to win the game. The throw was at least 250 and it was perfect. I still remember Smith tackling Dunston in left field as the rest of the team sprinted out to pile on him. You'd have tought they just won the pennant.
2) Shawon beat up teammate Marvelle Wynne on the field before a game in St. Louis. Marvelle went on the DL, Shawon played that day.
3) Every time he flailed at a bad pitch and actually hit it, he tore down the first base line like his house was on fire. You have to respect that.

It was good to see Shawon again last night. And in a couple years he'll be back in the Cubs dugout as a coach. You can book it.
