    He was one of my favorite players from the Astros.

    We all know he is from Canada, and looking at an article rating top 10 players from Canada, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Cuba and Dominican Republic.

    They have Puhl as number 10. It says "Stats: 15 years, .280, 62 HR, 435 RBI, 217 SB, .737 OPS

    Puhl, from Melville, Sashatchewan, was a solid outfielder for more than a decade with the Astros. He was an All-Star in 1978 and hit .526 in the 1980 National League Championship Series against the Phillies."

    I did not remember he finished his career in KC.

    By the way, number 1 from Canada is Ferguson Jenkins and number 2 Larry Walker.

    Why does it always have to come down to nationality or race

    Why not let baseball players be baseball players regardless of their background

    Your racism is disturbing

    He was my dad's favorite Astro. I was a Thon-then-Davis man myself.

    Ok, you are a racist

    And a LIAR

    You said you put me on the ignore list, or actually you said you put me "in" it but whatever

    If you had me on ignore, you couldn't have read what I said

    So call me mean if you makes you feel like a man or whatever

    But quit with the race stuff, and liars are the lowest level of human bro, not a good look

    I was a Billy Doran Astro buddy. He once brought in a 7-11 slurpee machine for our group and all of the other groups were jealous. Now he'd get blamed for making us fat and be taxed.

    Neither of which are Astros

    Although apparently Delgado should have been our manager

    What i remember from Puhl was a very good outfielder, with a strong and accurate arm with no wasted motions either hitter or playing defense. He was really good.

    There is also another top 10 Astros from another country, Omar Moreno, number 10 with Panama.
