The return of Mark McLemore?
2007-05-24 18:58
by Bob Timmermann

The Astros sent righthanded pitcher Matt Albers to AAA Round Rock and called up lefty Mark McLemore.

Mark McLemore? The longtime utility man is making a comeback as a pitcher? And throwing with a different hand?

No, the former Angel/Indian/Astro/Oriole/Mariner/Ranger/Athletic is Mark Tremell McLemore, while the new Mark McLemore is Mark Steven McLemore.

The new Mark McLemore.

The old Mark McLemore.

The two Mark McLemores will be the second set of unrelated players with the same name to play for the Astros.

There have been two Carlos Hernandezes.

And THREE Dave Roberts. There was:

  1. This guy
  2. This guy
  3. And this guy

Yes, but how many relievers named Rafael who share their surname with a famous slugger? ;)

There is a Dave Roberts playing with the Giants right now. If only he could go to Houston at some point. Four Dave Roberts would be amazing.

The Padres have had three Dave Roberts, but a different combination.

None of the Houston Hernandezes and Roberts were the Los Angeles Dodgers of the same name.

From 1969 to 1978, the Padres had either the first or second Dave Roberts on the roster. After starting the 1972 season without a Dave Roberts, they missed him so badly they drafted a new one and immediately put him in the majors.

The Astros also had Andujar, Cedeno, and Andujar Cedeno.
