Re(2): Alberdi

Alberdi was a rare talent and I think under-acknowledged historically:
- excellent catcher from both sides
- sneaky, accurate and consistent kill shots both sides with a world-class costado
- great reverse rebote/ very good right rebote
- Decent power with great court smarts/ placement
- good speed and great positioning
- consistent,clutch and always tried
He literally had all of the tools except for big power

Remen was a great for his power, speed, athleticism and fearless play. I was so impressed with his ability to make a huge mistake and quickly shake it off and smoke his opponents. He was so "hungry" to win nearly all the time. His power befuddles me to this day. I know he had strong legs/ core, and a great "wristy" postura, but it seemed to defy physics that he could throw wall to wall right sides at 170 pounds or whatever he was. He reverse were also bullets. With Gioco, Egurbi, Juaristi Asis etc, it is easy to see where the power comes from.

The roster was so stacked in those days that a good show was guaranteed
