That makes me sad.

Hoping for the best Rusty.

Anyone else remember his bar on 73rd/74th street? I saw him there a few times. Seemed like a nice guy.

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

My favorite player growing up along with Mookie. Godspeed Rusty.

Nice guy who talked to me as a child in the stands before a game...

When my brother and I played Strat-O-Matic baseball cards in the early 70's, Rusty was the reason we started having trades in our league. One of my faves. I loved the anecdotes from Keith Hernandez's book "If at First" regarding Le Grande Orange.
