#37@JMAR: Yeah, if he only had a little more plate discipline, but it seems unlikely to develop much more at this point.
#38@Kevin: Cheers. Enjoyed “talking” with you this afternoon!
#44@David Coonce: Wow! I never even realized Gossage played for LaRussa, but sure enough in 92 nad 93 he did.
Yeah, he hung around there for a while at the end, oddly enough as just a middle-reliever. It seems that now closers end their careers as closers, no matter how ineffective (See Borowski, Joe). Very seldom does a closer switch back to middle-relief late in his career, but Gossage did it.
