If you're a modern pitcher and you're upset about getting yanked in the 7th inning of an early April start on three days rest, after the last two batters hit line drive at'em balls then maybe you need a time machine to 1978.
Recently something on social media made me look up a woman who I'd been in some classes with at Tech. She'd been either in the running for or won homecoming queen in '89 or '90. I remembered her name because most of my engineering classes had 2-3 women among the 30, 50, 100 students and most of them definitely weren't the homecoming queen.
Shouldn't have done that. The first picture I found was her in a plain dress, some gray in her hair, and clutching a handbag, with her grown kids. Very grandmotherly. It's shocking to see someone looking 55 or 60 when the picture in your mind is of an attractive 19-year-old.

I was going to play conspiracy theorist and wonder if he knew he was having some issues prior to the draft. Took the money knowing he'd potentially need surgery and who knows how he comes back. A lot of talk was that he was unsignable. Yes, I know they reach out to these guys before the draft to see what it would take for them to forego college, but still.
