As WOY's history shows, these three had great potential and threw way too many pitches when they were very young. I think there is a valuable lesson in these three that is not lost on Mr. Krivsky.
Yep. I sometimes imagine the BRM from 1972 through 1976 with healthy versions of Nolan, Gullett and Simpson anchoring the staff--how's five straight World Championships sound?
Great article, as usual, WOY.
