Re: Who is Larry Starr talking about?
Wade Rowdon, anyone?
As someone pointed out to me in a private message, he made his Reds' debut in 1984.
I don't think it was Eric Davis. First of all, he wouldn't have been considered a "light-hitting prospect." Second of all, since he was skinnier than the Olson twins, I just don't see steroids with him. Starr said this guy went from about 169 pounds to 195 in the offseason. Davis didn't weigh 195 soaking wet in 1984.
But Wade Rowdon, very interesting. I still think Tracy might be a possibility. When did he first come up to the bigs?
