And Bruce wasn't here for all of that either, was he? He didn't come up until later. Bruce also got lots of starts over vets Patterson & Freel too. He would also sit Junior down after 2 or 3 ab's and swap Bruce over to Right in place of Junior. Hardly vet favoritism.
My point is that I didn't see the kids sitting on the bench while the vets played...just because they were vets. That's what was always said about Dusty's tendencies.
