    Pedro Martinez, and it would feel wrong to even mention any other names in his company.

    My guys are Art Long (just an epically questionable dude), Kent Mercker, and Sam Perkins.
    Andy Van Slyke.

    I traded my 1986 Pete Rose 1b-Mgr card for him because I simply liked the name for some reason.

    Terry Mulholland. I'd forget about him and then, at some point, he'd show up in some random game, pitching for some random team.

    Last time was late in the season coming out of the pen for the Twins at 42.

    This reminds me that I saw Kent Mercker driving home to Columbus after hurting himself a few years ago. I remember hearing about the injury and then I saw him going home. It was just weird.
