Happy Birthday, Ricky Bones!
For some reason, I was thinking that Ricky Bones was a Padre longer than he was. I guess because I had a lot of his cards. Apparently they were all '92s since he only pitched eleven games for San Diego, all starts after debuting August 11, 1991. Before the next season he was sent to the Brewers in the Sheffield trade. He went on to pitch for five additional teams in his eleven year career and is now the Mets' bullpen coach. Anyway, he turned 43 today and this makes me wonder... How many current Major League coaches are younger than Jamie Moyer? Hmmm; I'll get back to you.
