Journeyman for later half
Hitless for Red Sox
|1988 Donruss #194 Gary Gaetti|
I don't like Gary Gaetti. It's probably unjustified, and after almost 20 years I'm sure I'm (to quote Roger Clemens) "misremembering" things. The last moments of Gaetti's career were spent as a member of the Red Sox. The Red Sox signed him April 2, just a few days before the season began. 5 games and 10 days later he was done. His April retirement left a bad taste in my mouth. Why sign in the first place? It just seemed like a jerk move to me, and I wish I knew who lost that last roster spot because of him. Again, I don't have any of the facts. He had his reasons, and it's not like the team was worse off because of it. I just never believed in quitting that soon without good reason.
