That's actually true. Mazzilli was always given the nickname "Mazz" in print.
Anyway, I always liked Lee, and though I'm sorry to see him go, I wish him luck in Baltimore.
Everytime I see Lee Mazzilli's name in print, it reminds me that the Rangers traded Ron Darling and Walt Terrell for him. That might have been worse than the Harold Baines trade. Geez, no wonder the Rangers never have and probably never will have any pitching (CHAN HO!!!).
As much as I love Charlie Hustle as a player, it's apparent he bet on Baseball and that's the rules. Shoeless Joe had to deal with as did the rest of the Sox and others. If you read the reports, Rose is saying whatever it takes to get in the hall.
