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!!!).
Heard this on the radio this morning and the other thread on Griffey Jr. made me think of it. Griffey Jr. made the All-Century team (Barry Bonds did not) and Junior was named the Player of the Decade for the 1990s, which you can't argue to much.
