Pat was part of Toronto's two World Series victories in 1992 and 1993, and after a decent comeback from Tommy John surgery in 2001, re-joined the Jays for the 2004 season. Unfortunately, he went 2-9 with a 6.95 ERA this season, and he was smart enough to see the writing on the wall.
I was a big fan through his career and I was lucky enough to see him start when I was in Toronto a couple of months back. Pat also was my main inspiration for a certain method of facial hair. I still like to wear "the Hentgen" every now and then.
It was kind of tough watching him get shalacked all over the yard every time out this season. I think he made the right decision... I always thought he was a class act. I actually met him about ten years ago at a Red Lopster. Now there's an intersting story.. or not LoL
smark/net attack wienerville advisory is raised to YELLOW alert - Elevated (JBL is the new WWE champion, good gawd hide under the desk. But Benoit is World Champion allowing some safety in the IWC)- 6/28
Not really, because he was setting up for Randy Myers the two years we made the playoffs. The biggest choke he had here though was a MASSIVE blowup in Game 6 of the '97 ALDS when he gave up a GW-HR 11th-Inning HR to Tony Fernandez.
