BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 LaRocca had another good year in Buffalo. Heís an average defender at third, and if the team didnít have a logjam of large contracts at the major league level, heíd be perfect to fill the hole just left by Fryman. This off-season will bring a third ear surgery for LaRocca, the result of having punctured his eardrum with a Q-Tip way back when. Let this be a lesson to us all: do not insert in ear canal, just like the box says. A minor league free agent, LaRocca went to the AFL for no apparent reason as an Indian, which would seem to indicate heís still affiliated with the team.
2001 He has less chance at a career than Kato Kaelin, really, but it was nice to see organizational soldier Greg LaRocca get a cup of coffee last year. Heís re-signed for 2001. Where heís going to play is an open question; heís most comfortable at third base, but the Padres have three better options there, so heíll probably move around a lot.
1997 A converted shortstop who struggled to get over the AA wall but didnít fall back. The prospects ahead of him arenít exactly Knoblauch and Alomar, but the Veras trade hurts him. Very little chance of a career.
