2002 Overall, power pitchers have longer careers than soft tossers because they can adjust the way they work to cover for a drop in velocity. Junk-baller Telford's career was approaching its expiration date even before he had arthroscopic shoulder surgery at the end of 2000. Telford had absolutely nothing when he returned last spring, his fastball topping out in the low 80s. Four months in single-decked stadiums only verified that heís done.
2001 Anthony Telford is of the more unlikely beneficiaries of the five multi-year contracts handed out to pitchers just after Loria and Samson rode into town. He has been a junk-balling middle man for four years, and where else but Montreal would he be under contract for two more? Is there somebody whoís going to stand up and say, Iím in my thirties, and itís great to be an "Expo"? He had his shoulder íscoped at the end of September and is expected to be fine for 2001.
2000 Exhibit A in Alouís case for how you can create a major-league reliever by putting a piece of meat in a covered jar and waiting two weeks. Presto! Jerky and journeyman! Telford was worn out by September, which means that sometimes even Alou makes a mistake with his bullpen. Heís a thoroughly acceptable middle reliever when used correctly, not being jerked in and out of situational roles.
1999 From despair to where? Felipe's bullpen of magic beans, apparently. Telford toiled in the minors for about ten years, racking up just 70.1 major-league innings in that time with Baltimore. Now, despite mediocre minor-league numbers, Telford has put up two solid seasons as a regular right-handed setup man, thus addiing to Felipe's reputation for taking beer vendors and getting good relief innings out of them.
1998 Telford looked like a pitcher with a future in the early í90s with Baltimore, but nothing came of it and he toiled for years in the minors. Came up to Montreal for his first full season of work and pitched pretty well. This kind of story is told so many times about Exposí pitchers that you almost get tired of noting Felipe Alouís successes. But someoneís gotta get the credit; my vote goes to Alou.
1996  Journeyman AAA pitcher.
