BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Val Pascucci went seven years between big-league stints, and the Mets re-signed him to mash at Triple-A. It's what he does.
2009 Val Pascucci has a career 928 OPS in 1,777 Triple-A at-bats and 174 career minor league home runs, yet he's gotten all of 74 major league PAs for his trouble. He played in Japan from 2005-06, and that might be the only place where he's fully appreciated.
2005 When even the most interesting of the Expos prospects flailed around miserably in their call-up, it got sad. Watching the minor leagues this year was like the Peanuts Halloween special, when they go trick-or-treating, with the Expos as Charlie Brown. What came out of your farm system this year, guys?
Pirates: I got Rookie of the Year Jason Bay, who the Expos traded in 2002.
Padres: I have a defensive whiz of a shortstop!
Dodgers: I have five pieces of candy!
Expos: I got a rock.

Early Peanuts was so bleak, sad, and depressing it was funny. Being an Expos fan must have been like that, so awful you had to laugh to keep from crying. Pascucci was sold to Japan to finance Bowden's $8,000-a-day veteran habit. He could help a major league team if he's back a year from now.
