BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 The Mets called Gonzalez up in May after three-fifths of their rotation hit the DL simultaneously. That`s what it takes for Gonzalez to get a shot these days; he sits in a cabinet wearing a sign that says, `break glass in case of abject desperation.` He didn`t pitch well, and the Mets moved on to younger hurlers. Sent to Milwaukee for Mike Adams, he found his strikeouts in Dairyland and kept a few more balls in the yard. His arm was ruined by a UCL injury back in 1998, so his best use is as someone who gives you four weeks of emergency work, which is what he`ll hope to do for the Blue Jays, who invited him to camp. Too bad Howard Cosell is no longer alive and doing Monday Night Baseball broadcasts; if he were, we might get to hear him describe the pitching of `Gair-uh-mee` Gonzalez, much as he once called games featuring another Blue Jay who couldn`t decide how to spell his name, `Yor-gee` Bell.
2005 Fortune smiled on Gonzalez for a while in 2003, giving him a chance to actually pitch like he was capable of pitching without having surgery. He never threw well in 2004, at least not in Tampa; Gonzalez missed some time to go to Venezuela to finalize a divorce, which might have had something to do with his awful performances. The Rays cut him loose in December, and he'll probably wangle a spring invitation from someone.
