2010-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)How should Joe Pepitone's career be remembered?
(TheFlyingBernard from Acton, MA)
He and his detractors would have you recall it for a lack of commitment that resulted in wasted potential, and maybe there's some truth to that, but I think that's overblown. He was a low-average power hitter with no patience--the guy drew 302 walks in 1400 career games, and nearly a quarter of them were intentional. How much potential was really wasted? He was Mike Jacobs with a better glove. (Steven Goldman)
