  1. Just imagine how many of those 20-win seasons he might have had if he had found that forkball sooner!

  2. I guess he’s the favorite to be the new D-Backs GM. That could be interesting.

  3. I think if he’s picked to be the D-Backs new GM it’ll be in name only because in reality he’ll be an assistant to LaRussa.

    If he would have learned about the forkball earlier he could’ve been another Bob Gibson. Stewart was a great pitcher and super intimidating.
