Yeah, major meltdown. It was tough to watch, no matter what team you rooted for.

An even worse meltdown was Rick Ankiel. He went from great pitcher to not even being able to throw the ball anywhere near the catcher. It was all mental. The pressure of the big leagues made him into a headcase. He gave up pitching and came back with the Cards as an outfielder a few years later and still plays there.

The left-hander made it to the major leagues at age 19 and was 11-7 with a 3.50 ERA with 194 strikeouts in 175 innings in 2000 but developed record-setting wildness in the playoffs. In the postseason opener against Atlanta, he became the first major league pitcher since 1890 to throw five wild pitches in one inning and had nine wild pitches in four innings during the postseason.
He went 1-2 with a 7.13 ERA in six starts for the Cardinals in 2001, walking 25 in 24 innings, then was sent to the minors.

Anyone remember Mackey Sasser, catcher for the Mets back in the late 80s/early 90s? He went through that mental block too, couldn't get the throw back to the pitcher.

Yep. I remember him only because of his cool name though.

Remember that kid Joe Crisp? His posts on this board were coherent, on the money, made you think. Suddenly he starts going off topic, rambling about all sorts of things, spelling errors here, typos there. What a fall from grace.

It's better to burn out than fade away I guess.

Re: Skins sign kicker Shaun Suisham

Boswell's article today is cursing us out for not going after Vandy:

Thomas Boswell - Who You Calling An Idiot? - washingtonpost.com

Personally I agree and think we should give Vandy a shot. What do we have to lose? He could be a huge steal and if not we cut him. It's not like we're averse to deadcap.

PS - I also think we should bring back JoeCrisp. I think he's still got something left in the tank.

I agree with the article. We should have at least met with the guy. Maybe a change of scenery would do Vandy good and help him get over the shanks.

Yeah, it was sad. I hear he is doing pornos in Vegas and working on a new stage act called "The Aristocrats".

I really dont' think Vandy is healthy. I heard a report that he's thinking about returning to Canada, and not kicking anymore this year. Maybe if our kicking game does not improve over the next five games, and no one claims him before we get the opportunity, we'll consider signing him for next season. I still think he can be an effective kucker once he's healthy again.
