Rafael Palmiero

.. talking about a comeback at 53.  

One quote I thought was interesting...

“Maybe 12 years later, if I can come back and prove I don’t need anything as an older player with an older body, then people might think, OK, maybe he didn’t do anything intentionally,"

Rafael - Good luck with that.    You were a talent 30 years ago, almost Hall of Fame.  But those years have passed and so did your opportunity to earn an honest living.   Go back to retirement.


Clearly HOF.  A no doubter based on his stats and career.  And good enough to be first ballot, even.  Well, you know, without the steroids.

But the most painful part of your post is the "30 years ago".  How did it go by so quick?

A couple years ago, I watched this special ("Thunder and Lightning") about Rafael Palmiero and Will Clark at Mississippi State.  This was my generation.   I remember these guys and the College World Series.   Even though I played college tennis I was a huge baseball fan.   This is a great story, and you can see all the talent & different temperments these guys had.   Check it out.
