#20T Tom Brunansky



IMPACT FACTOR 5/10: Brunansky was a good value for the Cardinals. They gave up Tom Herr, who was past his prime, to acquire him. He hit well for a couple of years, and then they flipped him to Boston for Lee Smith, who damn near won a Cy Young award as a reliever with the Cards.

This card makes me sad. Tommy f$%@ing Herr.

The Brunansky for Smith trade broke my heart as a Red Sox and Lee Smith fan. And my heart stayed broken until late in the 1990 season when Bru made a once-in-a-lifetime catch down the right field line in Fenway Park that helped them make the play-offs.
