#35T Richard Dotson



IMPACT FACTOR 2/10: Dotson's good year were behind him by the time he got to the Yankees, and they gave up Dan Pasqua to get him.

I distinctly remember watching a Yankees game on WPIX in 1989 where Dotson threw a pitch that bounced in the dirt about 2 feet to the right of the plate with a left-handed batter up. Nobody, from the players to the broadcasters, had any reaction, except Tom Seaver, who simply said "Nice pitch, Rich."

While the Sox did get the better end of that deal, Pasqua wasn't exactly a stud for them. He played 7 seasons in Chicago hitting above .260 only once and below .230 4 times.

Long term investment... Salas is the current White Sox bullpen catcher.
