#91T Dennis Rasmussen



Nice to see that by the time this photo was taken, Rasmussen had given up on trying to grow a decent mustache. Also, can anybody figure out what writing or symbols are visible through his mesh jersey?

IMPACT FACTOR 4/10: Rasmussen was awesome for the Padres in 1988 when he came over mid-season in a trade for Candy Sierra (who was not a stripper, amazingly.) After that, he had two pretty mediocre seasons as a starter and then walked as a free agent.

Wow, what a lopsided trade.

Not really though. I saw the other night that people will go through a lot for candy.

Didn't I see a blog about 1st round draft picks being traded before they reached the majors somewhere on this page? It sounds familiar. Anyway, Rasmussen was a 1st rounder that was traded twice before reaching the majors. And then he was traded a third time after just 13.7 IP in the majors!

I've just downloaded iStripper, and now I can watch the sexiest virtual strippers on my taskbar.
