It wasn't the cocaine trial; it was the cocaine and jelly donuts that has kept Parker out.
Also played second base (for the only time in his career) during a 14-inning game that saw Terry Forster play RF.
He had a better peak and a better late bounce than Jim Rice, for example.
Did he? Or maybe it just seems that way because Parker was rebounding from a lower baseline. Rice had two WAR seasons north of 5 after the age of 30, Parker none. Rice also had the highest single season WAR of the two - 7.6.
He began his major league career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, taking over right field after the death of Pirates’ legend Roberto Clemente.
He had a very good career, with an excellent peak
“It was frustrating because I know I was a great player. I knew I had my thumbprint on the game and I think it was all because of that 1985 drug trial that set me back with writers and possibly the general public,” Parker said. But baseball is supposed to be so forgiving and this is a forgiving country why didn’t they forgive me.”
5-yeah. He basically had the Strawberry career.
I wonder if this happens more to outfielders than to infielders.
