Jeremy Guthrie Heading Home

Another Players’ Tribune autobiography.

One night, after another miserable start, a teammate of mine — a close friend who shall remain nameless — sat me down and just put it out there.

“Hey, man,” he said, looking me in the eye, “I hate to say it, but maybe it’s time for you to take it to the house. This just isn’t for you anymore.”

I didn’t really know what to say, so I just kind of looked at him.

He continued, “Maybe you should just retire and pursue something else instead of putting yourself through this any longer.”

One month later, Guthrie still coping with career-ending start

Guthrie took the mound that night at Citizens Bank Park - on his birthday, no less - having achieved his goal of returning to the majors when few thought it possible. And then ...

“For six weeks - I told my wife this - I felt unhittable,” he said. “I’d go out there in those spring games, and I just felt like I could throw the ball where I wanted to, get it to move and get people out. And then in 47 pitches in Philadelphia, I felt like I couldn’t get anybody out. And after that, I was realistic with myself enough to know that was the type of outing that could completely change what had transpired the prior six weeks.”...

“I had a conversation with Mike Rizzo during the game, in the clubhouse, where he was positive and kind,” Guthrie said. “But he didn’t sugarcoat the devastating blow that game meant to my future.”
