He looked good, didn’t he? Not sure why he didn’t make it.

Petagine’s wife Olga is 58, and he’s 34. He met her when he was playing in the Venezuela winter leagues. She was the mother of one of his friends. He went over to their house for dinner one night and fell in love with his friend’s mom.

I was just getting into prospecting when this guy was coming up, and I was sure he’d be the next big star. He was smoothly cruising up through the minors, he was improving at every level, he was young, and he was the cousin of Kevin Mitchell. He had it all going for him.

Unfortunately, a new analysis of his numbers reveals that he wasn’t anything special.

Update

Keith became a career minor leaguer and tailed off big time. Shame.
