Happy Birthday Andy Sisco!

New, 44 comments

Wow, Andy Sisco is still just 29 years old. I had anticipated seeing that he was 35 and feeling quite depressed about that, but nay, he's much younger. Which is also depressing in its own way.

Sisco was the random find of an unloved GM, so there wasn't much of a narrative around his out of nowhere success. Other than the fact that bad teams can take chances on live arms. In the end, he's another reminder of what live arms truly are and, often, what they are not. But no worries, we have the Best Farm System Ever, so our bullpen-first strategy will work out.

As you can see in his big stats bomb after the jump, Sisco is still around, trying to pitch (which I also didn't know). Mostly, he's just one of many of us trying to get back to the way things were in 2005.
