|1987 Topps #PR4|
My Phillies scrapbooks from the mid-'80s and early-'90s suffered the same fate. I'd have a few pages detailing the Postseason and then there would be a large gap in time between the naming of the league's MVPs and the date when pitchers and catchers reported to Clearwater. (The one exception being the 1991 off-season, when I painfully chronicled the courting of and ultimate rejection by free agent Bobby Bonilla.)
And the slow off-season continues.
24 Years Later: Little did I know as I clipped out the pictures of Easler and Charles Hudson back on 12th Street in 1986 that my first son, Doug, would be born exactly 24 years after this trade was made. That event has worked out much, much better than the Easler trade. No contest.
