Over seven seasons in the Yankee scrub lands, Venditte rose to Scranton, but never received so much as a courtesy cup of coffee. The Yankee "baseball people" - experts of the radar gun - detected flaws in his pitches, so he never got a call.
Fine. OK. No problem.
Surely, we accept that the Yankee "baseball people" knew what they were doing, by denying their fans so much as a glimpse of the lone switch-pitcher of his or any generation.
Thanks to the Yankee "baseball people," if we ever see Pat Venditte pitch, he will wear an A's uniform.
Just know this: If Venditte turns into a Major League star, there will be trouble.
That's all I'm going to say.
