June 22, 2001 I know Seaver had a really poor 1982 season, but even today its hard to believe that all it took was Puleo and two minor leaguers to get him back. Puleo was one of our better pitchers in 1982. Lloyd McClendon, of course, is now the Pirates manager.
June 2, 2004 As flushing flash said, Puleo was one of the few good pitchers that the Mets had in 1982. It was because of Rick Cerone, whom I believe he was a teammate of at Seton Hall, that he played in the majors. I don't know which club Cerone recommended him to. The only time I saw him make an error was in the first game of the July 4th doubleheader in 1982. The Phils had a runner on first base. Puleo turned and threw the ball to pick the runner off. However, Dave Kingman was playing off the bag and the ball went over the first base line allowing the runner to advance. Charlie was traded to the Reds and later, I assume because of Joe Torre's presence, went to the Braves. Anyone know what he's up to these days?
October 4, 2004 Had to get a haircut when he was traded to the Reds.
April 1, 2006 Somebody asked - what is Puleo doing now? He's a pitching coach in Tennessee. Has two kids - one of whom is a basketball player tearing up the league.
August 28, 2007 Since retirement from baseball in 1990, Puleo has been a minor league pitching coach for the Orioles. After that he has been coaching baseball at William Blount High School in Maryville, TN. He just gave up coaching this year [170-105 in his 8 years]. He has 2 daughters, Meredith and Angela. Angela is going to the University of Georgia to play basketball.
