This guy was a pretty tough middle reliever with the Pirates in their early '90s heyday. Was already washed up by the time he arrived in Flushing.

He must have been tormented as a kid with a name like "Blas." As far as his pitching goes, didn't he usually enter the game when it was out of reach for one team or the other?

Along with Rikkert Faneyte (outfielder for San Fran) one of my friend Jeremy Frank's favorite big league names. Considering that he struck out nearly a batter an inning, walked very few hitters, and had ERA's in the mid-threes, it kind of makes you think that maybe Blas didn't quite suck as much as we think he did.

I met Blas Minor when I was 10 years old and I was autograph hunting at a Mets-Phillies game at the Vet. He struck me as a really down to earth guy at a time when a lot of the other players wouldn't sign for me. He signed my baseball with a bible verse and we talked for a minute or two. I don't really remember much that he did on the field, but looking at his stats, it looked as though he had a couple decent seasons in NY.

Blas Minor was not an all-star, but he brought more to the table than bullpen mates Doug Henry, Jerry DiPoto and Derek Wallace in 1996, not to mention the parade of of bad relievers who succeeded him in '97 (Ricardo Jordan, Toby Borland, Yorkis Perez, et al). Minor gave up fewer hits than IP and had a 3K to 1BB ratio, so why dispatch him to Seattle?
