June 1, 2004 I was personally there by his side when he got the call from Toronto. He was old school baseball, loved the game and was good at it! (My opinion counts for something...my dad pitched and played with Willie Mays in 1956.) Sadly to say, baseball is too much of a business today and too many "fans" voice their opinions on the wrong issues. Too bad that stats don't show the heart and love of the game. He's a great guy.
February 23, 2009 Watched a replay today of Nolan Ryan's 7th no-hitter on MLB network. It was against the Blue Jays. Jimmy Key started for the Jays and MacDonald relieved him. He had just been called up from AAA. He looked like he had real good stuff. I was intrigued and want looking for him on mlb.com. To my surprise he pitched for the Mets in 96. I do not remember that at all. It's probably more my fault than his. If anyone knows what happened to him and why he missed 94 I would like to know. Best of luck Rob.
