October 10, 2004 A few weeks ago I saw an odd slop-throwing lefty silhouette on my screen. I then took a closer look at the unusual number of letters on the back of the uniform. I hadn't actually seen Vic in person before, only his name in Marlins box scores.
OK, I've seen enough. Now who's next to give another chance to a southpaw who can still faintly fog up a mirror?
October 10, 2004 It is amusing to watch Darensbourg pitch for one reason: He is about 5'9", built small and his last name is so long that the letters simply do not fit across the back of his jersey. The 'D' and the 'G' have disappeared under the man's armpits. Amusing sight. Was like that when he was on the Marlins as well.
October 18, 2004 If there's a worse lefty reliever than Franco it's this guy. The guy threw batting practice everytime he pitched. Too ugly for words when he came in.
October 20, 2004 I used to get really excited when the Marlins used to bring him into the game, I knew the Mets hitters would crush him, so of course they end up getting this useless piece of trash. What a waste of material giving him a uniform. Obtaining him is a typical Mets move.
May 24, 2006 Had the pleasure of seeing Vic pitch for the IL Champ Mud Hens last season. Went practically the whole year without giving up a run until he was called up by the Tigers.
