What’s Rob Reading?

Vida Blue on Time Magazine, 1971“Vida Blue, 1971”
By Mark Armour, SABR Baseball Cards Blog

“It has often been said, in the sense that I have often said it, that there is nothing more enjoyable for a baseball fan than the emergence of a great young starting pitcher. Depending on how old you are, you might recall 1984 Dwight Gooden, or 1981 Fernando Valenzuela, or 1976 Mark Fidrych. It has become much less common of late, because young starters are generally not allowed to pitch a lot of innings. For me, 1971 is the year, and Vida Blue is the pitcher.”
