The Wheeze Kids

Two neat articles on the 1983 Wheeze Kids in the Daily News today, I guess maybe because it is the 30th anniversary year. One compares them to the current squad because, you know, they’re old. And the other one, written by the legendary Stan Hochman, is more of retrospective. He put a few things in there I did not know about such as Hochman was the one who coined that nickname. And Paul Owens benched Pete Rose for game 1 of the Series. Could you imagine Charlie doing that? Uh, no. Also Hochman describes John Denny as being a bit of a loose cannon, which I did not know about.  I’d like to read more about that. Anyway, read both, they’re good.
