    Oh, the stories these two could tell…and they did. If you’ve never read Balls and The Bronx Zoo, or haven’t read them in a while, think about checking them out.

      Nettles book was good, but it pales in comparison to Sparky’s.

      I still take The Bronx Zoo out now and then for a good laugh. Sparky had that George Carlin-esque derisive profane wit that came through in the book.

      Putting aside the fact that Sparky had been pushed out of his closer role by Goose, it’s a bit ironic in retrospect how times changed that Sparky felt insulted by being a “long man”, because these days, they’re “setup men” who are in constant demand and an important part of every team.
