30 for 30: Doc & Darryl

Well, that was awesome.

I already knew a lot of the stories because I read The Bad Guys Won and Straw: Finding my Way, but it was still a good film by Jud Apatow.

Obviously, I remain awestruck by these guys talents. The best of them both was gone by the time I was old enough to realize they were stars. I wish I could have been of age in the early 80’s to watch them, because without a doubt I would be recapping what they did on a nightly basis like I do the young stars of current.

It was just a much different time and place back then; the world and the game of baseball. Social media didn’t announce every moment and every presence.

It’s been said many times before that Strawberry and Gooden flamed out well before their times and well short of what they should have been. But what it must have been like to watch them when they were within their greatness and at their height.

The game will never see another like these two as long as it goes on.
