haha okay... I'll take that explanation.
Pat was one of Clarke's many 'Project' players... one of those 'cannot miss' 'next ones' that fall flat on their cans right out of the gate. With Clarke those resurrection projects were like my wife and shoes... can't be passed up, and can't have too many of them. If Clarke would have only hit on one of them... one player that other teams mishandled and found their Juniors magic in O&B... just one, I would have been happy (and I loved Clarke, BTW).
Seems Homer learned to take gambles on resurrecting careers from Clarke (Emery, Zherdev, Leighten, etc.)... If we can count Leino in that group, the long wait may finally be over.
