Happy Reds birthday, Brook Fordyce!


May 7, 1970

Aren’t baseball salaries a funny thing? Brook Fordyce, who never drove in more than 49 runs in a season, saw his salary from the Orioles increase from $825,000 to $2.5 million in 2002, and to $3.5 million in 2003. He was never a particularly fantastic defensive catcher, and couldn’t hit his way out of a paper bag. I should have worked harder at baseball as a kid.
