WSC Birth Years: Mike MacDougal

Card #45 - Mike MacDougal

Born: March 5, 1977

Sometimes a pitcher runs into a jam. You know it's going to happen before he goes in. You can see it clearly and there's nothing you can do to change it.

Mike fits that description to a tee. MacDougal has fantastic stuff, when it's there. Like the mythical groundhog, it comes out, sees its shadow, and hides for another six weeks. Like the movie, Groundhog Day, Mike seemed to relive the same horrible day each time he stepped on the mound.

MacDougal was released from the White Sox on April 30, 2009. He was picked up by the Nationals and spent the rest of the season there. Mike has a terrific upside, if only he can stay healthy long enough.

I got to meet Mike at one of the Nationals' Meet the Team days last year and he seemed like a nice guy. Awesome picture of him by the way!

I've heard Mike was really nice. I wish he would have worked out the way the Sox hoped he would have.

Be on the look out for a package soon.

this card is phenomenal. It's like Tim Lincecum's motion to the Nth. Very nice.
