Especially since I wasn’t around back then. Here’s a great picture of Koufax congratulating Clayton Kershaw last week.

He was a designated hitter, for crying out loud!!! Hell, he probably didn’t toe the company line and chant “Twins Way, Twins Way” every morning. And the same GM who released him in December 2002 is at the helm now, and may also try to micro-manage Sano and Buxton, to the point of messing with their natural swings.
