Jeff Pearlman has an article on the Ancient Mariner, Jesse Orosco in the latest issue of Sports Illustrated. Will Orosco, now 45, pitch until he's 50? Uncle Jesse tells Pearlman:
The reason I'm still around is because I feel the ame way I did when I was in Little League, greasing up the mitt before the season. I'm excited for spring training. I love batting practice. The games are thrilling, even if I'm sitting in the bullpen. I'm the little boy who loves baseball. I don't care what my job is.
