From Bill James Online:â†µ
mekl77: Bill—I remember an article by Rob Neyer saying that Clint Courtney, a 1950's catcher, had Mackey Sasser disease before Sasser and before Steve Blass disease. Said Dale Murphy had it too.â†µ
Bill James: Clint Courtney, hell; I remember in my youth Barney Gilligan had this problem. Top that one, Neyer.â†µ
Steve Blass disease affects 1 out of every 37 Americans. Get the facts. And don't be afraid to ask for help. You're not alone.
