He spent six years in the majors, including the first four with the Angels, from 2000 to 2003.

I couldn't stand him as a player, because Fullmer was obviously better and they rarely played them both at the same time.

Looking at Fullmer's numbers in 2002, it's crazy to think of a guy they brought in on a one year deal, basically being a part time player (he started 94 games at DH and 27 at 1B in 2002, and then 41 and 19 in 2003 due to injuries) and he was putting up an .887 and .888 OPS.

LOL, that type of part time production now would be amazing.

Hope he's a better coach than he was a player.

Yeah...amazing...until you get tested and suspended. Something tells me at least Woot was doing what he was doing, without chemical assistance.

Having a career .711 OPS? There is no evidence that either player had chemical assistance, without a failed test.
