"In the history books, Bob Watson is a lion, a great player who went on to be a championship executive and a pioneer in the league office. To me, he was the guy who replaced my childhood favorite, took the job of the GM who’d saved my team, and orchestrated a trade that ended the career of my all-time favorite player."
