Scott Bullett. It’s not your fault. Your cool name forced you into the career path you chose. You couldn’t have been “Dr. Bullett” or “Scott Bullett, Esquire.” You could have either been a stripper or a professional athlete. I think you would have looked better in a banana hammock than a Cubs jersey.
Wow. That ball is WAY foul.
Remember in 2003, when Jim Hendry fleeced the Pirates out of Aramis Ramirez and Kenny Lofton? The trade was following a precedent set way back in 1995, when then-Cubs G.M. Ed Lynch fleeced the Pirates out of Bullett. Were the 1995 Cubs really so bad that they found a way to get you 150 at-bats? Or were they bad because they found a way to get you 150 at-bats? It’s the chicken and the egg, Scott. The chicken and the egg.
I’ll give you credit for one thing and one thing only, Bullett. You sure knew how to kick an apple’s ass.
Also, damn you for not reminding me to list you as #111, so you could have been “One One One With A” Bullett.
Low Point: August 23, 1996. Former Cub Greg Maddux shuts down the Cubs through 7 innings, allowing only 2 earned runs. Bullett starts in right field and goes 0-4 with 2 Ks against the future Hall of Famer.
Did You Know? Bullett is smart enough to capitalize on his name, as he has started (seriously) the Bullettproof Baseball School. You win, Scott.
