  • Regularly tried to coerce attractive women in the stands into lifting up their shirts from the Toronto Blue Jays' bullpen ...
  • Endured huge, cortisone-loaded hypodermic shots straight into the spine to avoid missing scheduled pitching starts ...
  • Was the 1998 ALCS MVP and the 2002 ALDS goat ...
  • Has become legendary for his brawling, beer-drenched, no-holds-barred or punches-pulled lifestyle off the mound ...


Praise For Perfect I'm Not

“Pure locker-room trash talk, jock-jokey and fun.…A rags-to-pinstripes tale of America’s game.”
-Kirkus Reviews
