    Good work, Biff. I was mildly concerned when Grilli's birthday passed and no one had yet posted this image.

    2018-19 Off-season Thread

    RIP BIll Fischer. Fischer pitched for the Tigers in 1958 and from 1960-61, going 10-9 with a 4.96 ERA and 5 saves in 68 games, all but 7 of them in relief. Frequently on the move throughout his career, he was originally acquired in a multi-player trade with the White Sox in 1958 before being waived at the end of the season. He was then re-acquired from Washington in exchange for fellow reliever Tom Morgan midway through the 1960 season before again being traded to the Athletics during the 1961 season in a four-player deal. Working after his playing career as a pitching coach (both in the majors and minors) and a scout, Fischer also appeared in the majors with the White Sox, Senators, KC Athletics, and Twins. He died October 30 at the age of 88.
