Dustin Richardson was on the PawSox.
Although I have no real, lasting memories of the lad, I did do an entire post about him and said things like, "If Richardson walked into a bar with Tommy Hottovy, only I would know who they were and be able to tell them apart" and "Dustin Richardson's been called up? A lefty? Can we throw Hunter Jones in the Trashco brand trash receptacle now?"
Let's see what some of the kool kidz are saying!
1. HEADLINE: "DUSTIN RICHARDSON DOES HIS BEST BILL O'REILLY IMPERSONATION" - Chad Moriyama
2. "You know why America hasn’t reached Mars yet? Because man hasn’t pushed the limits of human endurance yet. Sure, maybe Dustin Richardson is a hero, or maybe, just maybe, he’s a true American hero." - Old Time Family Baseball
3. Come on, guys! I needed more than two interesting points of view!
I do find it wicked funny that Richardson's MOM talked to the Big Grey Paper. I mean, I would have died, and this is coming from someone whose mother did something very similar.
Anyway, I totally knew that guy was on something when he was in Pawtucket. What sober person gets their last name tattooed on their back in Red Sox font?
