I’ll tell you right now, Eddie Harris was the glue that held our pitching staff together in 1988.
And he also had all the best lines in Major League.
Watch the video and learn.

We’ve done some nosing around and have found this exclusive first look world premiere scoop of all scoops — the 14 cards pulled at the last second from the 1989 Upper Deck baseball card set. (Including a card of yours truly, Lou Brown.)
You see, Upper Deck had better things to do in 1989 than include a real Star Rookie named Ricky Vaughn in its inaugural baseball card set. (They instead opted for some bum named Ken Griffey Jr. for card No. 1.)
And they made some other last-second changes to the set — opting to not include managers, bench coaches, announcers and even some Major Leaguers in the 700-card first series.
My team was very, very disappointed. However, after 20 years these “missing” cards have been discovered and can only be found here on my blog.

And here’s the scene from inside the locker room:
It goes without saying that some of the greatest lines in Major League come from Harris.

Eddie Harris may have been an old junk-baller, but he got the job done for us against the Yankees and that’s all that matters.
And those damned sportswriters need to lay off on the conspiracies about Crisco, Bardahl, Vagisil, Vaseline and especially jalapenos.
Those were just his endorsement deals, guys. (Well, except Vagisil. I don’t know where they got that from … )
Ol’ Eddie put plenty on the ball — just like Hall of Famer Gaylord Perry.
And it’s his veteran arm and presence in the clubhouse that mattered most.
