The Dirt Dogs El Guapo Chat Transcript

Hi Rich! I was wondering if you paid attention to the Red Sox during the World Series run. You played with a lot of those guys and were only a few years removed from Boston. Did you watch at all, and what were your thoughts?

El Guapo: "I was a little sad because I was there for seven years because I worked hard all those seven years I was there. I deserved something like that. I went through injuries, pulled muscles, hamstring, groin, tendinitis in my arm... I went out there and pitched a couple of times like that... I wanted to be there. I was watching from home and it was so sad because I was not there when it happened."
