    Unfairly vilified, as Boston's bullpen blew that game before the error. Pour one out Reck

    Little bit before my time but RIP all the same.

    The guy had to live with that one error for the rest of his life and on top of that had to deal with the fans, media all shitting on him too. It's ironic he died from complications stemming from dementia. Damn

    Unfair to die that young especially from Alzheimer's which usually kills people in their 80s and 90s... WTF.

    He didn’t have Alzheimer’s. He had a more aggressive form of Dementia called Lewy Bodies Dementia.

    Schiraldi and John MacNamara; Schiraldi for not holding a two-run lead with one out to go, MacNamara for leaving Billy Buck out there instead of taking him out for Dave Stapleton like he'd done all year in that situation.

    And Bob Stanley for the wild pitch.

    And Donnie Moore (RIP) for not getting the final out of the ALCS and keeping the Red Sox out of the WS to begin with.

    Guy was a snake in the post-game interview. IIRC, said something like "we didn't make key plays tonight."

    Yup. They showed Catching Hell last night on ESPN, and they talked about Bill Buckner and the comparisons to Steve Bartman. They showed him being interviewed, and he basically threw Buckner under the bus instead of at least taking some of the blame.

    I was shocked and sad to see this. I have watched a number of documentaries which he graciously gave interviews, and was humble and honest about everything. He was a hell of a player, and his career never should have been defined by that error in 86..

    Watching Catching Hell I am still trying to figure out how the Red Sox fans all unanimously blamed Buckner in 86, but in 2003 the Cubs idiot fans blamed Bartman a fan, instead of Gonzalez error when he blew a routine DP to end the inning?

    Never struck out 3 times in a game over his career. Pretty amazing. Weirdly, his on-base percentage was low for how good he was at making contact. Different era, though. You wanted to the hit the ball and not strikeout since it was seen as an embarrassing way to get out. Walks also weren't as valued.
