The tragedy of Brien Taylor stems from the arm injury; the rest of it just highlights the failure of the war on drugs. As for Perez, I often wondered what he would do next, feeling somewhat disappointed when he pitched well and didn't do anything comical.

Wow, what a shame, and sadness.

Perez was an enormously talented pitcher; he had a live arm and a lot of movement on his pitches. But he had repeated drug problems and injury problems, which basically wiped out his career.

At one time, the Yankees tried to bring him back to the organization, but they literally could not get ahold of him, and they gave up the search.
