Brandon Claussen

There's an interesting article in the Cincinnati Enquirer about Brandon Claussen. Claussen was once a top prospect in the Yankees organization. Many fans were angry when he was traded to the Reds for Aaron Boone.

He had one good year with Cincinnati, but never got a big payday. His career ended when he was 28, probably due to injury. He's only 30 now, but has left baseball behind him. He's working for a tire company. He says, "That’s baseball, man. Great life, while it lasts. What most people don’t understand is, for most of us it doesn’t last very long."

Ain't that the truth.
