I'm not sure why I'm such a random fan of crafty lefties.  But, here we are.  Kirk Rueter and me.  He was always a winner.  How or why?  Who knows?  But he pitched and won some awfully big games for the Giants.  All throughout his career he was the best fielding pitcher in baseball, no matter what the Gold Gloves on Greg Maddux's mantle might have to say.  His stats were underwhelming, he wasn't exciting to watch, but Rueter was a total pro.
