What do we remember about Pat Hentgen’s run as a right-handed pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays? Oh, maybe that 1996 season when he won 20 games and had 10 complete games on his way to a Cy Young Award. That was pretty much the end, though. He’d eventually make $37,000,000 over a 14-year career and then buy a house in Tarpon Springs, Fla. with one of the most worthless theater rooms we’ve ever seen. Pat, seriously, $2mm for that garbage?
And what’s up with the film photos uploaded for the listing? No idea. Maybe Hentgen doesn’t roll with a digital camera. Still old school? ‘Stache and film cameras?
Don’t even get us started on that state-of-the-art theater room. Here we thought Cory Maggette’s room was ******** with its Batman theme. At least he has a theme. True, those pics are from 2004, but still.
