Let’s Talk About Billy McCool

Last month, NotGraphs lost a piece of magic as Billy McCool, left-handed pitcher and actual person, passed away. Let us take a moment to adore the man, the lefty, the only fella who could make your grandfather’s socks as cool as cubed cumbers — Billy McCool.

Thanks to Paul Agnello for consummating Fate, for bringing the world’s inevitable route to NotGraphs’ front door, for telling us about Billy McCool.

This isn’t directed at you, Mr. Woodrum, but I feel NotGraphs has dropped the ball recently. So, my question is, when did the Phillies front office start running NotGraphs?

I think the first sign that the Phillies front office isn’t running NotGraphs is the very fact that NotGraphs knows what the internet is.

Damn when I linked him to y’all I didn’t know he passed. Let us pour one out for Billy McCool whilst wearing our finest argyle and most pixelated shades.
