The (Should Be) Forgotten:
Andrew Heaney, Texas Rangers
In a familiar scene for Yankees fans, Heaney almost threw away a World Series berth for Texas all by his lonesome in Game 4 of the ALCS.
Entrusted to keep the Astros at bay with a 2-1 series lead, Heaney instead retired just two batters, allowed four hits, a walk, and three runs, and gave Houston a golden opportunity to rear back, breathe fire, and rejoin the series.
Somehow, some way, the Rangers found two additional wins on the road to send Houston home for the winter and Dusty Baker into retirement, but the embattled Yankees lefty with the high-spin fastball that just ... doesn't work that well nearly wore goat horns in this seven-gamer.
The Rangers' rotation, which was supposed to be fronted by Jacob deGrom, has been decimated to an historic degree. That means Heaney will likely get a World Series start, piggybacked by Dane Dunning, in a development absolutely nobody is excited for.
