Ken...didn't see anything at this time...may some day be willing to trade it for a Manning as I would really like to get one..just not ready at this time for that...
for those of you who aren't familiar with Coveleski (as I wasn't when I pulled it)...he is a deceased HOFer who won over 200 games..well..here is what wikipedia says..
Coveleski signed his first professional contract with the minor league Lancaster Red Roses in 1909. He made his major league debut in 1912, with the Philadelphia Athletics, pitching in five games that season. In 1916 he returned to the Majors as a member of the Cleveland Indians and enjoyed a string of very successful seasons. He won over 20 games each season from 1918 until 1921 and was the star of the 1920 World Series, in which he pitched three complete game victories.
Both Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb called Coveleski one of the toughest pitchers either faced. His control was legendary, and it was not unusual for him to pitch a complete game having thrown 95 pitches or less.
Cleveland traded Coveleski to the Washington Senators after a subpar 1924 season in which he posted a 4.04 ERA. Coveleski rebounded to post his final 20 win season the following year. He retired after the 1928 season with the Yankees.
In a 14-year career, he was 216-142, with a 2.89 ERA in 450 games, 385 of them starts. 224 of those, he completed, and 38 for shutouts. He struck out 981 in 3082 innings pitched. He was 3-2 in World Series games started (1920 and 1925).
Baseball statistician Bill James ranked Coveleski 24th among the greatest right-handed pitchers of all time in career value.
I believe he was also involved in a player dying on the field from one of his fastballs.
