Mel was a fine reliever for seven years, and then something happened. Almost as fast as lightning, he was done. He went through five different organizations in his last three years, and got shelled a little bit harder at every stop. It's too bad; those first seven years were really pretty good. He's shown here on a 1995 Score card; ten more are shown below.
