It didn't take long for Taylor's recklessness to give him a reputation within the organization. On the field he was known for playing like a man of iron, giving little to no shits about ever sustaining an injury. That same carelessness that was so fun to watch extended to life off the field. During his rookie campaign he was speeding and almost died in a car accident. This caused the Giants to come up with a $2 million policy to morbidly profit off of potential death with GM George Young telling the team's trainer that he'd be "Surprised if he lived past age 30." By our count he's been cheating death for a quarter of a century, and counting. The Game would be proud.
