He gambled and lost with style (or rather without it.)
Ahhh - awesomeness. Every once in a while I miss the 70's. Then I remember that it was the decade when mimes had their own prime time tv show and I get over it.
Wow, a Shields and Yarnell reference! My goodness, the 70s were strange!
Oh, and lest we forget, Ken Landrieaux and Pedro Geurerro left the Twins because we had outdoor baseball.Short memories, long lessons. Go publicly funded pork for corporate weasels!
When Oscar played LF for the White Sox, opposing players would routinely run from 1st to 3rd on singles to LF, his arm was THAT bad.
That's true, P. Gamble had an abysmal arm. The one guy I remember who was worse was Greg Luzinski, although Don Baylor was bad, too. All those guys played at the wrong time - in the 1990s their, ahem, talents would have been less of an issue. There were a lot of big ballparks in the 70s.Rich, you're right - Bake McBride was definitely a contender. The king of the 70s 'fros was probably Darnell Hillman, who played for the Indiana Pacers. I'll have to find a picture of him, too.
