The revolving door in RF continues. Gene Locklear gets his shot at it. That was a name I hadn't thought of in a long time.

Honestly, there are quite a few holes in the 1973 lineup--considering they are defending NL Champions, and eventual division champs. RF is, as you say, a revolving door--we have seen Cesar Geronimo, Joe Hague, Richie Scheinblum, and now Gene Locklear. Bobby Tolan was an offensive black hole (think Corey Patterson-esque), and Denis Menke had no offensive skill other than taking walks. Dave Concepcion had a breakthrough first half, but broke his ankle right before the All-Star break, and was lost for the rest of the season. The SS duties therefore fell into the hands of the banjo-hitting Darrel Chaney. It was Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, Tony Perez, and Johnny Bench who made this team go, and even Bench had a subpar year (for him). Midseason callup Dan Driessen helped out, but didn't show much power. Andy Kosco also provided some offensive thump in limited playing time.

Seeing Perez hitting in the six spot and Bench hitting in the seven spot just doesn't look right. Throw in the immortal Fred Whitfield hitting ahead of them and it really doesn't look right!!
