Re: Birthdays- 11/6
I remember that season from Candelaria. I wasn't surprised he didn't win it, but I WAS surprised how low he finished. Carlton won that year with Seaver coming in second. That felt right to me as they both had outstanding years. But Rick Ruschel and Tommy John should NOT have been ahead of the Candy man.
I was never a Pirates fan, but I have to admit...he was fun to watch. I've always liked watching sidearms & submariners.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
