    Sure would have like to have seen this pitching matchup. Two of the best pitchers of 70's, in their prime, going against each other.

    Wow. Swept by the expansion Colt .45's.

    Houston actually finished ahead of the Cubs (and woeful Mets) that year. Those bottom 3 teams were beat like a drum all year.

    Did SF and LA do some kind of best of 3 playoff?

    Yep. They finished the season tied after LA blew a 4 game lead with 7 games left.

    SF won game 3 of the playoff 6-4 after scoring 4 in the 9th.

    Giants went on to lose a 7 game heartbreaker WS to the Yankees.

    Perhaps McCovey's best-known moment in baseball came in the bottom of the 9th of Game 7, with 2 outs and the Giants trailing 1-0. With Willie Mays on second base and Matty Alou on third, any base hit would likely have won the championship for the Giants. McCovey scorched a hard line drive that was snared by the Yankees' second baseman Bobby Richardson, ending the series with a Yankees' win. That would turn out to be the closest McCovey would get to playing on a world championship team.

    Over two months later, the December 22 episode of Peanuts depicted Charlie Brown brooding silently for three panels, before finally erupting, "Why couldn't McCovey have hit the ball just three feet higher?"

    If the Reds took that doubleheader - that would have gotten them close.

    There were two or three losses in '62 that were bad.

    It's amazing that 5 games out 162 can cause that much stomach-turning.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    No homers by either team in the '67 double header.
    The Astrodome was the anti-GABP.
