    I know they were one year after expansion - but seriously, that is a horrible lineup. Looking at that, their roster and their pitching staff, I find it remarkable the Mets actually managed to win 51 that season.

    I think this can be best represented with some smilies:

    Weathers was historically horrible in that first short stint.

    Interesting that Nuxhall went in the game in relief. I wonder what the circumstances behind this was?

    Prior to the mid-70's, it was not uncommon for a starting pitcher to occasionally pitch in relief between starts, on his "throwing day". Joe Nuxhall had the best season of his career in 1963, going 15-8 with a career-best 2.61 ERA and a career-high 169 K's in 35 appearances (29 starts and 6 in relief). He threw 217.1 innings (the second-highest total of his career), and sported a 1.07 WHIP. He pitched 14 complete games, including 2 shutouts. He also recorded 2 saves.

    The Crab came along in '84. That was a serious "What were they thinking?" moment.
    I thought it looked like a tic hooked on Fruit Loops.
