    That was Simpson's last win of the 1970 season, and he never pitched effectively again after that. I wonder if he was hurt in this game?

    This was the 100th game of the year for the 1970 Reds, and they were an incredible 70-30.

    Johnny Bench absolutely wore out Steve Carlton throughout their careers.

    Good memories, Klu!

    There was no indication of any injury on Retrosheet. After pitching seven shutout innings, he left the game with one out in the eighth inning after allowing four runs (three earned). A fifth run (unearned) later scored and was also charged to Simpson. A quick look ahead showed that he made his next scheduled start, so maybe something happened then.

    From a 1981 NYT article: http://www.nytimes.com/1981/07/07/sp...rsistence.html

    And no one even began a major league career more sensationally than Wayne Simpson. At 21 in 1970, pitching for the Cincinnati Reds, Simpson won 10 straight games, 13 of his first 14 decisions, including a one-hitter against the Giants, and he made the National League all-star team.

    A few weeks later, he injured his right arm while throwing a fast ball. The arm would never be the same. For the next nine years, he pitched with mediocre results (36-31 lifetime) for three other major league teams and with several minor league teams, always pitching in pain, taking cortisone shots to reduce the swelling to allow him to play, and being told by doctors that they could see nothing wrong - ''except maybe a strain'' - and told by various team executives that his problems were psychological.

    The manager of the Reds, Sparky Anderson, was quoted in a newspaper at the time as saying, ''Simpson's problem is mental.'' Arm and Shoulder Cramps
    It wasn't mental, it was a rotator cuff tear suffered during his next start on July 31, 1970, that went undiagnosed for years (medical diagnostics were in the dark ages back then). Anything that couldn't be diagnosed was considered "in your head," of course.

    Simpson eventually lost circulation to his right hand, and underwent 4 separate by-pass surgeries to regain circulation in his hand. He still has problems writing and using his right arm at all.

    I had opportunity to ask Johnny Bench, at a fundraiser a few years ago (I did not ask him to sign anything, and he could not have been more cordial and friendly ) who threw the hardest of all Red's pitchers he ever caught. He simply said "Wayne Simpson wore me out."
