    87 world series

    I am watching this series on ESPN classic. The Cardinals vs. Twins, Game 7 and the Cards have to have the worst hitting lineup in game 7 history.

    LF Vince Coleman
    SS Ozzie Smith
    2B Tom Herr
    1B Jim Lindeman
    CF Willie McGee
    DH Tony Pena
    RF Jose Oquendo
    3B Tom Lawless
    C Steve Lake

    Definitely a pre-steroid AstroTurf built team. Can anyone think of a less potent lineup in a World Series?

    Wait a minute! Didn't the White Sox have a team in the 50's called the hitless wonders? Maybe they were worse

    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Thought I would do a quick check on this lineups OPS for that season.

    Coleman .721 OPS
    Smith .775
    Herr .677
    Lindeman .639
    McGee .746
    Pena .588
    Oquendo .621
    Lake .635
    Lawless .299 in 25 AB that year

    Cardinal fans couldn't have been too optimistic going into that game.

    I'm assuming these guys were hurt.
    Clark 1.056
    Pendleton .772
