    Hi Goose - I didn't get it from Nate himself.I won it on ebay. He was their big gun from 1969-73'. He dropped to 14 homers and .207 in 1974 and only got worse afterwards. How does that happen?

    I knew I'd might have a tough time getting that one by you JG . I wonder if his problems had anything to do with a thing called the curve ball

    I'll bet it had alot to do with it!

    Here's one:

    Diego Segui led the pitching staff with 66 appearances. Who was second with 57?

    Let me see. On guess I would say it had to be Bob Locker.

    Just saw this thread.. How about Pattin? I think the following season he threw something like a 12 hit shutout?

    What if the Pilots had never made a trade? I'm doing this off the top of my head but they could have had a rotation in the early 70's of
    Pattin
    Lockwood
    Segui
    Parsons
    Slaton

    and add Marshall and Barber and Aker to the pen and that doesn't look real shabby as far as a pitching staff goes.

    Davis hobbling around the outfield with Pinella and maybe Coluccio.
    Mincher at first
    Harper at third
    Garcia at second
    Any others that later blossomed into having a couple of decent years in the early 70's? Thomas would have been too late to include.
    It wouldn't have been a world beater in 70 and 71 but I think the potential to break even during one of those seasons.

    Which three Pilots played in the 1965 World Series . One is easy.

    Tommy Davis would have to be one and another could be Rich Rollins?

    John Kennedy also played, though quite sparingly.
