    The 1881 Troy Trojans, of course. Why, I remember this one game ...

    1881 Troy (NL) Pitching Staff:

    "Smiling Tim" Keefe* 45 GS, 403 IP, W 18 L 27, 3.24 ERA
    "Smiling Mickey" Welch* 40 GS, 368 IP, W 21 L 18, 2.67 ERA

    Correct. And despite having an all-HOF pitching staff, both staff members in their primes, they finished in the second division of the National League!

    And despite being so smiling he is also credited for being the original designer of the all-black "funeral" uniforms.

    Every pitcher on the staff pitched a complete game every time out, too.

    An extreme case of a manager "being afraid to go to his bullpen" indeed!
