    I think you mean "has been consistently bad." And this is the stuff I wanted to hear. "Thank God they were playing the Cubs." Hold on, gotta get it together again...

      I remember Eddie Mathews had a terrible World Series in 1958. The Braves were defending World Champions, were leading three games to one, and lost to the Yankees in seven games. Mathews was 4 for 25 with 11 strikeouts, which I believe set a record for strikeouts at the time. When Willie Wilson struck out 12 times in the 1980 World Series, I remember reading where Mathews was happy that he at least didn't have that record anymore.

        well I never heard of Hodges, but I don't think Pat Burrel didn't contribute at all. I mean, walks do count as contribution.

        I do hope he does better next time

          They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

            Owen was hit by pitch.

            So Marv Owen's career record, 1934 and 1935, was 3-for-54, all singles, with two walks and two hit by pitch.

                  You don't need to be old.
                  Many people know of Gil Hodges because he ranked first, tie first-second, third, and fourth in the 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2009 elections for the Hall of Fame --the voting by HOF members and honorees, and then by members only, which elected no one. Successively these were the leaders, listing everyone who made a strong showing, where I call 'em as I see 'em.
                  : Hodges, Oliva, Santo
                  : Hodges & Santo, Oliva, Kaat, Torre

                    Heinie Zimmerman in the 1917 Series was pretty bad - didn't hit and looked bad in a rundown against Eddie Collins (Zimmerman played 3rd and basically chased Collins as he ran home safely).

                        Roger Peckinpaugh 1925 WS playing for the Senators. Pirates take WS 4-3.
                        Peck batted .250, 6 for 24, 3 RBI and one homer.
                        At SS he made 8 errors. One really hurt.

                        Game 2, game tied 1-1, 8th inning. Makes error and Cuyler hits 2 run home run, Pirates up 3-1. Later in that inning he makes his second error but Pirates do not score. Senators score one in 9th an lose 3-2. This is the Senators only loss in the first 4 games.

                        Game 4 he makes a throwing error to first base but gets lucky, Judge trying to score out at home. Senators win 4-3.

                        Game 6 he is picked off second base but advances to third on error.

                        He made at least one error in every game. After one of his errors the runner was erased on a DP. Some times we see errors made and the team does not score, what do we hear, the error did not hurt. I have to question that one, it could hurt later. Unless that runner is erased or picked off, it could hurt later in the game. It could mean having to face a hitter you don't want to see come to the plate later in the game. It's a possibility.
                        Not a good WS for Peck
