    Can you find that on baseball reference?

    Yeah i've been thinking of players and checking em as I go otherwise i'd have 20 extra posts on here. I remembered Amos Strunk from a draft we did recently.

    Thats interesting, That really makes me wonder if he was at least in the dugout during the WS. I would have t think he had a roster spot in that WS but again it's hard to get in games with Koufax and Drysdale.

    I flipped them too. I was thinking of 66 when they lost and left off 53, when he pitched but they lost.

    He had a halfway decent year but I would have to guess he made the WS roster and never got in a game. Unless he got injured.

    He left the Dodgers and played wit the Tigers in 1966.

    1965 i'm kinda curious if he was on the WS roster. Baseball Reference I don't think tells who was on the WS rosters.
    Yeah, I edited that. BB-Ref doesn't have the rosters, just who played.

    He was on a winning 65 LA team but did not pitch. I wonder why he wasn't on the WS roster though.

    1966 he pitched briefly for the Dodgers. They lost to the Orioles that year.

    Actually I wonder if Podres was on the 1965 WS roster. Having Koufax and Drysdale probably kept him out of the series.

    Let's set the record straight. True, Podres pitched in the Series for 3 winning teams, but he was an active member of 5 World Series teams.

    He pitched in 53 for a losing Brooklyn team.
    He pitched in 55 for a winning Brooklyn team, and was WS MVP.
    He pitched in 59 for a winning LA team.
    He pitched in 63 for a winning LA team.
    He was on a losing LA team in 65 but did not pitch in the Series.

    Ummmm I believe Podres played in 55 . . . . uh twice.

    It was 65 when he sat. (They should have at least pinch hit him. He hit .313 in the post season.)

    Edit: Oh, he wasn't on the roster? I guess they knew it would be over quickly.
