    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?

    Hey JG did Nate give you any information on what he's up to these days? He was all the Padres had in the early days. A feared slugger.

      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?

          It wasn't Jim Bouton, was it?

            That's correct Erik!

              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

                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?

And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

                            John Kennedy also played, though quite sparingly.
