    And of course, receiving Frank Howard, Ken McMullen, Pete Richert, Phil Ortega and Dick Nen for Claude Osteen and John Kennedy wasn't a bad deal for the Senators.

    Claude was an excellent pitcher for the Dodgers, but probably wouldn't have gotten much support over the years in D.C. Howard and McMullen were both good players. Richert showed promise as a starter, but carved his niche as a reliever when he went to Baltimore - and he was traded for Epstein and Bertania (of course, Epstein was a throw-in, as I recall, he was refusing to report to the minors in the Oriole system). Ortega was a reliable starter for the Senators for a couple of seasons. Nen never lived up to minor league promise - his son Robb Nen had a pretty good career.

    Pilot-Brewer Aquisitions

    Very true. Coming to the Senators seemed to have an affect on players. Like the early Mets,they were usually past their prime or young players with no future. In fairness,we didn't have much to offer in return. We also got Wayne Comer in 1970 for Hank Allen and I believe that trade was made between games of a doubleheader at RFK. Comer was a solid contributor to the Pilots but did nothing for the Nats.

    And don't forget the contributions to the Senators via the Orioles........Sam Bowens, Fred Valentine, John Saverine, Mike Epstein (though Mike had a couple of decent seasons)...........and the other "can't miss" guy, Frank Bertania.

When the Senators got him in 1970,I was pretty excited but he only hit .241 with 0 Homers in his short time here. Everyone the Senators picked up off the scrap heap was like that. Check out Don Wert,Jerry Janeski and Frank Fernandez' stats as Senators.

    error

    You saw it. Wayne "Cromer" is Wayne Comer. I have an autographed picture of him,as a Pilot,on my wall. I also have an 8" x 10" of him with the Senators. Good eye!
    P.S.- Like your user name. A Greg Goosen fan is a true fan. Did you know that he's an actor now? I have him in "Get Shorty" with John Travolta. You have to look very close. There's a scene where movie director,Danny DeVito,is meeting Travolta at an outdoor cafe. When he's walking in,Goosen greets him from another table. He's Gregory Goosen in the credits.

    Mike Marshall did win a Cy Young albeit not with the Pilots and Wayne Cromer although he bares a strange resemblance to Wayne Comer never played a game for the Pilots. I'm not very observant so lay it down on us brother. The truth I mean.

    SportsEncylopedia says one of the reasons they traded Lou Pineilla
    was his paycheck-$175,000. I`m sure that was his draft price and
    not what they had to pay him.

    A couple of more links...

    A write up on the Seattle Pilots from the Seattle Times:

    "Ready For The Show"

    From SportsEcyclopedia.com:

    Seattle Pilots writeup

    From Jim Bouton's website, the possibility of a Seattle Pilots "Old Timers" Game is discussed here: (Pilots Team Song "Go Go You Pilots" plays in background)

    Pilots Old Timers Day?

    The Seattle Pilots played .500 ball versus the Boston Red Sox and the (then) California Angels. They had a losing record against everyone else EXCEPT my beloved Senators. The Pilots were 7-5 (.583) versus Washington.

    For the Pilots team-by-team record, check this link:
