Machado  is going to be pissed  when he  sees  how hard  HRs  are in Petco  v.  Camden.

Newk was also quite the hitter. Could easily have been his day's Shohei. Hit .271 lifetime and bested .300 4 x in 10 seasons. And not just singles either. Alcohol abused curtailed his career but he recovered soon thereafter and did great PR and anti- alcohol abuse work for many years thereafter. Dark blue 1960 BB card - my introduction to him. 

Newk was often used by the Dodgers as a pitch hitter of choice. Hit something like .350 one year in over 100 ABs. He also hit 7 HRs in 1955.

Machado got crazy money from San Diego. 10 years and $300M. White Sox offered 8 yrs and $250M (which, annualized, is more), plus incentives. ChiSox thought he was theirs.

Lasorda got into total of 8 games for Brooklyn in 1954 and 1955 seasons. Tommy was the best pitcher in the Int'l League in the early to mid 50s. Today they'd call him a AAAA player

Demeter had 3 at bats in 1956.

Gentile had 6 ABs in Brooklyn in 1957 -- then 46 HR for the 1961 Orioles (plus four other seasons with 28 or more homers). Terrible trade in 1960 by LA -- all they got was $50K and Willie Miranda. Dodgers rated Norm Larker higher than Gentile.

Bob Aspromonte--recall  him as a Colt 45.  Brother Ken played mostly for Indians


In addition to Erskine & Craig, Don  Demeter--recall  him as LA Dodger,

Jim Gentile--recall  him w/Orioles.  Tommy Brown, Eddie Basinski--who?  Lasorda may not have pitchedf  or Bklyn but I had  is 1955card--Green as I recall.

Erskine,Spooner, ?,  Koufax,   Lasorda,  Craig?

Who  was he traded to Reds   around 1957?

RIP

Looked it up. In June 1958, after Newk started 0-6 for the new LA Dodgers, they traded him to the Reds for Johnny Klippstein and Steve Bilko. Newk ended up 7-7 for the Reds. Then had a good 1959 with Cincinnati. Won 13 games. In 1960, Reds sold Don to the Indians and that was it for him.

Thanks for the list of living Brooklyn Dodgers. Somehow, even though I know he was a bonus baby for Brooklyn (and had to be kept on the major league roster in 55 and 56), I just never think of Koufax as anything but an LA Dodger. I know that's wrong thinking (he got in 60 games or so for Brooklyn in three years there), but ... just how I feel.
