Wasn't Craig  6-24  for 1962  Mets?

Roger went 10-24. Jack Fisher was 8-24 for the '65 Mets. Fisher's ERA was, btw, under 4.00. Al Jackson also lost 20 for that same 1965 Mets team.

Red Ruffing lost 25 in 1928 and 22 the following season for the Red Sox. The great Walter Johnson lost 25 in 1909. Ruffing finally got into the HoF and has a plaque in Monument Park. Johnson was a "first five" selectee to the HoF.

Your note on Ned Garver reminded me of one of the remarkable stat lines compiled by an ex-Brownie - Mr. Don Larsen. In his 1st year with the newly christened Orioles of Baltimore, he went 3 and 21!

That's quite an accomplishment, even for a guy who "regularly" tossed perfect games in World Series outings. Wink

I recall that 3-21 record. Had to look at the stats on the back of his baseball card twice! His ERA was 4.37. Not bad by today's standards!

Joe-correct--glad  to see  Cubs gone.   Hard to believe Yelich is better than Stanton.   Not a fluke  --think this will  continue.

 Stanton  went to N Dame  High on Woodman  in SF  valley.  Yelich  from Chatsworth  or another  SF Valley HS  in  that area.

El  Toro  HS-Romine,  Arenado &  Chapman !!

Which great Home Run hitter played for both The NY Giants, and Yankees?    What great Home Run Hitter played for both The Red Sox and Braves?  Which great HR hitter played for both The Braves and brewers?  Several very good players played for both The Cubs and White Sox, and Cards and Browns.  A few played for The Red Sox and Braves.
- Johnny Mize has to be the slugger who played for Giants and Yanks.
- Babe Ruth. for Red Sox and Boston Braves
- Hank Aaron, Braves and Brewers

ALL 3 correct.  I can't believe no one thought of them to list for #1.  What about Cardinals greats who played for The Browns near the very end of their careers?  What about Cub stars who played for The white Sox near their career ends?  What about NL stars who were raided by their new AL rivals during the first couple years of The AL?  What about NL players raided by their new crosstown rivals from The new American Association, The Players' League, or The Federal League?

Nice  job  Joe.

Dont forget  Casey! Grin Grin Grin

Or Durocher.

Yeah, there's gotta be a slew of the real old-timers who should be included. Leo and Casey should be included as players, and Leo again as manager of both the Dodgers and Giants.

The early Mets clearly had a soft spot for old Brooklyn Dodgers. No so for older Giants.

Great 12 inning NL Wild Card game last night. Tension at Wrigley was high from!! Place was rocking. Personally, I'm glad to see the Rockies and Brewers back in the playoffs. Been awhile! Good to see some new blood.

Interesting stat--baseball  of course has gone computer crazy-- the A's  starter  today  against Yanks  is only the  4TH  starter  of  a  playoff  game to to  have  a 0-0  record.   
2 recently  had 0-0 records  because of  injury.  The 4th  is Virgil  Trucks--in 1945 for Tigers v. Cubs.  He had just been discharged from Army.  RIP  Virgil.
