Interesting too that F Robby won the Triple Crown in 1966 and Yaz (Bridgehampton HS) won it the very next year. Took another 45 years for Cabrera to get his!

Yaz  302  BA  must have been lowest ever  for 3  Crown.

BTW,who did Cincy get for Robby? Pappas?

Yup - Pappas and some non-entities. The epitome of a lopsided trade.

O's probably threw in a bag of balls. Reds were not the first organization to tire of Frank. One of the greatest players of all time in my estimation but ... rubbed most people (bosses, peers and underlings) wrong. Personally, I liked his style when he was the Nats manager but, I was an exception in the fan base. Old school guy -- no music in the clubhouse, short with the beat writers, fined players, etc.

Seriously, Reds also got P Jack Baldschun and OF Dick Simpson. Baldschun went 1-5 with a high ERA in his two yrs with the Reds. Simpson was a deep bench guy in his two yrs with the Reds -- roughly got less than 90 AB a year and a .240 hitter. Pappas was 30-29 in three yrs with the Reds but had a couple real good years for the Cubs in the early 70s. Won 17 in one of those Wrigley years.

Reminds  me  of  Lou Brock  for  Ernie  Broglio, and  Ryan   for  Fregosi.
