Also, just curious, but how does Early Wynn's 1948 rank among the worst ever seasons by a Hall of Famer? 8 and 19 with a 5.82 ERA (74 ERA+) in 198 innings--94 walks and only 49 strikeouts.

OF Quentin Berry to BAL
#11-- It made "GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT" sound like a routine fly ball in spring training.
If Doc make the Hall, his 2000 will deserve a place at the top of the pile, IP requirement be damned.
67 IP, 48 ERA+ (10.94), plus another 73 inning of 5.50 work at Triple A.
Blue Jays bullpen coach Pat Hentgen has resigned to deal with family issues. Bob Stanley takes his place.
Norm Charlton is a good (minor) example of why the 2001 Mariners were the luckiest team of all-time.
From 1997-2000, pitching for 5 teams, Charlton had an ERA of 6.26 while averaging 6.4 BB/9.
He re-joins the Mariners for 2001, and, whaddayaknow, the 38 year-old (in his final season) gives them 48 innings (44 games) of 3.02 ERA pitching, with 48 Ks and only 11 walks. (And 3 more scoreless appearances in the post-season.)
Including the last two post-seasons, he's 29 for 29 on stolen base attempts in his career. Not too shabby.
