Default Trivia Question


What NL pitcher is ranked:

2nd in innings pitched;
5th in ERA;
5th in strikeouts;
Tied for 2nd in shutouts;
Tied for 5th in complete games pitched;

....and NOT on the All-Star roster?

Thank you to Dusty Baker, the office of the Commissioner and, most of all, to
the Dodger hitters (for their unwaveringly LOUSY run support, leading to a
unflattering 9-8 W/L record) for combining for yet another All-Star snub for
one of the most underrated and underappreciated starting pitchers of my
generation: Hideo Nomo.

Tell you the truth, Gnork, the way things are going long-term for the Dodgers,
I think I'd rather dangle him and some of the pen pitchers in front of teams
like the 'Stros, Cards or, yes, Red Sox <g> who NEED pitching to get them
closer to the promised land this year and see what young hitting talent we
might be able to pry loose for next year and the coming years. It seems all our
farm system can produce is pitching nowadays and we can fill holes in the
rotation and pen much easier than we can go out and find hitters.

I confess, though, I've not kept up with the farm clubs of the abovementioned
team, so I haven't a clue as to who they might have available. It just seems
that playing the Cards off against the 'Stros down the stretch this year might
get us a sweet deal :-)

RWG (assuming, of course, the Dodger brass WANT to deal :-)

Maybe Dusty thinks Nomo's race just doesn't hold up well in the hot sun
