    Great topic! Bookies were in every drug store, bar, and YMCA lobbies. Post WW-1, the favorite bet by the guys in the first base seats was, "winning team scores more runs in one inning, than the losing more »

    Overall, he gets an A-; for this year, I'd say a C+

    The 8 man roster is VG+

    Must be for lost games bull pen. Wasn't his ERA almost 6 last year? Some of that in the National League? He's never been what you would call a "good" pitcher; why now?
