View Full Version : 1967...

Just reading the article again, 2 things killed us: we couldn't beat the 2 worst teams in the league, the Athletics or the Senators (we beat the best teams). Second, in a nationally televised game against either the twins or the bosox (I forget), the ump called Agee out at 3rd when he tried to leg out a triple, when he was "safe by a mile." That put us into a skid, and it was downhill after that.

Still a great season. With all of the superior pitching on that team, it's a mystery that we couldn't win 70 games the next several years. 1970 was the bottom, 56-106, the worst season ever.
Still, Horlen, Peters and John should have carried a team to more wins than that.
