Look how many other pitchers had good ERAs and were below .500. Hoyt must have gotten good run support.


They were always known as the Hitless Wonders ...

in those days, they couldn't catch, either.

Must have sucked to go 2-12 with an ERA more than half a run lower than the league average.

And three seasons later, Hoyt won the AL Cy Young.


The fielding on that team was just awful

You had two good fielders, at first (Mike Squires) and in center (Chet Lemon) and the young Harold Baines was serviceable, but the rest were largely terrible, maybe the worst fielding in baseball.
