I am happy to say these are getting fewer and further between. But still, they happen. You can’t hit a home run every time. Here are four more players who signed the card but did not fill out the questionnaire.
We shall start with Omar Moreno, mostly because he played for the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates and they are one of the first teams I remember winning the World Series. Moreno was a key member of that team, hitting .282 with 110 runs scored. He led the National League in stolen bases with 77 and finished 15th in the MVP vote.
Bo McLaughlin pitched for parts of six seasons in the big leagues. He appeared in 46 games for the Houston Astros in 1977, finishing 4-7 with five saves in what was, arguably, his best year.
Craig Swan won 59 games during a 12-year run through the majors. He was a 14-game winner for the New York Mets in 1979. He led the National League in ERA (2.43) the year before. He only posted double-digit wins one other time, in 1982 for the Mets.
A Cy Young contender as a rookie, Dave Rozema‘s career peaked during his first season in the big leagues. He went 15-7 with a 3.09 ERA as a rookie in 1977 for the Detroit Tigers, finishing eighth in the Cy Young vote and fourth in the American League Rookie of the Year tally. It was the only time he ever reached double digits in wins, however, despite remaining in the majors for another nine seasons.
