The future looks bright with up and coming stars like these three! Edwards’ twin brother Mike played in the A’s system, and younger brother Dave plays for the Twins. A bit of irony that the one Edwards brother who isn’t a twin plays for the Twins?
Card of the Day
Every trade seemed to go the Brewers’ way in the late ’70s and early ’80s, and the Oglivie acquisition was no exception. Benji was acquired from the Tigers in 1977 for pitchers Rich Folkers and Jim Slaton. Slaton spent one season with the Tigers before returning to the Brewers as a free agent.
Outfielder Dick Davis could never find a home in the Brewers outfield, so he was dealt to the Phillies for Lerch. Will Randy make an impact in 1982?
Vuke quickly established himself as the ace in his first year with the Crew in 1981. Can the 29-year-old improve in 1982?
We’re already three Slaton cards in, so we’re running out of cool things to say about him. But if he can avoid injury this season, Jim will be an important part of the staff.
In his second year with the Crew since coming over from Philadelphia, Lerch is still trying to find his role. Will the 27-year-old be a prominent starter in 1982?
