Johnny Podres was a Padre?
How did I not know that before tonight?
He was a member of the 1969 Padres.... their first season. And I am convinced the GM signed him for the Abbott and Costello esque confusion of "Who's pitching for the Padres?" "Podres." that must have happened that year.
It's a tragedy that Billy Brewer never played for Milwaukee.
