Happy # 87 Roger Craig


We say happy birthday to Roger Craig.     

We remember him as a young pitcher with the Brooklyn Dodgers, a starter with the awful 1962-63 New York Mets and then the manager who led the San Francisco Giants to the NL West title 1987 and the NL pennant in 1989.

As a pitcher, he was 74-98 with a 3.83 ERA.    Again, those 98 losses must be put into context:  he was 15-46 with the last place Mets, arguably the worst expansion team in MLB history.     His 49-38 record with the Dodgers is probably a better measurement of his talent as a pitcher.

As a manager, he was 738-737 with 2 pennants.     He was also the pitching coach for the 1984 Detroit Tigers who won the World Series.
