One Hit Wonders

Recommended Posts

Chito Martinez had a really good 1991, then slowly drifted away.

Curtis Goodwin had an amazing first month and a half in 1995, then came plummeting back to earth.

Loved Chito that year, really thought he was going to be good. What about Jay Gibbons?

Wayne Garland.

After looking him up, he actually had a good year in 1977 with Cleveland after his 20 win season with the O's in 1976. Still...kind of a one year wonder...

Jim Traber drove in 32 runs in his first 32 games with the team in the summer of 1986, posting an OPS over 1.000 over the five week span while Eddie Murray was injured.

He reverted to being Jim Traber after that, but not before prompting a "Who needs Eddie Murray?" bandwagon that was the beginning of the end for Eddie.

I've often wished Traber had just been terrible then like he was the rest of his career. He later made up the worst defensive outfield I've ever seen in a game - Traber in left, Ken Gerhart in center, and Larry Sheets in right.

Oh my word. That could possibly be one of the worst outfield alignments ever.
