C'mon... a little effort people...

You're a photographer working for Topps in the mid '70's... and get a primo assignment. Get your ass to San Diego and get some shots of the Padres! Alright! San Diego! Party Town!

Crap. Now it's early on the "morning after", and you need to get the job done. Okay. Let's get this over with.
All of you Padre relievers.... stand on the white line and pretend to do a windup, that way I don't have to move. Or think.

Oh c'mon!!!! At least give the last guy a ball! Sweet Jesus. Have some pride man.

Great observation. It probably went down pretty much just like that. Good stuff man.

The third guy - Jerry Johnson - doesn't even look like a pitcher. I did a little digging, and turns out he was an amateur ball player when originally drafted, and a converted 3rd baseman. It also turns out, you uncovered one of the guys involved in the controversial trade that was the basis for the overhaul of players' rights and what we not know as free agency. Who else was involved in that 1969 trade? You guessed it, everyone's favorite Red Sox groupie whore, Tim McCarver.
