Did you forget Floyd Youmans even existed? I sure did. Anyway, I wound up with 1986 Youmans in SpotSell's 1976-92 Pick Six league. Youmans and 1985 Charlie Hough were slated as my top 2 starters. If you know anything about Pick 6 themes, you'd know we were doomed from the get-go. Since I figured we were sunk anyway, I chose Mile High as our stadium, so there'd at least be some fun boxscores to look at. Well...
Hough has performed about as well as I expected. Thru 126 games he's 9-10 with an ERA of 6.81.
Youmans, whose real life stats are in the same ballpark as Hough's quality-wise (ERC#'s 2.69 and 2.71, in favor of Hough), has performed a bit better. He just won the pm2 game, which put my team at 66-60 and a 3-way tie for the wild card. This is a happy place for us, since we were about 10 games out of the wild card as recently as the all-star break. Youman's ERA is a very respectable (considering the park) 3.38, and he's currently the Cy Young leader. What's more, the pm2 win was Youmans' 20th in a row -- he started out 1-1 and is now 21-1.
Believe It or Don't!
