JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT- 1970'S BASEBALL TRIVIA PART #119 (A REVISIT OF #37)




Another week, another set of trivia questions for you to ponder.
This week I'm focusing on 30-save seasons during the 1970's.
See which ones you can get.
As usual, I'll post the answers tomorrow.

1. Of all 30-save seasons in both the N.L. and A.L. through the '70's, who posted the most losses in a season of 30+ saves?

2. Who posted the lowest E.R.A. in a 30-save season during the decade?

3. Who posted the most wins during a 30-save season?

4. Who struck out the most batters in a 30-save season during the '70's?

5. Who appeared in the fewest games during a 30-save season in the 1970's?




***SPOILER ALERT! ANSWERS BELOW: 

1. Mike Marshall, Twins. 15 losses in 1979.

2. Bruce Sutter, Cubs. A 1.34 E.R.A. in 1977.

3. Mike Marshall, Expos. 14 wins in 1973.

4. Bruce Sutter, Cubs. 129 K's in 1977.

5. Dave Giusti, Pirates. 58 appearances in 1971.

  1. Did you plan the last 3 posts? I would assume yes, since it would be too much of a coincidence to have consecutive posts of Pete Rose, then Ray Fosse, and then the 1970 All-Star Game collision.

    Anyway, why is Dick Dietz (#2) on the field in shin guards? Anticipatory celebration perhaps? I am surprised Rose didn't try and bowl him over too.

    As for the answers to the trivia questions:
    I got the right answers for K's and ERA
    I guessed wrong for games...but ironically, my guess was the answer to both the Wins AND Losses (2 different seasons!)
