DEDICATED ROOKIE- 1977 TONY ARMAS

Another fun card to create for the blog, here's a 1977 "dedicated rookie" for former home run champ Tony Armas, who originally came up with the Pittsburgh Pirates with a handful of games in 1976:


Armas went 2-for-6 at the plate in his first taste of the Big Leagues, good for a .333 average, with a run batted in and two strikeouts.
Of course we all know he would soon find himself part of a big nine-player trade that sent him to the Oakland A's, for whom he would suit up for the next six seasons.
In 1980 he would get his first shot at full-time play and would not disappoint, hitting 35 homers for Oakland while driving in 109 runs.
The following season he would end up tied for the American League lead with 22 homers, good enough to finish fourth in the MVP race at season's end and making his first All-Star team.
After a 1982 season that saw him dip a little with 28 homers and 89 RBIs to go with a .239 batting average, Armas was traded to the Boston Red Sox for former batting champ Carney Lansford, and he would immediately find Fenway park to his liking, hitting 36 homers while driving in 107, though hitting only .218.
1984 would arguably be his best season in the Big Leagues, as he would lead the A.L. with 43 homers and 123 RBIs while hitting .268, making his second All-Star team and finishing seventh in MVP voting, while also scoring a career-best 107 runs.
The next two years would see his playing time drop as well as production, hitting 23 and 11 homers respectively, leading to him moving on to the California Angels in 1987 where he'd appear in only 28 games, hitting .198 with three homers and nine RBIs.
He'd play a little more in both 1988 and 1989 but with only 13 and 11 homers the writing was on the wall for the 35-year-old, and would retire shortly after.

All told, Armas finished his 14-year career with 251 home runs and 815 RBIs, along with a .252 average over 1432 games and 5164 at-bats between 1976 and 1989, scoring 614 runs and collecting 1302 hits.

  2. Surprised he ended up hitting as high as .250, which to me is an acceptable average for a power hitter.

  6. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/

  7. How I Got My Ex Husband Back..Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr  Aluya   can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr  Aluya Powerful Love Spell that really works. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at:  aluya.48hoursspelltemple@gmail.com  or whatsapp him on:  +2348110493039      you can also go through his website   draluya48hoursspelltemple.webs.com/
