MINOR LEAGUE DAYS- LUIS TIANT

This week's addition to my now long-running 1971 "Minor League Days" thread is the great Luis Tiant, arguably a Hall of Famer who was putting in one last great season in the Minors in 1964 with the Portland Beavers:


Tiant would end up with a record of 15-1 that year with the Beavers, along with a sweet 2.04 earned run average over 17 appearances and 137 innings pitched, with 154 strikeouts and 13 complete games.
On TOP of all that, he also made his Major League debut that season with the Cleveland Indians, going 10-4 with a 2.91 ERA and three shutouts in only 19 appearances, completing nine of his starts as a 23-year-old.
By the time he finished his career in 1982, 18 years later, he finished with a 229-172 record, with a 3.30 E.R.A., 49 shutouts and 2416 strikeouts, with two seasons of sub-2.00 E.R.A., four 20-win campaigns as well as three 200+ strikeout years.
As a kid in Brooklyn, New York in the late 70's I remember him with the Yankees, and always thought he looked like some cool grampa who was always cracking jokes. In other words, I loved him!
After getting 30.9% support in his first year on the Hall of Fame ballot in 1988, he never got close again to those numbers, topping out at 18.0% in his final year of eligibility in 2002.
Do I think he's a Hall of Fame pitcher? Tough call based on statistics alone. However I do feel that when you add in his personality, his long-lasting mark on the game in that time and place, he should be in.

"El Tiante"!!!

  9. I never believed in Spells or Magics until I met this special spell caster called DR ISIKOLO. The man i wanted to marry left me 3 months to our wedding ceremony and my life was upside down.he was with me for 4 years and i really love him so much. he left me for another woman with no reasons. when i called him, he never picked up my calls and he don't want to see me around him. so,when i told the man what happened. he helped me to do some readings, and after the readings he made me to realize that the other woman has done some spells over my Husband and that is the reason why he left me..he told me he will help me to cast a spell to bring him back. At first i was skeptical but i just gave it a try and In 2 days, My Husband called me himself and came to me apologizing. I cant believe he can ever come back to me again but now i am happy he's back and we are married now and we live as a happy family. Am posting this to the forum if anyone needs the help of this man.Can contact him through this WhatsApp: +2348133261196 or email: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com website: https://isikololovetemple.com

  14. I am sharing this testimony to partners suffering in their relationships because there is an enduring solution.
    My husband left me and our 2 kids for another woman for 3 years. I tried to be strong just for my kids but I could not control the pains that torment my heart. I was hurt and confused. I needed help, so I did some research on the internet and came across a site where I saw that Dr. Aluya a spell caster, can help get lovers back. I contacted him and he did a special prayer and spells for me. To my surprises, after some days, my husband came back home. That was how we reunited again and there was a lot of love, joy and peace in the family.

  17. I am summer jessic from USA. I was having serious relationship problems with my lover and it had resulted in her moving out to her friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because she started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with her friend, getting drunk and passing out. She always threatens me on phone whenever I call her because of all the bad advises that her friend has given her. I really love her and we had been dating for 4 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to DR Aluya a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood girlfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get her back. I did all he asked and after 28 hours my girlfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. She has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found DR Aluya. So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to DR Aluya for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too. you  can contact him via:email:{ aluya.48hoursspelltemple@gmail.com }  or WhatsApp Him.  +2348110493039          also contact Him through his website:   https://draluya48hoursspelltemple.webs.com/

  18. How this great man called Dr Isikolo helped me to bring back my lover within 48 hours is still unbelievable to me. my lover who broke up with me since last May this year and all my effort to him back proved abortive. i love him so much that any time i see him with another girl i will be angry. so one day i was going through the internet when i saw a testimony of a woman how this great man name DR ISIKOLO helped her to get back with her husband, so lucky for me he dropped the contact of the man, so i quickly called the number he did not pick i emailed him after about 2 hours time he called me back and he replied my email. i explained everything to him and he gave me full information on the process and what to do. so he told that he need some items to do the prayers for me which i did i did my possible best to get for him to ensure my prayers is done and within 48 hours as he already assured me, my lover came back to me pleading to me asking for forgiveness, he now love me, cherish me and he promise that he will never leave me again. all thanks to DR ISIKOLO, you can also email him: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com or his WhatsApp: +2348133261196 and be rest assured of the solution because he is simply the best you can find anywhere.

  19. 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/)

  20. My husband left me for a younger woman and I was devastated. It was as if she had him under an evil spell, Paul turned against me overnight without any warning. It happened last year, I was desperate so I used every single spell casting website that I could find with no results. A friend sent me the link to Dr. Ilekhojie site and I contacted him. He started working with me on June. As a result from all of his wonderful work, my man and I are back together. I’m so happy and privileged to have such a great person like you on my side. Thank you!

  21. 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/

  22. My husband and I have been married for over 10 years. We met when I was 18 and he was 21. We’ve been through a lot emotionally together. There were several HUGE fights and painful situations in our marriage, but we always seemed to come out stronger on the other side. Out of the blue my husband just sprung the divorce talk on me, I was totally depressed until I found Dr.Todd website online and I ordered for a Love spell. You won’t believe my husband called me at the exact time this spell caster finished his spell work in 48hrs. I was totally amazed! He is wonderful and his spells work so fast.
