On the blog today we have a "not so missing" 1974 card for pitcher Andy Hassler, who was still struggling to hang on to what ended up being a nice 14-year career that ended after the 1985 season:

Hassler appeared in seven games in his second season at the Big League level, going 0-4 for the Angels with a 3.69 earned run average over 31.2 innings of work.
The following season would see him a regular starter for the Angels, appearing in 23 games while tossing 10 complete games and two shutouts, posting a record of 7-11 with a very nice 2.61 ERA over 162 innings.
He'd have a rough 1975 season that saw him go 3-12 with a bloated 5.94 ERA over 30 games, 18 of them starts, and he'd find himself sent over to the Kansas City Roylas in 1976 after an 0-6 start, finishing the season at 5-12 with a 3.61 ERA over 33 games.
He would end up generally a relief pitcher starting with the 1978 season, pitching through to 1985 and finishing up with a record of 44-71, with an ERA at 3.88 over 387 appearances and 1123.1 innings, with five shutouts and 29 saves along the way.
I remember him as this "veteran" pitcher and am only now seeing that when he retired he was still only 33 years of age! Incredible.



  1. Andy Hassler is one of the few '70s players with a long career that I don't collect. I think that only Angels fans appreciate him.

  2. Well Dickie Thon certainly did not appreciate Andy Hassler, either!

  3. Why did Thon not appreciate Hassler?

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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/) 

  8. 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.
