NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1979 ODELL JONES

Today's blog post has a "not so missing" 1979 card for former pitcher Odell Jones, who appeared in only three games for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1978 after seeing significant playing time the year prior:

  

Coming off a 1977 season which saw him appear in 34 games, with 15 of them starts, for the Pirates, Jones was limited to only three games in 1978, going 2-0 with a 2.00 earned run average over nine innings.

In 1979 he would find himself a member of the Seattle Mariners, where he appeared in 25 games, starting 19, and posting a record of 3-11 with an ERA of 6.07 over 118.2 innings pitched.
After a year in the Minors in 1980 he was back in Pittsburgh in 1981, before spending another year in the Minors in 1982, coming back to the Big Leagues with two years with the Texas Rangers in 1983 and 1984.
1985 would have him back in the Minors, only to see him scrape his way back in 1986, now with the Baltimore Orioles before, you guessed it, another year in the Minors in 1987 before coming back in 1988 for what was his last year in the Majors, pitching for the Milwaukee Brewers and going an impressive 5-0 over 28 appearances.
Sadly, he would spend 1989 and 1992 in the Minors yet again, with the in-between years seemingly out of pro-ball, and retire soon after the 1992 season

All told, Odell finished his nine-year Major League career with a record of 24-35 over 201 appearances, posting an ERA of 4.42 over 549.1 innings of work, with four complete games and 13 saves along the way.

  1. Nice '79 card, it seemed like he was in the Pirates system forever in the 70s.

    1. Hello everyone I want to let the whole world know how Dr Great has restored my broken relationship with Wayne. We have been together for 3 years and he told me that he doesn’t love me like he used to. Things have not been good for about 4 months and he ended this about 2 weeks ago. I was miserable and just don’t want to go on anymore. I did text him right after this but he didn’t even respond to me. One day I was searching for a way to get him back on the Internet when I saw a post of a lady testifying of how a love spell caster called Dr Great helped her to get back her Ex, I was so desperate to get mine back so I messaged him and explained my situation to him and he instructed me to do somethings which I did and 24 hours later my boyfriend Wayne came back kneeling and begging for my forgiveness and I forgive him and our relationship was back to normal again, if your Ex broke up with you or you have any problem then you problem has come to an end because Dr Great can solve all marriage and relationship problems. If you need his urgent help email him at

  2. I wonder why his stuff was good enough for AAA but not great enough MLB? And, how about his determination to endure that. One wonders how many players woukd have given up.
