NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 NINO ESPINOSA

On the blog today, a "not so missing" 1976 card for former New York Mets pitcher Nino Espinosa, who appeared in only two games the year prior, his second taste of the Big Leagfues in as many seasons:


Espinosa was still only 21 years of age when he went 0-1 with an 18.00 earned run average over three innings in those two games, giving up eight hits and six runs.
He would fare much better in 1976, going 4-4 with a respectable 3.67 ERA over 12 appearances, five of them starts, throwing 41.2 innings.
Over the next three years, he would be a solid starter for both the Mets in 1977 and 1978, then the Philadelphia Phillies in 1979 when he'd top 10+ wins each season, with a high of 14 in 1979, tossing over 200 innings each time.
Sadly for him though, 1980 would see him appear in only 12 games for the eventual World Champion Phillies, as he would finish with a record of 3-5 with a 3.77 ERA before splitting what turned out to be his last season in the Big Leagues in 1981.
In that final season, still only 27 years of age, he'd play for both the Phillies and Toronto Blue Jays, appearing in 14 games, going 2-5 with an ERA of 6.15 over 73.2 innings of work, apparently leaving the game for good shortly after.

All told, he finished his Major League career with a record of 44-55 over eight seasons, with an ERA at 4.17 over 140 games and 820.1 innings pitched, with 24 complete games and five shutouts along the way.

  2. Nice card, did not know his Mets career went that far back...arm injuries did him in 1980, so the Phillies had to scramble and came up with Bob Walk and Marty Bystrom to fill out the rotation for their run to the World Series.

    1. Heh heh, and when the post-season came, they had to find ways to legitimately keep Walk and the otherwise-ineligible Bystrom on the roster, like inventing injuries for the ineffective Espinosa and Randy Lerch. lol

  4. I am here to testify on how Dr ONIHA saved my marriage. I saw a post on a particular site sharing testimony on how a great spell caster brought back her ex. Initially I thought the post was unreal but I later had a second thought and another person still shared his testimony on how he brought back his wife. So I contacted the spell caster as instructed by the post. I have no option than to try my best because my Husband left me with my two kids after a minor misunderstanding. Me and my husband got married over six years and we lived so happily. At a certain time my husband started behaving strangely. When I saw the post, I contacted the spell caster on his email and he told me not to worry that my husband will come back to me and the kids in two days once he finishes casting the reunite spell. To my greatest surprise, my husband came back to me begging for a second chance. I am very happy now because my marriage is restored by this great spell caster DR ONIHA and we are living happily together as one family again. I want to use this medium to let everyone here know that this is real and if you are out there having this same problem please kindly contact Dr ONIHA the great spell caster he can also help you solve your problems...
