So I'm going through some of my old stuff which includes a baseball card collection from 1977 and 1978. I knew I had a lot of good stuff, but my jaw dropped to the floor when I discovered that I have an Eddie Murray rookie card!!! That's right, I have a 1978 card of Eddie Murray with his 1977 statistics with the Baltimore Orioles!! Holy crap, we're talking about Eddie Murray...504 lifetimes home runs and 3255 hits...yeah, THAT Eddie Murray! I knew I had some good stuff in there, but I didn't know I had him. Here's a list of some of the big names I have from 1977: 1 Jim Rice, 1 Andre Dawson, 1 Reggie Smith, 1 Fred Lynn, 1 Phil Niekro, 1 Nolan Ryan, 1 J.R. Richard. From 1978: 1 Eddie Murray, 1 Jim Palmer, 3 Jim Rice, 1 Carl Yastrzemski, 2 Luis Tiant, 1 Fred Lynn, 1 Rusty Staub, 1 Gary Carter, 3 Tony Perez, 2 Andre Dawson, 2 Dave Winfield, 2 Rollie Fingers, 2 Steve Carlton, 1 Mike Schmidt, 1 Jim Kaat, 1 Tug McGraw, 1 Greg Luzinski, 1 Sparky Lyle, 1 Rich Gossage, 2 Ron Guidry, 1 Graig Nettles, 2 Reggie Jackso ...
I can't believe the Mets are having all this success without the help of Neil Allen, Frank Tavares, Richie Hebner, Joel Youngblood, Hubie Brooks, Rey Ordonez, Craig Swan, Terry Leach, Armando Benitez, Tim Foli, Benny Agbayani, Duke Snider, Willie Mays, Claudell Washington and Rusty Staub. They're not called the Amazin's for nothing folks.

This years Honorary Naming of the Divisions Criteria is "Fat Guys" ... Yes.. Fat guys who have played the game of baseball (other than Babe Ruth, that's too conventional)...

Bob Horner, Ken Oberkfell, Fernando Valenzuela, Luis Tiant (my favorite) Kent Hrbek, Rick Reuschel, Gorman Thomas, Terry Pendleton,Bob Hamlin, Kevin Mitchell (another fave) Dave Parker, Benji Molina, Rusty Staub. add any others you can think of...

No, trading Amos Otis for Joe Foy, or trading Nolan Ryan for Jim Fregosi, or trading Rusty Staub for Mickey Lolich - worse.
Some players who choked up: Felix Millan, Rusty Staub, Matty Alou, Pete Rose > “duane kuiper >>listening to him now SF radio
The exact day i was born Game 1 Saturday, October 13, 1973 at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum in Oakland, California Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E New York 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 7 2 Oakland 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 X 2 4 0 WP: Ken Holtzman (1–0) LP: Jon Matlack (0–1) Sv: Darold Knowles (1) The Mets and A's opened the Series in Oakland with Jon Matlack and Ken Holtzman as the Game 1 starters (Matlack, with a 14–16 record during the 1973 season, is one of only four pitchers in history to start Game 1 of a World Series after a regular season losing record). Willie Mays started in place of the injured Rusty Staub and batted third in what turned out to be his final big league start. In the third, pitcher Holtzman doubled and scored when Bert Campaneris hit a routine grounder that inexplicably bounced between Mets second baseman's Felix Millan's legs. Campaneris then stole second and scored on a single to right by Joe Rudi. The Mets came up with a run in the fourth on an RBI single by John Milner that scored Cleo ...
I think Jhonny Peralta would finish last in the 40 yard dash against Rusty Staub and Sean Casey.
I've been a fan of the Washington Nationals ever since 1969, when they were the Les Expos de Montréal. My Canadian friends, remember Jarry Park and Rusty Staub? Later on Les Expos de Montréal had catcher Gary Carter, outfielders Tim Raines and Andre Dawson, third baseman Tim Wallach, and pitchers Steve Rogers and Bill Gullickson. In 1994, with manager Felipe Alou, Les Expos de Montréal, led by a talented group of players including Larry Walker, Moisés Alou, Marquis Grissom and Pedro Martínez, had the best record in the major leagues until the strike forced the cancellation of the remainder of the season. After this, the team was never the same, and moved to Washington D.C. in 2004. The Montreal fans in 1969 knew nothing about baseball . they would clap out of courtesy when a Montreal player struck out ... LOL!!
The only way I root for the is if Rusty Staub or Tim Raines throws out the first pitch at a playoff game.
Chipper Jones is now 59th on the all-time MLB hits list, between Rusty Staub and Lou Gehrig. All due respects to Rusty... it's kinda like being ranked between Millard Fillmore and Thomas Jefferson.
With his single in the 9th, Chipper Jones is now tied with Rusty Staub for 59th place on the all-time hit list with 2,716.
Met former MLBers Rusty Staub and Larry Walker last Friday. Randomly out and about in West Palm Beach. Nice guys.

How about the Blue Jays winning the American Legion World Series...again! Reminds me of the days fo the great Rusty Staub or the '46 team or that team from the 1930's. Wow. SJ Peters and my Rummel Raiders did it as well. If ever theere was such a thing as a baseball school, we are it.
Congratulations on passing Rusty Staub into 11th place all-time in games played!

//I went to the Mets game, they lost. On the plus side I met RUSTY STAUB and my childhood hero,JOHN FRANCO. Needless to say I fanboy squeed.
Dad having legit convo with rusty staub and John Franco since apparently they played together at some point...
Just saw that you posted this. Rusty Staub in 1975. I have his bobblehead on my desk!
If Rusty Staub had been 100%, I'll bet the Mets would have won, too.
Could throw Rusty Staub, Frank Tanana, and perhaps Kirk Gibson, Chet Lemon, and John Hiller in there, too.

Wow wow wow that was a tremendous interview by Dino Costa with Rusty Staub on GREAT RADIO
Miss the did their best and succeeded in killing that great baseball market. This Rusty Staub interview highlights it.
Loving this interview with Rusty Staub on right now.Great stuff.
My wife accidentally mixed up two of the favorite athletes of my youth the other day. We were talking about New York Mets of the past, and she said, "What about that outfielder, Rusty Staubach? Didn't you used to really like him?" Well, yes, I loved Rusty Staub and to this day Roger Staubach (first born-again Christian I ever heard about, by the way - well, him and his coach, Tom Landry) is my favorite quarterback. Roger Staubach was considered a two way threat because not only was he a terrific passer, but he was a great scrambling QB. If it was known back then that he also had a great eye at the plate and was a wonderful pinch-hitter, his reputation today would be even higher! : ^)

Baseball Past, Present & Torn Loyalties “ The one constant through all the years . . . baseball” My earliest memories of baseball take me back to the names of Rusty Staub, Joe Morgan and Bob Aspromonte during the early days of the Houston Astros witnessed in the Astrodome, the “eighth wonder of the world”. As an eight year old we were transferred to Washington DC and tried to become fans of the Senators. I belonged to the Darold Knowles fan club and my older brother belonged to the Aurelio Rodriguez fan club. And who could forget the giant of a man Frank Howard? But before we could even get our seats warm and completely fall in love they were moved to Texas. Like a fish needs water, man needs baseball, and it was a blessing to me that the Baltimore Orioles were so close by. The Jets might have had Joe Namath, but the Orioles had Jim Palmer and what a great team that was. Along with Palmer, there was Mike Cuellar and Dave McNally and an infield that will be forever ingrained in my mind, Boog ...
“Having fun on the golf course w/Carlton Fisk and Rusty Staub. is Coomer?
Rusty Staub's joint. The one that lasted longest. On First Ave in the low 60's on the West Side of the street. Too much a good thing every time.
Is Jason Giambi the Rusty Staub of our generation?
Orioles' Eddie Fisher turns 31 today. Rusty Staub tells me The Monkees & Jimi Hendrix are playing tonight at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium.
For 49 seasons I have cheered for the Houston Baseball team, from the 1963 Colt 45s to this year's Astros. I even worked for the organization as a Spacette (usher) back in the late 60s. But how they can go from National League to American League is beyond me. It's almost as big a disappointment as when they sold Rusty Staub or Joe Morgan.
Not the best quality, but IMO the best overview of Rusty Staub and his connection to Montreal and how the French Canadian fans embraced him. Was there a more distinctive voice btw in Montreal radio than Ted Blackman growing up?
Listen to my interview with Rusty Staub, on-line, at CJAD.COM. If you're like me, the memories will come flooding back! The expansion days of the Montreal Expos were a joy for this youngster growing up in NDG. Le Grande Orange was the face of the franchise for three glorious seasons.
"When I die and they do an autopsy, they’ll find a little part of my heart that still has that MTL on it” - Rusty Staub
