The Senators and Yankees, which ended in a forfeit...

STARTING LINEUPS:

New York Yankees
1. Murcer cf
2. Clarke 2b
3. Torres rf
4. White lf
5. Ellis 1b
6. Munson c
7. Hansen 3b
8. Baker ss
9. Kekich p

Washington Senators
1. Maddox cf
2. Harrah ss
3. Howard 1b
4. Billings c
5. Burroughs lf
6. Nelson 3b
7. Unser rf
8. Ragland 2b
9. Bosman p

Some thoughts: WOW did that Yankee lineup suck. Rusty Torres as #3 batter? Floyd Baker? Ron Hansen was one of about 1,000 post-Boyer 3b. The Yanks would be fooled by Rich McKinney and take a long shot on Mexican star Celerino Sanchez for 1972 before finally trading for Graig Nettles.

As for the Senators...Dick Billings at #4 is a bad joke. That's Elliot Maddox in cf, not Garry. It would have been laughable to think of Jeff Burroughs as a future MVP at this point.

thanks again to the wonderful www.retrosheet.org

I don't really want to debate his hall of fame merits right now ... but if he gets in, I will wish then that it had happened this year. Wright Thompson at ESPN has a nice column (sports.espn.go.com) up about O'Neil that I would point anyone to.
