McClure pitched well down the stretch for the Mets out of the pen in 88. Had a couple more good years with the Cardinals after that. Wouldn't have hurt to have held on to him.

This is one of those lefty's who kept hanging on, but for a slightly different reason.... he could actually get guys out.

I didn't know until today that McClure was at one point a Met. I remember him being a perennial every- fifth-day pitcher for the Brewers, where he won a pennant among other things.

Looking back I think it's interesting just how little McClure was used as a Met. He wasn't a scrub, he had success before and after being a Met, but he barely ever pitched during his months with the team.

Was he constantly hurt or was it just that the game was different then? Back then I guess Davey could use his starters for 7 or 8 innings and then go right to McDowell or Myers. Today as a left handed reliever who was effective, McClure would be making 75-80 appearances a year for a team like the Mets.

The game definitely changed in 20 years.
