Just a bit tougher to make the playoffs in those days than the joke of a playoff system we have now (or the worse one we'll soon have).

Currently in his 11th season with the Baltimore Orioles, making it 10 seasons in a row that Roberts has played for a team with a losing record.

Roberts, fellow Oriole Nick Markakis, and #25 Aaron Hill (TOR) are the only three who haven't played in the postseason.

For an MLB regular, I can't think of a much worse career path.

One day, I just totalled up the number (it was over 600), which is over 80% of the 750 (30 x 25) major league roster spots. If that kind of volatility is happening on a yearly basis, long-tenured players on one team will become even more unusual than they already are.

Whitaker and Trammel debuted in the same game (9/7/77). Jack Morris and Lance Parrish both debuted that season too, and all four lasted ten years together.
Does anybody know their relationship? It would be a great story if they were close on and off the field, although from some anecdotal stories, I think their personalities would not mesh.
I think Bill James claimed Whitaker would duck and roll when an airplane would fly over a stadium. I can't see Trammel doing that.
