#479 Don Shaw

1971 was his career year 7-2 win loss and 2.65 ERA....otherwise an inconsistent reliever for 5 seasons.... started in Mets organization who drafted him 35th in 1965....Never pitching regularly anywhere....wormed his way  to the 1967 Mets and held his own with a  2.98 ERA in 40 games....spent most of  1968 in minors, but only gave up one run in 12 innings for the Mets....offered up in expansion draft and picked by Montreal...Splitting time between minors and Montreal in inaugural year..... Played 1970 in the minors but what was noteable in that he was sold to Cards chain mid season...1971 see above.... 1972 poor start prompted a trade to Oakland..... one of the rabble  of 47 players who played for the 1972 A’s....was roughed up there also and wasn’t on playoff roster however.
