John Tudor, pitcher for the 1984 Pirates. He was in the majors with the Red Sox for five seasons before the Pirates acquired him in December of 1983 in exchange for Mike Easler. Tudor had won 13 games in each of his last two seasons with Boston. For the Pirates he went 12-11, 3.27 in 32 starts, throwing a total of 212 innings. Almost a year to the day the Pirates traded for him, they dealt him to the Cardinals in a four-player deal that got them George Hendrick. Tudor would have a career year in 1985 leading St Louis to the World Series with 21 wins and ten shutouts. He never won more than 13 games in any of his other 11 seasons in the majors and threw just six other shutouts in his entire career. He turns 66 today.
