What if the post-1980 Philadelphia Phillies had stayed pat for the most part? What if most of the trades made by general manager Paul Owens had not been considered or consummated?
An undrafted 1974 signing, John Poff hit well in the Phillies minor league system during the late 1970's and enjoyed a dozen-game cameo in September 1979.
Right-hander Jack Kucek appeared in parts of seven big-league seasons, including making four relief appearances with the Phillies in September 1979.
The Phillies gave outfielder Orlando Isales his only three games of Major League Baseball experience at age 20 during the final weeks of the 1980 season.
The Phillies gave 21-year-old former first round draft pick Scott Munninghoff his only four big-league mound appearances early in the 1980 season.
