If you were trying to recall everyone who played on the New York Mets roster in 1969, then Bob Johnson would likely be the one you would NEVER think of. Jesse Hudson is easier to recall because he, at least, was pictured as a Met on a rookie card in 1970.

I remember him primarily as a reliever for Pittsburgh and his 1974 Topps Traded card. His afro was as red as the colors used to represent the team he was traded to (Cleveland Indians).

I was more upset about the Mets trading Johnson than Amos Otis! I thought this guy was gonna be a strikeout king. Like Buzz Capra, that first year after the trade he was big, but didn't do much afterwards. He did win a World Series with the 71 Pirates, though.

Believe it or not right after the Mets traded Johnson in 1970 he had 206 k's in 214 innings with the Kansas City Royals then for some reason the Royals traded this young fireballer to the Pirates and he started a game in the 1971 World Series which he lost. Overall a very strange career. I often wonder about guys like this who do amazing things in the beginning of their careers then come nowhere's near their early glory afterwards and are out of baseball pretty quick.
