1974 Topps Giants -- Part 4

Juan Marichal did not pitch for the Giants in 1974. He was purchased by the Boston Red Sox in December 1973.

Jim Barr was 13-9 with a 2.74 ERA and two saves in 44 games (27 starts). He led the Giants in innings pitched with 239.1.

Randy Moffitt led the Giants with 15 saves. He was 5-7 with a 4.50 ERA in 61 games (1 start).

Ron Bryant had a big comedown from his league-leading 24 wins in 1973. He was 3-15 with a 5.61 ERA in 41 games (23 starts).
Edit: I just picked this up from Baseball Chronology:
March 15 - Giants 24-game winner
Ron Bryant is injured in a swimming pool accident in Yuma‚ AZ. His record will drop to 3-15 and he will never again be a consistent winner.

Elias Sosa was 9-7 with a 3.48 ERA and six saves in 68 appearances.

Yeah--I have more of an appreciation of this set after I scanned in the Giants' cards.
