For five solid seasons, left-handed starting pitcher John Tudor toiled for the Red Sox. From 1979 through 1983, Tudor put up pretty good numbers (39-32, 3.96). Then, Boston traded him to the Pirates for Mike Easler, and the lefty's career took off. After one good year in Pittsburgh, he was dealt again—this time to St. Louis. In his first season for the Redbirds, Tudor went 21-8 with a 1.93 ERA—finishing second in the NL Cy Young voting. In total, over 12 seasons, Tudor went 117-72 with an impressive career ERA of 3.12. He was a solid, homegrown arm that the Red Sox let get away. Tudor turns 64 years-old today. We wish John a very happy birthday.
