    (January 7, 1950- )

    During winning streaks, he would wear the same sweatshirt to each game and stop showering, earning the nickname 'Skuz.'
    A teammate described him as 'the most disgusting thing you've ever seen on two legs.'
    When a carful of young women followed the team bus, he dropped trou and shot a moon out the rear window.
    He was accused by Billy Martin of throwing spitballs.
    While warming up in Boston, he responded to heckling by throwing a ball into the bleachers, injuring a Red Sox fan (September 16, 1975).
    He claims that many stories about his eccentric behavior were exaggerated by the press; for example, although he did wear the same sweatshirt during winning streaks, he said that he washed it before each game.
    He was the only pitcher in Expos history to win 20 games in a season (1978).
    He became a successful pitching coach with the minor league Richmond Flying Squirrels.
    He said, 'It took me a while to grow up and understand some things. I made some mistakes like we all do.'
