Great moments. Bucky Dent.

People forget that Bucky drove in 4 runs in 4 games in the ALCS, and 7 in 6 games in the World Series in 1978. His career high in RBI was 58, so for him to drive in 14 runs over 11 games was, to say the least, some kind of hot streak!

The Yankees traded Bucky to Texas straight up for Lee Mazzilli. Lee then went to the Pirates for 3 minor leaguers and Tim Burke. Tim went to the Expos for some guy named Pat Rooney, and gave the Expos 6 1/2 excellent seasons of relief work. Thanks Bucky!
