1976 Phillies pitchers

Finishing up the 1976 Phillies redux project with the pitching staff. The top four starters for this team were Carlton, Lonborg, Kaat and Christensen. Tom Underwood, who died this past November, was the #5 starter. The bullpen was anchored by Ron Reed and Tug McGraw. Believe it or not, Reed pitched in one more game (59) and had three more saves than Tug in 1976. Gene Garber also had 50+ appearances from the bullpen.
