Bill Gogolewski Born
I don't know how I missed this last year, I mean, Bill Gogolewski? That's a great name. Unfortunately, that's about the only thing great about him. Gogolewski was a right-handed starter with the Senators/Rangers franchise (being one of a handful of players who was with the team during its move) and then bounced around to the Indians and White Sox. For his career, Gogolewski won just fifteen games while losing twenty-four.
Like a lot of politicians, Gogolewski's best year was also the last he was in Washington, when he went 6-5 with a 2.75 ERA for the Senators in nearly a hundred and twenty-five innings. Other than that one year, Gogolewski never had a season with an ERA under 4.22. But hey, when you've gone through life with a name like Gogolewski, I suppose a few mediocre years on the mound are something you can live with.
