  •  Kuenn (none)
    Harvey Kuenn (pronounced "keen").  Thomas hit a lot of homers, but he wasn't a particularly good hitter, and not much of a CF either -- a somewhat more athletic Steve Balboni, essentially, although he might have been a better player if his workout regimen had ever gone beyond the 12-ounce curl.  And yes, Ben Oglivie was on that team, too, along with Charlie Moore and Jim Gantner.  Starters were, let's see, Vuckovich (totally undeserving Cy Young), Caldwell, Haas...I can't remember the rest of the rotation.  Rollie Fingers was the closer (he won the Cy in '81, IIRC).  The WS was a show-down between the 2 superstar relief aces, Fingers and Sutter.
