After the end of the 1975 season, on October 28, 1975, the Chicago Cubs sent long-time shortstop Don Kessinger to the St. Louis Cardinals for relief pitcher Mike Garman and minor leaguer Bobby Hrapmann

Upon Further Review:

This was a very big deal as far as Cubs fans were concerned. The Chicago Cubs, who finished in last place for two straight seasons - 1974-1975, were hoping to move up in the standings and were willings to try anything. Don Kessinger, an All-Star shortstop, who joined the Cubs back in 1964 and became the club starting shortstop the next season, was a durable all-around player. He was the team's leadoff hitter, and played over 140 games in ten consecutive seasons, 1966 thru 1975. He won back-to-back Gold Gloves for his fielding excellence - 1969-1970. Don Kessinger was a seven time All-Star shortstop during his 12-year tenure with the Chicago Cubs, and led the league in assists and double plays four times, putouts three times, and fielding average and total chances per game once each. The fact of the matter was he was 33-years old and the Cubs management needed a durable reliever (MIke Garman).

Mike Garman, born in Caldwell Idaho on 9.16.1949, broke into the majors with the Boston Red Sox of the American League as a 20-year starting pitcher in 1969 and played mostly in the minors during his first 4 years, 1969-1973. Mike Garman's big break came when he was traded to the Cardinals in a 6-player deal in December of 1973. His first year in St. Louis , used as a middle reliever and closer, he compiled a sterling 7-2 record with 6 saves, had a very fine 2.64 earned run average in 81 2/3 innings, spanning 64 games. In 1975 the right-handed Mike Garman worked a career high 66 games, posted a 3-8 record with 10 saves and had a stingy 2.39 ERA in 79 innings. After being traded to the Cubs, Mike Garman numbers fell to 2-4 w/l with one save, 4.95 ERA in 47 games, including 2 starts. The next year, 1977, he was traded to the LA Dodgers.

Bobby Hrapmann was a star baseball player for Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana during the early 1970s. He did not play in the major league.

Transaction occurred on 05/20/1978:
Los Angeles Dodgers (NL) to Montreal Expos (NL)
Mike Garman
Montreal Expos (NL) to Los Angeles Dodgers (NL)
Larry Landreth
  Gerry Hannahs

The Los Angeles Dodgers traded hardworking relief master Mike Garman to the Montreal Expos for young reliever Gerry Hannahs and  starting pitcher Larry Landreth

Upon Further Review

In hindsight Mike Garman was one of the top relievers during this era. To be fair Gerry Hannahs and Larry Landreth were up-and-coming young pitchers with loads of talent.

Tom Garman appeared in 49 games in 1977, had a 4-4 record with 12 saves and a very solid 2.73 ERA. He was 28-years old at the time of the trade and had his best seasons while pitching for the St Louis Cardinals in 1974-75.

Gerry Hannahs, 6-ft, 3 inches, 210-pounds and 24-years old at trade time. The left-hander pitched parts of 2 seasons in LA and had his days in major league baseball.

Larry Landreth, 6-ft, 1-inch, 175 pounds and 23-years old. A right hander, Larry Landreth pitched two years for the Expos as a starting pitcher.
