    Dick "Dirt" Tidrow, a king-sized RHP for 13 years in the Bigs, died on 7/10 at age 74.

    Tidrow came up to the Majors in 1972 with the Indians, pitching there from 1972-74. Traded away by the Tribe early in '74, he then spent the rest of his MLB career performing the unusual feat of pitching for both teams in the two largest MLB cities at the time...New York and Chicago. First he was a Yankee from his early '74 arrival until an early 1979 trade sent him to the Cubs, where he came out of the pen through 1982. After that, he took the mound for the White Sox in 1983 before finishing his playing career with the Mets in 1984.

    Bryan Watson, a defenseman whose 16-season career began in the NHL era of the Original Six and ended in the defunct WHA, died on 7/8 at age 78.

    Beginning in 1963-64, he opened his career with 2 seasons with the Canadiens. After playing the next seasons with the Red Wings, he then returned to Montreal for the 1967-68 campaign.

    Beginning in 1968-69, he began a string of several years playing for teams from the Second Six, the expansion team that doubled the size of the NHL overnight. He began that run with 50 games for the Oakland Seals before being dealt to the Penguins for his final 18 games for the season. He continued with Pittsburgh until another deal sent him to the Blues for 11 games.

    Watson then made a third stop during 1973-74, heading back to Detroit for his last 21 games of the season. He continued his encore with the Original 6 team into 1976-77 when, after 14 games, he was on the move again, this time to Washington. He finished the season with the Capitals, played the entire season in DC the following season, and then split his final go-round (1978-79) between the Caps and the WHA Cincinnati Stingers.

    Over that long career, he only led the NHL in a single category once...212 penalty minutes in 1971-72 with the Penguins.
