Newsweek ► JZouM* Monday, October 30, 8:00 p.m. Rudder Theatre Hargrove traded to San Diego United Press International ARLINGTON — The Texas Ran gers Wednesday traded five-year first baseman Mike Hargrove, who slumped to .251 with 17 errors in 1978, to San Diego for Oscar Gam ble, an outfielder with a seven-figure income and seven home runs last season. The deal also sent infielder Kurt Bevacqua and minor league catcher Bill Fahey to the Padres in exchange for catcher Dave Roberts and an amount of cash officially undisclosed but openly discussed as $300,(KK). Hargrove, 29, weary of rumors of the deal for three weeks, said he would “love to stay in Texas’ (his home state) but was looking forward to playing for the Padres. He said the key to the trade was the money Texas received. “The Rangers need the money, that’s the only thing I can figure Straight legged, bells, saddleman boot jeans are 1188 All other goods are 20% on This includes men and womens tops, jeans and overalls This Policy in Effect Everyday Shop 10-6 Mon.-Sat. 800 Villa Maria (across from Manor East) This is to Introduce You to One of Our Leading College Protector Representatives.

Hargrove said the Rangers suf fered from discipline problems and lack of confidence in manager Bill Hunter during the stormy 1978 sea son. “You can’t blame Billy,” Hargrove said of the team’s second-place finish. “He didn’t run and throw and hit the ball. But I don’t think Billy had a good year managing. I don t think he was same kind of manager this year as last. I really couldn’t fig ure it out either. He didn’t seem to be the same Billy Hunter. Ofcourse, me hitting .250 could have affected that. Hunter, in his first full season with Texas, was fired before the last game of the year and replaced by coach Pat Corrales. Hargrove was part of the Rangers 1978 infield collapse, dropping from a career batting average of .303 to .251. He also committed 17 errors, many as second baseman Bump Wills, who slumped to .250 after a rookie season in which he hit .287. Shortstop Bert Campaneris, despite playing in only 98 games, committed 20 errors, hit . 186 and lost his job to Conference notes rookie Nelson Norman. At third base, Toby Harrah fell to a .229 aver age with 12 homers after a .263 sea son with 27 homers in 1977. T’ve given Texas four good years out of five, ” Hargrove said. "One bud year and I’m gone. You wonder why me, why not somebody else who hasn’t contributed a whole lot?”’ Hargrove said Hunter struggled particularly with the pitching staff’, going with some hurlers too long and pulling others too (juickly. Also Hunter never seemed in control of the team after arguing with Dock Ellis on the team bus about the pitcher’s drinking practices. But Hargrove said the overall problem was elusive. "I didn’t know during the season and really haven’t come up with a solution yet. There were four or five of who had had years. When you have starters who have as bad a year as we did, it’s tough to win. It’s really a tribute to the talent on the ballclub that we won 87 games and finished second. I’m including myself as one who had a terrible year. "We might have won it had even a eounle of those guys had good years. The Rangers have a helluva chance to win the thing in 79.
