Daily Conlon: 298 through 306

Here are todays Daily Conlon cards numbered 298 through 306, and it features former Brooklyn Dodger Ed Brandt.

"Big Ed" Brandt spent only one season in Blue- 1936. He was traded to Brooklyn with utility player Randy Moore for future Hall of Famer Al Lopez and 3 other Brooklynites. He was decent on the mound for us, going 11-13 with a 3.50 ERA in 29 starts, but would be better known for a trade a season later to Pittsburgh. He was sent to the Pirates for Cookie Lavagetto. As you may know, Cookie became an All-Star for the Dodgers and a popular member of the team.
