MOONLIGHT GRAHAM AWARD CANDIDATE LIST
Mike Payne spent parts of eight years in the Braves minor league system and pitched on six different teams (Kingsport, Durham, Savannah, Richmond, Greenville and Sumter). But Mikes' career major league stats looks a lot like Steve Ziem's: Three career games, 0-1 record. He lost his only career start on August 22, 1984.
Mike died at the very young age of 40 in 2002.
