|WALKED ONLY 72 IN 184.2 INNINGS COMBINED.|
|WHERE'RE THE STATS?|
WHY I LIKE IT
- An appropriate Reds card from 1990 of two of "The Nasty Boys'' who grabbed baseball by the throat and shook it. Randy Myers, the closer, saved 31 games for the World Series champs. Rob Dibble, primarily the set-up man, added 11 saves and 136 strikeouts in 98 innings, 12.5 per nine. Along with Norm Charlton, this was one of the hardest-throwing lock-down bullpens of all time. They also might have been slightly el loco.
WHAT'S THE STORY?
- U.S. Playing Cards issued this set to mimic a standard 52-card deck, including two wild cards and two jokers. The other wild card was Jose Canseco/Mark McGwire, who should've been the jokers, but that went to Julio Franco and Jack Armstrong.
HOW I ACQUIRED IT
- Saw it on COMC and thought, "That sure captures the heart of the '90 Reds.''
