#20 Kevin Gross
Why this card is awesome: Because, although most of us hadn't yet heard of it in 1988, Kevin Gross was actually trying to Riverdance in this photo.
Cool stat: From 1984 to 1993, Gross had at least 10 losses each year. In fact, he had the second most losses in baseball over that period, going 99-116. Charlie Hough had more losses (118) but he also had a dozen more wins (111.) Plus, Hough had en ERA+ of 109 while Gross was at 92. And finally, Hough pitched about 230 innings more than Gross.
