#63 Jimmy Jones

Why this card is awesome: Because of no air-brushing whatsoever. Click on Jones' picture above to see the full-size image, and check out his face. That's all I'm sayin'.

Cool stat: Jones had a bad career for the Yankees. Across 1989 and 1990, he had the worst WHIP among all pitchers, minimum 90 IP.

I suddenly feel very sorry for Jimmy Jones.

That is great for a Yankees pitcher. Have to let my Yankee fan friend see this.

If I remember correctly, wasn't Dwight Gooden still on the board (and also highly regarded)when Jimmy was drafted? First 5 picks:

1. Shawon Dunston
2. Augie Schmidt (Tor)
3. Jimmy Jones
4. Bryan Oelkers (Cle)
5. Dwight Gooden

Padre fans never let Jimmy forget this.
