#101 Allan Anderson

Why this card is awesome: Because of the mention of baseball lifer Floyd Baker.

Cool stat: Anderson was simply awesome in 1988. He had just one of 12 seasons in the 1980s with 200 IP and an ERA+ of at least 160. Any list a player can make along with Bret Saberhagen, Jimmy Key, Mike Scott, Roger Clemens, Dave Stieb, John Tudor, Dwight Gooden, Orel Hershiser, Steve Carlton, and Don Sutton can't be bad!

Yeah, but his opponents batting avg. (of .261) was 43 points higher than any of the other guys on that list. So, he was fairly hittable.
