#111 Expos Leaders
Why this card is awesome: Because of the retro hands-on-knees pose. By the late 1980's, most players were well on their way to becoming overpaid prima donnas, but you could count on Les Expos to stick with tradition. (I know it's Vance Law on the right, but not sure about on the left...is it Herm Winningham? No, It's Hubie Brooks.)
Cool stat: The 1988 Expos pitching staff was pretty awesome. The Mets and Dodgers had better team ERAs, but the worst starter on the 1988 Expos (other than Neal Heaton, who was moved to the bullpen) was Floyd Youmans, with a 3-6 record and 3.21 ERA, or maybe Brian Holman, 4-8, 3.23, or maybe John Dopson, 3-11, 3.04.
