#114 Jeff Russell
Why this card is awesome: Because of new beginnings. Russell joined the Rangers and put up a horrific statline in 1985 as a starter. The Rangers tried him in relief in 1986 and 1987 and he did pretty well. Then, after another experiment as a starter in 1988, he went on to have a very nice stretch as a closer from 1989 to 1993.
Cool stat: Mike Greenwell owned Russell, with 11 RBI in 13 AB, including a grand slam.
