#134 Chuck Tanner
Why this card is awesome: Because I can't figure out who Tanner is talking to. His chatty partner appears to be wearing a blue shirt that doesn't match the Braves uniform being worn by Tanner or the guy behind him. Please don't tell me that Tanner is fraternizing with the opposing team!
Cool stat: The 1988 Braves featured a couple of crappy pitchers who never went anywhere. One was this piece of junk named Tom Glavine, who went 7-17 with a 4.56 ERA. Another one was this lame pickup they got by trading away the awesome Doyle Alexander. His name, not that you'd remember it, was John Smoltz. In 1988 Smoltz went 2-7 with a 5.48 ERA. Neither guy, Glavine nor Smoltz, ever amounted to anything in Major League Baseball.
