#161 Bryn Smith
Why this card is awesome: Because of Gary Roenicke being oddly mentioned by his full name on the back. The only other Roenicke in MLB was his brother Ron, and I think there would be no confusion between them using first and last name only.
Cool stat: Smith had an unusual 1985. Since 1901, only 10 pitchers have ever had a season with 220 IP, a WHIP under 1.06, and K/BB ratio of 3, and yet an ERA+ no higher than 120.
