#177 Frank Tanana
Why this card is awesome: Because of awesome control. Look at the fantastically low walk totals, and fantastically high K/BB ratios throughout Tanananana's career!
Cool stat: Check out Tanana's neutralized stats at his B-R.com page. In reality, he went 240-236 (.504) in his career with a career-best 19 wins in 1976. If neutralized, he's at 245-216 (.531) in his career with 20 wins in 1976. If those had been his real stats, he'd probably be remembered closer to the great pitcher that he actually was.
