#183 Tom Lawless
Why this card is awesome: Because of the little floating head on Tom's left shoulder. That's his little angel telling him to smile nicely for the camera. Little devil Tom is standing behind Tom's right shoulder telling him to rip a huge fart right as the camera goes off.
Cool stat: Jayson Stark always used to pick on Lawless as the Last Guy to Get a Hit each season, which I thought was pretty lame. There isn't much else to say about Lawless, though, except that he was a hero to the Reds for being the guy they traded away to bring Pete Rose back. Lawless has his most career PAs off Carlton and he hit him well.
