#197 Lance McCullers



Why this card is awesome: Because, HOLY CRAP, Joey Cora is in the background again! He's already been on two other cards so far. Also, McCullers looks quite thin here. I think he might have eaten himself out of a career.

Cool stat: Only 7 times in history has a pitcher made no game starts, pitched at least 120 innings, and had at least a K per inning. McCullers has the most recent such season.

I used to get this guy's name mixed up with Rance Mulliniks.

Wow, good point...just about all the same letters, plus rhyming first names.

On many of McCullers' other cards, he is shown looking away from the plate as he delivers the ball - hardly a recommended pitching technique.
