#209 Richard Dotson



Why this card is awesome: Because Dotson is so old that he was once traded for with Bobby Bonds.

Cool stat: That 1983 was a real fluke. Since 1960, Dotson had the 4th-highest WHIP for a pitcher winning at least 22 games. Plus, since 1960, he has had the 4th-worst K/BB ratio for a pitcher winning at least 22 games.

I think he was actually traded WITH Bonds, since Bonds was on the Angels at the time...

Chicago still has a lot of love for Richard Dotson. I got hate mail when I named someone else to his 1983 uniform number 34 in my greatest uniform series. I had put him at a later number further down the list, that he wore every year before 1983.

Oh, it's Jurassic Park. The character's name is actually Dodgson.
