#234 Ken Dayley

Why this card is awesome: Because it's Kenny Daly, radio station manager from the sitcom Frasier! OK, actually it's not even spelled correctly for that.

Cool stat: From 1985 to 1989, Dayley had the 18th-best ERA+ for relief pitchers with at least 200 total innings. Maybe that doesn't sound so impressive, but look at the names ahead of him and realize the class he was in: Doug Jones, Plesac, Henke, Franco, Murphy, plus Worrell, Eichhorn, Henneman, Thigpen, Righetti, Quisenberry, and Lee Smith.

This card captures the classic pitcher's form from off the mound.
