#330 Eddie Whitson
Why this card is awesome: Because, damn it, I am starting to get pissed off with these card numbers. Whitson was coming off 3 years of well-below league average ERA and yet he got a card ending in zero. No good.
Cool stat: Whitson is tied for most seasons since 1901 with an ERA+ in the 80s. He was a substandard pitcher. (Note I mean literally the 80s--not the 1980s.)
