#357 Floyd Bannister
Why this card is awesome: Because what a poor bastard Bannister was. Look at all the crappy teams he was on.
Bannister is the father of current pitcher Brian Bannister, who looks like he has a shot to be even better than his dad was.
Cool stat: Bannister never got a lot of press, but he was one of the more reliable starters of the 1980s. From 1980 to 1988, he and Dave Stieb led with 4 seasons with 200 IP and an ERA+ of 120.
