#365 Floyd Youmans
Why this card is awesome: Because that Expo in the background (probably Vance Law) doesn't look ready to play, considering he's not in a defensive stance nor is he looking toward the batter. Is there any chance that Youmans is actually warming up on a sideline mound here?
Cool stat: For pitchers with 500 to 600 IP in their careers (not including active pitchers, or else Joe Nathan would be first) Youmans is 4th in fewest hits allowed per 9 innings. Of course, he walked a lot of guys, as did most of the other leaders on this list (or else they would have pitched a lot more than 500-600 innings.)
