#533 John Farrell
Why this card is awesome: Because this is two Indians cards in the last 3 cards. Makes me wonder if Farrell was a late addition to the set like Shawn Hillegas. Farrell is now pitching coach for the Red Sox.
Also, I swear, doesn't it look like Farrell is a younger version of Doc Edwards? I am totally serious.
Cool stat: Farrell's got one of the more recent seasons with at least 90 IP but an ERA+ of 65 or worse. Interestingly, most of the guys on that list had pretty good careers overall, which is why I guess they were given the chance to go 90+ innings in a year while doing so poorly.
