#666 Mario Soto
Why this card is awesome: Because this is card #666 and it's a huge red guy. Must be Satan. No, it's just Mario Soto.
Cool stat: Soto was a fantastic pitcher who is hugely underrated. Instead of posting more about it here, I'm going to refer you to a piece I wrote here. He was one of the best starters in baseball from 1982 to 1985. It was injuries that kept him from having a long career. His neutralized career W-L% is 106-88, .546, as compared to the actual 100-92, .521.
