#670 Dan Plesac

Why this card is awesome: Because Plesac is one of the best relievers from the last 20 years and nobody knows it. He came in as a very effective closer for the Brewers in the last 1980s and pitched effectively through his final year with the Phillies at age 41 in 2003. Way to go, legendary scout Ray Poitevint!

Cool stat: Plesac had one of the best-ever final seasons for a 40+ year old pitcher with at least 30 IP.

but anyway, future bucco!
