#685 Ron Darling
Why this card is awesome: Because this is the second guy in 6 cards to be born in Honolulu. Charlie Hough was too. And for that matter, Darling's teammate Sid Fernandez was too.
Cool stat: Darling was vastly overrated. Sure, he finished his career with a 136-116 record (.540) but his ERA+ was just 95. His neutralized record was 122-138, .469. Darling has one of the most recent seasons with 4 shutouts but at best a league-average ERA.
