#736 Matt Young

Why this card is awesome: Because of the rare glimpse of a scoreboard in this set! Young is standing right in front of the word "BALL" and I assume that's the beginning of "STRIKE" further to the right, with the "S" stuck behind his name banner. Cool.

Cool stat: Matt Young has been robbed by history. He was not such a bad pitcher. For example, his 1990 remains the most recent season that a pitcher lost 18 games with an ERA+ of 113 or better. The Mariners were terrible that year. He's also, though, remembered for losing this no hitter.
