#787 Bill Almon

Why this card is awesome: Because as much as we make fun of Jay Baller, Almon's actually got some good chest hair going in this photo too.

Cool stat: Almon stole 2 bases in a game 10 different times, and his team won 8 of those 10 games. Oddly, though, with those 20 stoles bases, he scored only 6 runs.

Interesting. He left the White Sox after 1982 and in 1983, they won their division by 20 games.

He got to the Mets in 1987, and they missed the postseason three games back.

Could this be the curse of Billy Almon?
