1989 Topps Major League Debut #61: Shawn Holman
PHOTO: A fairly boring photo except for that weird scaffolding at the top.
STAT: Since 1970, Holman has one of the worst strikeout-to-walk ratios for any pitcher with an ERA+ of 200 or better. Try to wrap your head around his career stats. He finished with a career ERA less than half of league average--excellent--and yet had more career walks than strikeouts--terrible. This is consistent with his career minor league numbers, where his walk total was high and his strikeout total was low (although he did at least have more K's.)
Just 5 major-league games for this fellow.
