#7T Jose DeLeon
I just got finished talking about how great it is that Score put the uniform numbers on the backs of the cards. Check out the front--DeLeon wore #48, right? Well according to the back, he wore #26. What gives? Well check out the 1987 White Sox roster. He wore #26 with them. So, this is a traded set, but they used the number from his previous team? That's ridiculous.
For pitchers with at least 1000 IP and a W-L% worse than .450, DeLeon has the best hit rate of all time. (Too bad he walked tons of guys too.)
We talked a lot about DeLeon on his card on the 88 Topps Cards blog. Only a pretty damn good pitcher could lose 19 games twice in his career. His career neutralized record is 106-101, compared with his actual figure of 86-119.
