Why go after this autograph: If you need to know what kind of pitcher he was like think Freddy Garcia, just maybe a bit less flakey. He was a career 122-78 pitcher, 4.00 ERA and a WHIP of 1.32. He has one All Star appearance and once was voted 9th in MVP voting. He actually threw two no hitters. and his overall record puts him in the top 100 pitchers of all time as far as winning percentage goes. He was also one of the most charismatic players on those popular Dodgers teams of the late 40′s and 50′s.
Current NFL Comparison: Freddy Garcia or Matt Morris
