1987 matt young

we're starting matt young week here at oh my o-pee-chee! enjoy the ride.

matt young was traded to the dodgers in december of 1986. here is his 1987 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
the dodgers needed some bullpen help, and young became part of the closer by committee, along with alejandro pena. after converting from a starter, young had saved 13 games for the mariners in 1986 while appearing in a career high 65 games. with the dodgers, he appeated in 47 games, all in relief, and saved 11 to go along with his 5-8 win-loss record. still, the 1987 dodgers showed no improvement over 1986, and more drastic changes were going to be made. one of those changes had young on the move again...

voici à vous, 1987 matt young!
