and the topps back:
schatzeder had won a career high 11 games for detroit in 1980 with 9 complete games and 2 shutouts.  in 1981 however, his era ballooned to over 6.00 and he became expendable.  sent to the giants in exchange for larry herndon, schatzeder lasted just half the season in san fran before he was purchased by his old team, the expos.  after 4 seasons in montreal, schatzeder began the journeyman stage of his career with stops in philadelphia, minnesota, cleveland, back to minnesota, houston, new york (queens), and houston.  along the way he managed to win a world series ring with the twins in 1987 after pitching 4.1 scoreless innings against the tigers in the alcs.
voici à vous, 1982 dan schatzeder!
